Yesterday in Sarajevo, Asmir Begovic symbolically opened a sports playground of the Institute for Special Education and Care of Children Mjedenica, as the main donor of the project. This is also the first project of Asmir Begovic Foundation in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Since the winter slowed construction works, playground will be formally put into operation during the month of April.
The event was also attended by the Mayor of Old Town township, Ibrahim Hadzibajric, President of Special Olympics of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Enver Cosickic, and as the host, Director of the Institute Mjedenica, Selmir Hadzic.
Begovic stressed his joy for the opportunity to socialize with students and pupils of the Institute. “Sport is very important in the growing up of every child, especially because it develops team spirit and all mental and physical capacities.
As an athlete, I’m very pleased to have the opportunity to bring sport closer to growing number of children, and also provide them with necessary facilities so that they can engage themselves in sport”, said Begovic, adding that he is happy that the first project of the Asmir Begovic Foundation in Bosnia and Herzegovina is about to finish, and that this is certainly not the last time that the Foundation brings joy to children of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
