    Spurred by his achievements in promoting basketball and setting up a highly successful IT company, Gabriel Marin was greatly enthused by the game of cricket when he was introduced to it by his son who was studying in England some years ago.

    Gabriel Marin’s motto if he were to coin one, is “there is no room for second place” and he builds businesses and enterprises based on a platform of performance, honesty and non compromise – all attributes he says that can be found in abundance in the game of cricket.

    Given the smattering of clubs and cricket enthusiasts developing around Romania, it was felt that an over all body that would manage and develop the game of cricket was needed and to take cricket in Romania into the international arena in the decade ahead.

    In a collective agreement with the cricket enthusiast in Romania, it was agreed to set up Consiliul Roman de Cricket – or ‘Cricket Romania’ in June 2009 under Marin’s stewardship. The foundation has a charitable purpose which clearly differentiate it from the company's commercial operations.

    The mail goal is to develop, stimulate, organize and manage this sport nationwide. Moreover, through its active involvement, Omnilogic wants to ensure a sustainable development of cricket with and for Romanians.


    What is the activity of Consiliul Roman de Cricket?

    Steeped in tradition and with a strong emphasis on fair play, correctness and sportsmanship, cricket is a game which is fun and for everyone. It is firmly guided by the Spirit of the Game, a code of behaviour that sits alongside the game’s Laws. With such positive attributes attached to the game, Cricket Romania is introducing Kwik Cricket, a simple and highly enjoyable form of the game, into 100 schools over the next 3 years to produce the future Romanian players or the game. In time, there will be competitions including zonal, regional and national championships.

    Partner: The Central University Emergency Military Hospital

    Beneficiary: doctors and patients of The Central University Emergency Military Hospital

    Location: Bucharest

    Period: 2010


    One of the most important program in health area in 2010 is the generous cash donation to the Surgical Department of the Central University Emergency Military Hospital to purchase the instruments for laparoscopic surgery.


    In world practice, laparoscopic surgery had rapidly become popular and has seen widespread development in the last decade. This modern method of minimally invasive surgical treatment, potentially addresses to all patients (regardless of age and sex) requiring a surgery that can be performed using this technique. The benefits offered by minimally invasive surgical treatments compared with those of classical treatments was the reason which prompted program development.


    The new toolkit will provide major benefits to both physicians and patients of the Surgical Department of the Central University Emergency Military Hospital regarding the surgery performance act, and the quality of life through the fast rehabilitation and social reintegration after the surgery. Laparoscopic surgeries are contraindicated only to patients in critical condition, but also in the absence of a minimum of instruments or of insufficient surgical experience.

    Minimally invasive surgical treatments have the same efficiency as conventional cuts, but more benefits for the patient and doctor, and ultimately for hospital economy.


    " The Toolkit will provide major benefits to both physicians and patients regarding the surgery performance act, and the quality of life through the fast rehabilitation and social reintegration after the surgery" said chief of Surgery I, Col. Dr. Artenie Teodor.


    " I think is a natural gesture to be receptive to everything that Health means and to the problems that medical world is facing today. Beyond the serious deficiencies faced by the Romanian Health System, investments in health-care are a civilized and widespread form of social responsibility. We have been impressed by the power and great desire of the doctors from "Dr. Carol Davila" Central Military Hospital to improve the quality and safety of the medical act." said Mr. Gabriel Marin, Managing Director Omnilogic.
