“Working with kids, I always ensure we have talented athletes. They need our support, help, and advice from experienced professionals. These players will defend our honour at international sports competitions and the most prestigious tennis tournaments. I am glad to help children with my experience and contribute to their development,” said Elina Svitolina.
“The activity of charitable organisations allows solving important problems for the society. One of such problems is the financing of children’s and youth sports.
