Spring brings fresh donations from KeepCalling as the company decided to enlist the cause of the international foundation SOS Children’s Villages. KeepCalling donated food, school supplies, and cleaning products worth $1000 to one of the Romanian branches of this NGO, located in Cisnadie, Sibiu.
SOS Children’s Villages Cisnadie hosts 70 children in 12 houses. The children are aged between 2 and 15. 55 of them are students and need school supplies. That’s why KeepCalling bought them notebooks, watercolors, brushes, and plasticine. With the rest of the money, KeepCalling’s Charity Committee purchased soap, toothbrushes and toothpaste, flour, rice, pasta, sugar, oil, waffles, bananas, oranges and other tinned products.
SOS Children’s Villages intends to offer a loving family to any child in difficulty. That’s why one of the main goals of the organization is to help children by integrating them in families. An SOS family is made up of an SOS mother who takes care of 5 or even 6 children. Children living in an SOS home are either orphans or belong to families that can’t take proper care of them.
SOS Children’s Villages Cisnadie has been functioning since 1993 and has educated over 130 children. Some of them now have families of their own and are fully integrated into society. The village in Cisnadie is made up of 12 homes and 6 other buildings managing the activity of the SOS families.
