The event was filled with dinner, live music, art auction and raffle tickets. The event was a great success and over GEL 100,000 was raised.

70 years have passed since the victory over fascism

Peace is the virtue of civilization. War is its crime.

 – Viktor Hugo

 

Indeed, war is an event that freezes the time of history, and destroys everything made by humans.

 

Millions of people have died defending their countries and the dignity of people during World War II, and their names will forever live on. Among those names are 350,000 thousand Azerbaijanis and 300,000 Georgians. 

 

70 years have passed since that horrendous period. Day-by-day, those who have faced merciless, bloody and brutal days become fewer and fewer, and the years of pain and sorrow have remained forever in their memories.

 

Black Sea Terminal systematically cares for World War II veterans residing in the municipality of Khobi. The tradition continues this year too. During the event dedicated to 70th anniversary of World War II, our company representatives congratulated veterans on this significant day, wished them health, long life and informed them that as it has been in previous years, Black Sea Terminal will transfer monetary rewards to their bank accounts.

 

Each year, May 9th reminds us again that war and bloodshed, is evil, and makes us feel the value of peace.

 

*Note: Participant of World War II, Chief of the Committee of World War II Veterans residing in Khobi, Mr. Aleksandre Tskhadaia, contacted us and expressed his gratitude for the charity, noting thatalmost a century-old people are happy for the warm attitude and attention to war veterans systematically expressed by Black Sea Terminal LLC management.

 

Note of Thanks 
 

02.04.2015

With regard to corporate responsibility, Kulevi Oil Terminal always tries to support those in need, by providing financial support to various social projects and cultural events.

 

Most recently, Black Sea Terminal financed a charity initiative that made it possible for poor Azerbaijani families residing in Adjara to put food on the table during the Nowruz holiday celebration. Unfortunately there are people among us who belong to socially deprived parts of society, and charity is not measured by the amount donated to them, but it is vitally important to support them, and give hope of the future.

 

In the response to this charitable act, BST received a thank-you letter, and the M. F. Akhundov Georgian & Azerbaijanian Charity Society of Adjara has published an article of appreciation in the local newspaper:

 

“The panel of M. F. Akhundov Georgian & Azerbaijanian Charity Society of Adjara, in the name of all Azerbaijani families residing in Adjara, express its extreme gratitude to Black Sea Terminal LLC management for its constant care and attention to the consolidation and preservation of national rituals and traditions of the Azerbaijani people, and also for yearly charitable act during the holiday of Nowruz Bayrami to support poor families within the Azerbaijani community”.

 

Kulevi Oil Terminal has made it a habit to ease the suffering of those in need, and will continue these kinds of charity activities in the future by making a better life for socially vulnerable people.

 

Nowruz - Day of kindness 
 

20.03.2015

Nowruz, the holiday of the spring equinox, has been celebrated on March 21 for over 3,000 years.  Nowruz is marked by the coming of spring and the beginning of a new life; day and night equalization, the seasonal return of birds, warmer air, the onset of melting snow, and the sprouting of trees from the earth, which is revitalizing, and is symbolic of the renewal of life and the start of a new day. Nowruz is also looked at as the beginning of a new year in many countries.  

 


In 1926, the Soviet government prohibited the celebration of Nowruz. This holiday was restored in Azerbaijan in 1967, and declared a holiday of state importance. It is a very important holiday in many countries. On September 28, 2009, Nowruz was officially included on the list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity at the UNESCO summit. In 2010, the UN General Assembly recognized Nowruz as an international day. In 2011, Georgia joined the list of countries where Nowruz is celebrated as a national holiday. 

 

Black Sea Terminal LLC celebrates Nowruz this year in its usual manner. The traditions that are tightly linked to this day were introduced to the company’s multilingual team. There was a special dinner for employees as well. The company partook in a number of charity activities, including gift cards for about 100 beneficiaries, and food and sweets were provided to the Adjara Charity Society of Georgians and Azerbaijanis, with the aim of helping people in need.    

 

The entire Kulevi Oil Terminal team would like to wish all who celebrate Nowruz,  peace, happiness and success both in their private and professional lives.

On New Year’s Eve, the terminal helped the House of Virtue, which is located in the Khobi Municipality, organize holiday meals for socially vulnerable beneficiaries. Food products were donated to the canteen where up to 120 people have meals every day. Through this assistance, food supplies were ensured for more than a week.

 

The goal of this generous act was to brighten-up the lives of socially unprotected people residing in Khobi, and at the very least, temporarily make them forget their problems and illnesses. The beneficiaries were extremely grateful for this act of kindness, and expressed their gratitude by wishing the company success and prosperity.

 

New Year congratulations of Kulevi Secondary School also became a tradition for Black Sea Terminal. This year, terminal management presented students and the school’s administration with gifts. The students were happy and joyful.

The Day of persons with disabilities 
 

14.06.2013

 

Kulevi Oil Terminal supported the chess, draughts and backgammon tournament organized in Poti, Georgia by Union of Disabled persons on June 14 celebrated in Georgia as a Day of persons with disabilities.

 

In fact, it’s not a celebration day, but a possibility to remind us of problems which more than 150 thousand of Georgian citizens with disabilities have and that they’re full and equal members of our society, therefore it’s necessary to defend their rights and provide for them the same possibilities as we have.

 

This day aims to promote an understanding of persons with disabilities and encourage support for their dignity, rights and well-being. Evidence and experience shows that this minority often faces barriers to participation in all aspects of society. Kulevi Oil Terminal never misses an opportunity to support them within the possibilities of the company Social Plan and contribute to elimination of obstacles they face.

 

Black Sea Terminal LLC wishes all the persons with disabilities health, courage and success!
