Weinig donates 13,000 euros to SOS-Kinderdorf e.V.02/05/2018
In keeping with previous years, the personnel laid a solid foundation through various fundraising activities. The company itself added further funds, producing a proud total of 13,000 euros. The donation is close to the heart of CEO Wolfgang Pöschl, with social engagement being a cornerstone of his corporate philosophy. He considers the long-standing relationship between the market leader for machines and systems for solid wood processing and SOS-Kinderdorf e.V. a high priority: “Children suffer most from the shortcomings of our world and particularly need us.”
Weinig is predominantly involved in Abomey-Calavi (Benin) and Kavre (Nepal). At both SOS facilities, the company and its personnel support numerous children in need on their challenging journeys through life. The funds from the most recent donation will contribute towards securing a future for these children. In the past, Weinig has repeatedly supported on-site activities of SOS-Kinderdorf e.V. in crisis situations, such as the terrible earthquake in Nepal in 2015 or the war in Syria.
SOS-Kinderdorf e.V. operates almost 600 institutions worldwide, providing a loving home to children with uncertain futures, where they are cared for by their SOS mothers together with their siblings. Special youth and family strengthening programs ensure that they will have access to education.
