Ukraine Ambassador Wants to Support Korfball
Tuesday 6 November the Ambassador of Ukraine in The Netherlands, Vselovod Chentsov, is present during the korfball game NKC '51 - L'viv Predators in Nijverdal. The game is part of a learning trip in The Netherlands for this first Ukrainian adult squad with some internationals in their ranks. The Ambassador shows his interest for the korfball sport and invites the foundation to come and tell more in the embassy in The Hague.
Friday 9 November chairman Marc Stroo visits the Ambassador to tell more about korfball, the situation of korfball in Ukraine, the work of Korfball World Foundation and the international ambitions. This results in a follow up meeting in L'viv, Ukraine, on Friday 30 November with mister Chentsov, Marc Stroo of Korfball World Foundation and members of the Ukraine Korfball Federation. There is a possibility that a member of local politics in L'viv will join this meeting.
We are very happy and thankful for the interest for korfball from the Ukraine government and hope that this leads to a next breakthrough for korfball in this country.
