Mamed Khalidov Helps Asylum Seekers

Mamed Khalidov Helps Asylum Seekers

Well-known Chechen athlete, Mamed Khalidov is helping fellow countrymen who are searching for asylum in Poland.

According to a publication on the Polish website, Onet.pl, a new project related to Chechen asylum seeking children has started in Warsaw, the capital of Poland. The Project is financed by the European Refugee Fund and Polish state budgets. The project aims to integrate Chechen children into Polish society, developing their positive behavior, passions and interests. The project uses sports as a tool for integration.

Mamed Khalidov, who has recently obtained Polish citizenship, is their teacher, but he is more than a teacher, he is their role-model. Mamed Khalidov is a positive man and he was accepted as a sport star by the Polish people. Thus, his situation inspires young Chechens and lets them know that they may have a successful future in Poland.

Around 30 Chechen children attend Mamed and other teacher’s martial arts classes. The children are divided into two teams under the management of the “Flex Gym” sport club in Bródno, Warsaw.

We, Waynakh Online, hope that the project will achieve its goals, and maybe Poland will have new Mamed Khalidovs.

Thank you Mamed, you are a true son of the Chechen nation! Deal rez xiyla!
