On June 1, 2022, on World Children’s Day, Polish gaming studio FPS Center, with the support of AMD, Actina, WePlay Holding, SENET, MyFace, and InstaLing, is launching the non-profit project Day Center by AMD. The project aims to help Ukrainian people in Poland, especially kids and their moms. The Day Center by AMD project will be implemented under the patronage of the Ukrainian Embassy in Poland and the Crisis Coordination Center at the Embassy of Ukraine in Poland.
Day Center by AMD opens on June 1, 2022, and will welcome all Ukrainians free of charge until June 30, 2022, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day. The center is located in Warsaw, at the FPS gaming studio (Galeria Ursynow/I floor, 36 Al. KEN). Visitors will have free access to computer stations and games and the support of a Ukrainian-speaking attendant (native speaker). Thanks to project partners from SENET, all computers are equipped with quality free software for the duration of the project. Youngsters are welcome to participate in esports activities and enjoy fruit, water, soft drinks, etc.
Project organizers hope to facilitate the forced exile from home for the Ukrainians and offer them a place to socialize and unwind.
“By providing our computer studio, we wanted to help our Ukrainian sisters and brothers in the challenges they face after coming to Poland. In the FPS Center, they will find convenient conditions to find an apartment, a new job, learn Polish, and solve official matters with support in their native language. Esports activities for young people organized as part of the campaign will also be a great opportunity for integration and rest in this difficult time. It would not have been possible without the support of the esports community and numerous partners who were actively involved in organizing the campaign and helping to reach people looking for this form of support. We are glad that our studio and the best computer equipment in Poland will be a real help for our guests,” said Marcin Czeczot, FPS Center founder.
“We do hope Ukrainian youth will feel a bit better after visiting this center and spending time with people who are in the same situation as them. Common interests unite people, just like computer games. Therefore, we took up the initiative with great enthusiasm, since lots of Ukrainian children are fond of esports. It’s great that now, they have a place in Poland where they can mingle with like-minded people and get to know the community while their parents have a fantastic opportunity to spend time with their kids and find out more about their hobbies.
Sure, nothing feels like home except home. But such projects as the Day Center by AMD help a lot,” shared Alena Dalskaya-Latosiewicz, chief communications officer at WePlay Holding and project lead from the WePlay Holding side.
During a whole month, guests of the Day Center by AMD will be able to socialize with their counterparts, learn the Polish language with InstaLing, and enjoy the welcoming atmosphere and various activities. Since one of the center’s main focus areas is gaming, which is widely popular among Ukrainian youth, everyone will have the opportunity to compete in FIFA22, Dota 2, Roblox, League of Legends, Asseto Corsa, and many other titles.
