CEWE and SOS Children's Villages International

CEWE and SOS Children's Villages International

SOS Children's Villages worldwide and CEWE have been closely linked since 2013. Since then, the traditional Oldenburg company has donated more than 1.5 million euros for families and children in need. In addition to fixed projects, CEWE supports current emergency aid projects. In 2017, these included childcare in the famine in Somalia and humanitarian aid measures in the Diffa region in the border area between Niger and Nigeria. Corona relief projects were already funded in 2020. The cooperation with SOS Children's Villages has become a matter close to the heart for CEWE. In addition to financial support, the company is committed to donating in-kind and volunteering many of its employees at the respective locations in Germany and Europe. This resulted in particularly close relationships with the children's villages in Ghana, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland, Croatia, Norway, Austria, France, Germany and Belgium. CEWE received the first Excellence Award from SOS Children's Villages worldwide for this diverse and exceptional social commitment. CEWE sees its economic success in a very special way as an obligation to society. "Thanks to the long-term and unbureaucratic support, a lot of aid projects could be initiated and implemented", Petra Horn, CEO of SOS Children's Villages worldwide, acknowledges the sustainable contribution of the CEWE group of companies. In 2020 the company will again donate to institutions in Germany and selected international projects to promote creativity and talent among children and young people. On the left you can see the handover of the check at the Gala 2019 in Vienna, CEWE donated 10 cents to SOS Children's Villages worldwide for each photo submitted. The total was EUR 44,815.20 (corresponds to 448,152 photos).
