Ladimirevci woke up this morning looking fresh and new! It’s all thanks to the hard work of our Kaufland volunteers

Kaufland Hrvatska showed its loyalty once again by donating HRK 20.000 to help furnish the SOS Quince House. On top of that, 40 employees of the Kaufland supermarket chain volunteered their services and did 2 days of exterior and interior work in SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci.

 The excessive heat in July did nothing to deter a group of generous people from their plan to make the life of children in the care of SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci more comfortable. Kaufland, a long-time partner of SOS Children's Village Croatia, joined the

Be Proud of Yourself campaign that celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Association.

With its valuable donation of HRK 20.000, Kaufland helped to furnish the SOS Quince House and renovate the yards in all 16 houses in the SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci. An impressive group of 40 hard-working volunteers spent two days repainting fences and assembling furniture right here in the Village. The children and their SOS mothers were delighted, while Kaufland employees who volunteered beamed with pride and joy.

“Our employees are so happy to have been given a chance to do some good. They stepped out of the confines of their own ‘four walls’ and helped renovate the living space of SOS children: they repainted fences, assembled desks – nothing was too difficult for them. We are proud to have employees with such highly developed social awareness. We are proud of ourselves and of our employees”, said Marija Franić, the Kaufland spokesperson.

About the Be Proud of Yourself campaign

Be proud of yourself… and be proud of your room, because having a room is an important part of everyone's childhood. It does not matter if you had sole possession of your room or shared it with your brother and sister, if it is still there or accessible only in your memories – what matters is how that space defined you as a person. For the past 25 years, those four walls have been the foundation of life for the hundreds of children in the SOS Children's Villages.
The Be Proud of Yourself Campaign was launched in honour of the 25th anniversary of SOS Children's Village Croatia. Appearing as the faces of the campaign are our young, accomplished and independent adults who grew up in the rooms within SOS Children's Villages. They represent all the effort, hard work and pride of our Association throughout the years and as that selfless work continues, now you can join us as well.

Make a donation by calling the SOS Children's Village Croatia charity helpline 060 90 55 and be proud of yourself!
