About the project
"Misfortune does not happen to the hills, it happens to people." Life sometimes brings surprises, and sometimes they are very sad. A happy family can find themselves struggling with adversity in a short time. They should not be left alone. Through the "We are with you at the right time" project, since 2012 we have been helping the employees of U. S. Steel Košice and its subsidiary companies who find themselves in a difficult life situation. Our effort is to help these colleagues and their families with young children to get out of social isolation, to recover their mental well-being, to have new experiences and to make friendly contacts.
In the last six years we have helped over 60 families in this way. Each family received one-off financial support from the U. S. Steel Košice Foundation. The children were included in the Wishing Tree project and were pleased with the Christmas gifts bought for them by steelmakers.
The families involved in last year's "We are with you at the right time" project experienced unforgettable moments in various interesting events. We organised for them a family weekend stay at the U. S. Steel Košice recreational center in Medzev, they enjoyed a guided tour of Košice led by a well-known tourist guide, and the marwellous atmosphere of the Košice Peace Marathon. Several families took part for the first time in company events like Family Safety Day or Family Sports Day as well.
