IOF paves way to support Ukrainian orienteering

Based on communication with the Ukrainian Orienteering Federation, the IOF has decided to support Ukrainian Orienteering in several ways.

The message from the Ukrainian federation was, among other things, that it wanted to continue to participate in international competitions and championships but that it needed financial support for this.

Therefore, the OIF has decided to focus its support on:

  1. Raising funds to allow athletes and coaches of the Ukrainian team to participate in international competitions and training. * It is possible for federations and individuals to donate via the IOF donation site (by credit card and Paypal.) **
  2. Administrative support from the IOF office related to the planning and participation in international competitions and training. This will be done in close collaboration with the member federations.
  3. Using the IOF Volunteers platform to map places of safety for refugees. The IOF Global Development Commission will act as an intermediary when refugees seek places of safety.

In a letter sent today to all IOF Member Federations, IOF President Leho Haldna urged federations to contribute as generously as possible and to spread information on the possibility of donating. money to Team Ukraine and the use of the volunteer platform.

* Means IOF events like World Games, WOC, WC, JWOC, EYOC and official training camps prior to championships. The IOF manages this in direct contact with the Ukrainian Federation / Ukrainian National Team
