INA Oil Company hands a Christmas donation to SOS Children's Village Croatia

In addition to supporting various projects of the association SOS Children's Village Croatia throughout the year, INA Oil Company today handed over a donation in the amount of HRK 100.000 to the Association. The donation will go towards covering the utility bills of one SOS family and one SOS Youth Facility in the coming year.

Mr. Mario Čović, director of SOS Children's Village Lekenik, accepted the donation from Nikolina Bradić Belobrajdić, director of INA’s Marketing Communication Service. “I am happy we can mark our extremely successful cooperation with another donation in this holiday season. This time of the year, the time of gift-giving, has inspired us to put a new smile on the faces of our dear little friends from the SOS Children's Village, and to make their holidays even better”, said Nikolina Bradić Belobrajdić in her comment.
In his thanks for the donation, Mario Čović said: “On behalf of our children and co-workers, I thank our friends and partners from INA for believing in us, supporting us and helping us in our work, and thus contributing, actively and invaluably, to the overall care that children and youth receive in our SOS Children's Village Lekenik.”
After handing over the donation, INA presented their Christmas and New Year’s print and TV ad campaign, made in cooperation with SOS Children's Village Croatia, and featuring drawings made by the children from SOS Children's Village Croatia.
Association SOS Children's Village Croatia has been active since 1992 as a full member of SOS Kinderdorf International, the largest global non-government child and youth care organization. Through its SOS Children's Villages Lekenik and Ladimirevci, and SOS Youth Facilities in Osijek, Velika Gorica and Zagreb, SOS Children's Village Croatia provides care for 250 children without parents or adequate parental care.
As the Christmas season approaches, this donation celebrates the successful partnership between INA and SOS Children's Village Croatia, which has already resulted in several donations earlier this year. INA ensured that 120 children from SOS Children's Villages Ladimirevci and Lekenik were able to spend their summer vacations in Rogoznica. In autumn, INA used the motto Happy and Articulate in the New School Year to make sure our children would have the support of speech therapist and special education teacher throughout the school year. As if that was not enough, INA Oil Company and its daughter company Maziva-Zagreb ran a joint campaign between May 1 and September 30, donating 20 lipas our of every liter of summer INA Autoglas sold at INA’s gas stations to SOS Children's Village Croatia. Today’s donation by INA serves to put a spotlight on important work that SOS Children's Village Croatia does, and to encourage other companies to help SOS in its activities.
