CEWE and SOS Children's Villages International

Since 2013, SOS Children's Villages International and CEWE have been closely associated in a partnership. During that time, the long-established CEWE company, based in Oldenburg, Germany, has donated more than a million euros for families and children in need. Alongside long-term projects, CEWE provides support to current emergency aid projects as well. In 2017, the latter included the care of children during the famine in Somalia and humanitarian aid measures in the Diffa region in the borderland between Niger and Nigeria. For CEWE, cooperation with SOS has evolved into a matter that is near to our heart. Along with providing financial support, the company is involved with commodity donations and the volunteer work of many of its employees at its respective locations in Germany and Europe. Thus, especially close relationships have developed with villages associated with this organisation in Ghana, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland, Austria, France, Germany and Belgium. SOS Children's Villages International honoured CEWE for this multifaceted and extraordinary social involvement with its first Excellence Award. "CEWE views its business success as an obligation to society in a very unique way. Thanks to their long-term support without red tape, we have been able to initiate and successfully implement a large number of aid projects," says Sabine Fuchs, Managing Director of SOS Children's Village Global Partner, in recognition of the sustainable contribution to the common good by the CEWE group. In 2018, the company is again donating a sum of 250,000 euros to facilities in Germany and for selected international projects that provide support to children and families in need.
