We are sorry for inconveniences.
Right now the site is under reconstruction.
NC “KazMunayGas” JSC always places high emphasis on support of gifted children, as well as handicapped children and orphans left without parental care.
Every year over 1700 children aged from 7 to 14 from Atyrau and Mangystau oblasts have a rest at the "Sunkar” health complex (situated in Zerenda region, Akmola oblast). Their parents work in the production units of KMG Group, including "Atyrau refinery LLP", production branches “Embamunaygas" and “Ozenmunaygas" of “KazMunayGas Exploration Production” JSC. In order to bring children to the camp, special charter flights are organized for them on Aktau-Atyrau-Astana route.
During the summer season all the necessary facilities are provided for the children: comfortable accommodations, balanced four meals daily, medical supervision all day long, educational and entertainment activities.
The main program purpose of the children’s staying at the health complex is promotion of health through engaging in sports and outdoor activities, experiencing and exploring the environment. Educators do a great educational work for the development of children's sense of patriotism, love to the country, respect of the older generation.
«KazMunayGas» National Company held Young Pavement Artists Contest in Astana within the framework of celebrations dedicated to the Child Protection Day. Over 30 children took part in the contest.
Children’s imagination is boundless, and the goal of the contest is to learn to see the world through the children’s eyes, rather than finding out the best artist. The young artists expressed themselves and their vivid fantasies by crayons; and an hour later the pavement was covered with rainbow colours inviting to admire various fantastic pictures.
When the contest was over, the organizers presented all the participants with souvenirs.
As a tradition, staff of National company KazMunaiGaz and of its subsidiary companies – KazMunaiGaz Exploration Production, KazTransOil, KazTransGaz, KazMunaiGaz – refinery and marketing, Intergaz Central Asia, OOC KazMunaiTeniz and other subsidiary companies celebrated together the spring festival “Nauryz meiramy”.
This festival has brought together all ages and nationalities. Mature aksakals in kazakh chapans, grannies with high kimesheks, surrounded by many grandchildren, young mothers with kids were here. Especially the kids were happy by festival – this is the place where they may find so many friends, run and play!
These days Nauryz meiramy has actually become nationwide spring festival of labour and unity. Nowadays this holiday is equally precious for residents of Kazakhstan – Kazakhs, Ukrainians, Russians, Polishes, Germans, Koreans and other representatives of 130 nationalities of the country.
In the center of all this celebration – real Kazakh aul. Hosts of decorated yurts, as it is suitable for this day, welcomingly invite everyone who wishes to taste nauryz-kozhe, besbarmak and, just out of kazan, baursaks.
Kazakhs from the earliest times were famous for their hospitality for a reason, and all guests of the festival could make it sure more than once.
Though, participants of the competition – “Georgians” jokingly tried to find out: “Which nation is the most hospitable?!”
However, no one argued, and just decided to compare: Tbilisi – Astana, Aragva – Ishim, Kutaisi – Kurgaldzhino, Borjomi – Saryagash. Vakhtang Kikabidze and our favourite tenor Alibek Dnishev may be considered equally fine artists. And our folk dance kamazhai can compete with Georgian lezghinka. This was the way of contest!
Thanks to sparkling beats and humour NC KMG team, which represented Georgia, took the first place for its performance. The second place was occupied by team named “Intergaz Central Asia”. They showcased the culture and traditions of Uzbek people. And OOC KazMunaiTeniz team – “Koreans” got the third place. Judges awarded Grand Prix and Trophy of the Commonwealth of Nations to “Intergaz Central Asia” team.
- It is no coincidence that the subject of people’s friendship was taken for the basis of holding our traditional holiday contest, representatives of different nationalities work in our company indeed, and we may be proud of that we built up the corporate spirit in KazMunaiGaz company, which allows each member to feel him/herself as a part of a big friendly family, - says General Manager for business support Serikbek Yelshibekov.
“Nauryz merekesin kuttyktau” the most beautiful yurt was chosen here in the competition. Special judges appraised not only interior decoration and national costumes, but also the knowledge of staff in folk customs and ceremonies, such as betashar, bata beru, tusau keser and etc.
Sport competitions are the necessary attribute of Nauryz. Since ancient times various competitions were held on this day, in which dzhigits used to demonstrate their daring and bravery. Guests and participants of the festival took a great interest in a family competition.
All participants of contest performance were cheered with the prizes. But the top gift, according to the majority, consisting of excellent mood and memorable impressions, was given by the big and united group of KMG to itself!
