Wilh. Wilhelmsen group continues cooperation with SOS Children's Villages 

21.12.2011 (WW )
(Lysaker, 21.12.2011) We are pleased to announce that we have renewed our sponsorship agreement with SOS Children’s Villages for another period.

Bataan-girlsThe cooperation with SOS Children’s Villages started in January 2009 when we chose to become main sponsor of SOS in Norway and to direct our support to a children’s village at Bataan, Philippines.

We chose to continue to support SOS Children’s Villages because we have great respect for the job they are doing for neglected children worldwide. Another reason is that we want to contribute to local societies where we have activities. Through the cooperation with SOS Children’s Villages we are able to work on a long-term basis and contribute to make life better for many children.

Stable and long-term care is central for SOS Children’s Villages. This is a good match to our corporate culture which is based on values and sustainability.

SOS Children’s Villages is the world’s largest humanitarian organisation for orphaned and neglected children. They run more than 470 villages in 132 countries. The organisation gives the children in the villages a safe home and helps them shape their own future. In addition they prevent children being left alone by supporting exposed families as well as contributing to the development of local communities. The organisation is political and religiously neutral, and work independent of nationality, culture and religion.
