Polystart Foundation supports since 2010 POWER GYM CLUB activity, both current activity and in 2014 the  participation of Catalin Oprea (POWER  GYM CLUB Craiova) to the World Championship of Muay Thai that took place from 14 to 24 March 2014 to Pattaya, where he won the silver medal.



Polystart Foundation sponsored the organization of the fifth edition of the National Chemistry Contest “Petru Poni”, following the sponsorship of the second edition in 2011.



The foundation is proud with the organization of the County Team Contest “Jean Negulescu” :Classic Chess Veterans and Memorial Cup by partnering with the Chess Association of  Dolj County in 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 providing them the best conditions for the contest in “Proiect” building.


Polystart Foundation stands by poet Constantin Preda, granting financial support for the publication of the volume of love poems “I want to give names of flowers to your knees.”

Constantin Preda (born January 12, 1961, in the village Damian Sadova, Dolj County) began publishing in “Flame” (No. 41-8 October 1981 page 19, with a presentation by Fanus Neagu) and editorial in 1984 with a volume of poems “My sister, nightfall” (Publisher “Romanian Writing”), pushed by writers like Fanus Neagu, Marin Sorescu, Eugene Black and Emil Gheorghe Pitut Brumaru.

In an attempt to define the poet, his love poems of love are always near at hand, representing the beautiful holidays in heartbreaking evidence of singularity. Constantin Preda poetry does not follow the rules, but is guided by its own rules, beautiful and durable structured.

All his books so far, from “My sister, nightfall” to “Karenina, Constantine’s Anna” urge to shiver, to dream, to high meditation.

The Polystart Foundation continues the donation series for the renovation of the Pediatrics Clinic from the “Filantropia” Hospital

Special gifts for special students

Near the Winter Holidays, the Polystart Foundation organized a fundraising to support the development of the children from the “High School for the Visually Impaired”. The obtained amount was used to buy school supplies and special toys, so necessary for these students, which received them with much enthusiasm and happiness.

We invest in Culture – the soul of our community!

Our involvement in cultural projects aims at developing local artistic manifestations. Following this direction, we participate as key partners at the most important cultural events in which we invested more than 50.000 Ron:

  • The International “Shakespeare” Festival , that took place at “Marin Sorescu” Theater in Craiova, has become a wonderful tradition for which we support its main
    objective, that is to provide  inter national and romanian royal entartainment, and also programing Theatrical Workshops with educative-formative character for students.
    • While many students barely manage to pass the national tests, the prestigious schools in Craiova boast exceptional students, which, besides their native intelligence, are constantly hard working to make performance. Mr. dr. Horia Parvanescu, in partnership with Polystart Foundation, considered the awards received by these children as inappropriate compared to their achievements, that’s why at the “Pledoarie pentru calitate” art exhibition, that took place at the Art Galleries of the Military Circle Craiova, the children who obtained the Ist , 2nd, 3rd   place at the National Olympics were awarded a diploma and amounts between 150 and 400 lei.
  • In 2011, we supported the 2nd Edition of the National Chemistry Contest “Petru Poni” which took place in Craiova, for the students of the technological classes. Craiova’s students whom participated at the 1st Edition of the Contest ranked our county on the first place. The students that won are from the  Auto Transportations School Group from Craiova:Mic Claudia Alexandra, Mic Oana Camelia and Cazan Mirela Vali.

 Together to support performance

Over time, The Polystart Foundation supported with almost 105.440 the athletic performances from Craiova, so that the athletes can have access to all the necesary conditions to prepare at a high level, so they can obtain higher results:

  •  At the “University” Sports Club Craiova, we support both the Fencing section and the Handball section.

