26.06.2012 (WW )
The Wilh. Wilhelmsen group (WW) continue as one of the principal sponsors of SOS Children’s Villages in Norway until 2014 under an agreement signed today.

WW’s cooperation with SOS Children's Villages in Norway started in 2009 supporting the establishment of a children’s village in the Philippines. Under the new agreement, our support will go to programmes in India and the Philippines.

 “We want to contribute to local societies where we have activities. Through 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,” says brand manager Bjørg Ekornrud in the corporate communications department.

“We see that our support not only secures a better future for the individual child but also contributes to development of the society the children live in.”

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