Chevrolet supports the children from SOS Children's Village Croatia

Chevrolet continues its partnership with the SOS Children's Village Croatia by donating HRK 75,000 as a proud sponsor of two SOS families. The donated amount will go towards covering the annual utility expenses of SOS houses in Lekenik and Ladimirevci.

The partnership with SOS Children's Villages began last year, on the occasion of Chevrolet’s centennial. Chevrolet decided to celebrate this momentous occasion with children and young people. Two of the hundred cars they donated to SOS Children's Villages around Europe went to SOS Children's Village Croatia. Family MPV Orlando found its home in SOS Children's Village Lekenik, while the city car Chevrolet Aveo is used by the staff of the SOS Children's Village Croatia National Office.


“SOS Children's Village is a remarkable organization that provides genuine support and help to children without parents and adequate parental care. We in Chevrolet believe that every day offers a new opportunity to do something extraordinary, and we are proud of continuing our partnership through sponsoring two SOS families. Joy, warmth, laughter are part of daily life in SOS Villages, which is why we enjoy these gatherings with our SOS friends”, said Jernej Kolbl, director of Chevrolet for Croatia, Slovenia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.


Chevrolet’s network of dealerships is also involved in providing support to SOS Children's Village Croatia. All Chevrolet dealerships offer leaflets with information on how to help children who live in the SOS, and Chevrolet's authorized dealer PSC Osijek donated the additional HRK 10,000 to the SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci.


“SOS Children's Village Croatia boasts a plethora of projects and activities that were always aimed at providing children with love, safe home and education. The business operations of the Children's Village depend on the donations made by the Village friends, and we are extremely proud to be able to call a company like Chevrolet a friend of ours”, said Višnja Tuškan Krupić, National Director of SOS Children's Village Croatia.