The people are for us the most important resource and value

The Foundation has dedicated itself since its esyablishment with consistent sums, both solving or improving serious medical cases,and in partnership with other professionals to create optimal conditions for treatment or diagnostic:


  •  Together with Development and Psychotherapy through Action Association, the “Eternal Childhood Ball” was organized, the 2nd edition, where they were present on the scene name as Ducu bertzi and Mihai Nenita, Cristian Sanda, Oltenia Big Band, then the program was completed by a charity auction. The funds were used to purchase medical equipment for the children with neuromotor disabilities.

This case was sustained because all the hopes of the  people and children that need treatments and surgeries  are heading to this section.


Holyday gifts

The “Holidays for them too”, initiated by “Gazeta de Sud” Foundation, is at the end, a happy e

nding, because all of our gifts have now arrived, around holidays, at the children and elders from state institutions. As every year, we tried to alleviate their suffering, bring light and a smile on their faces. It is a tradition for the Foundation to become, around Christmas, a messenger from Santa. So, we loaded the bag with many gifts and we steped into the orphanages “Prichindel” and “Vis de copil” in Craiova, but we also got to see the elders from SPAMS. For the little ones from the “Prichindel” Center, our gift consisted in supplying furniture to a playground. This should be used by the kids for a long period of time, being not just a momentary joy. The playground will be arranged in spring, so that both the children from “Prichindel” and “Vis de copil” can use it. In addition to this gift, we also placed candies and goodies in Santa’s bag. We haven’t forgot neither the elders from SPAMS. We brought them pijamas, hygene items and even a fridge, which will come very useful. If they were forgotten by their loved ones, we didn’t forgot about them. We couldn’t bring the Christmas spirit closer to the souls of these children and elders if the Gazeta de Sud Foundation didn’t had partners like Real Hypermarket and Polystart Company. “We are glad that we have participated at “Holidays for them too” campaign with the Gazeta de Sud Foundation and, in this manner, we had the possibility to bring them joy near Christmas holidays to the little ones in foster homes, but also to the elders from institutions” declared Raluca Donovici, an official from Polystart Craiova.
“As every year, with Gazeta de Sud Foundation, we’ve been more generous and good, because we do care about the ones in need, and the “Holidays for them too” campaign gave us the opportunity to give.” declared the Real Hypermarket official.
In our fundraising campaign we’ve received support also from the pastry and restaurants chain El Greco, Razvan Tugui and all the Craiova people who left money in the special urns placed in Real Hypermarket.

Not very much, but at least their gesture meant a lot for the young family and gave the parents hope, that eventually , they will manage to get the money for the childs surgeries. “Then came a man who gave us one million lei and sweets for Denisa and a lady who brought us 50 euros, a toy and a bag of sweets. It meant a lot for us and we would like to thank them, but we don’t even know their names because they wished to remain anonymous.”said Maria Anastasiu, Denisa’s mother.

Not even at kindergarden she can’t cope, she can’t do anymore exercises, she can’t see how to color, she has headaches , she throws up and all this because of her eyes. We don’t how to thank you enough”, said the mother of the little girl.

We gave hope

April 2006

The Gazeta de Sud Foundation and Polystart Group help the flood victims in Dolj
The Hope Caravan stopped at each tent, each waggon, each shelter on the field. There were hands reaching, removing tears from cheeks, relieving – each after powers – deep sufferings. And still after powers, people started to hope…
Hundreds of packages reached Ghidici.
The flood victims hosted in Ghidici Dolj village received yesterday food, tents and sleeping bags from the Gazeta de Sud Foundation. Hundreds of packages were shared to the villagers who were left homeless after the Danube flood a week ago. A first trance of help were shared to the 470 people from Rast village, which were received by the residents of Ghidici in their homes.
Other packages reached the 150 villagers in Rast, who refused to step to far away from their destroyed households, choosing instead to improvise shelters on the fields, near the Danube’s waters. The number of villagers who were forced to live on the fields continues to increase from an hour to another, many of them not having nowhere to find a shelter. Many of them, still shocked from what has happened, had the power to wish a happy Easter to the ones who were helping.
