ASSISTANCE FOR CHILDREN’S VILLAGE IN KRALJEVO
Children without parental care from the SOS Children’s Village in Kraljevo have received from Eurobank all the necessary school kits and equipment for a successful start of the school year. This is a result of a humanitarian volunteer campaign of the Bank employees, where RSD210,000 was raised. School kits include backpacks, pen cases and complete school writing and drawing stationery for all 78 children of different age in the Village.
The donation has been granted to the Director of the SOS Children’s Village, Borka Lukić, by Željka Ćirić Jakovljević, Head of Marketing and Corporate Communications in Eurobank.
“We believe that the SOS Children’s Village is an exceptional example of care for children who need assistance and I am glad that we have an opportunity to provide these children with an additional motive for learning with this donation of school kits. I am proud as this a result of engagement of all Eurobank employees, who recognise the significance of good teamwork for a humanitarian cause,” said Željka Ćirić Jakovljević upon a visit to the Children’s Village.
SOS Children Villages represent a unique concept of care for children without parental care, providing children with an opportunity to grow up in parental surroundings, in SOS foster families.
“In these 12 years of its existence, the SOS Children’s Village has been a home of more than one hundred children. Many of them have become independent young adults and I am glad that we have managed to prepare them for life. We would not be able to do it without support of companies such as Eurobank, which provide the children with a motive to learn, get educated and take first professional steps after leaving the Children’s Village,” noted Borka Lukić, Director of this institution.
This humanitarian campaign is a part of the Eurobank – “Year of Good Deeds” project, where each month is reserved for at least one good deed of specific assistance to institutions of public importance, vulnerable and marginalised social groups and individuals who need support for achieving their objectives and equality with other members of the community where they live.
