This sum, generated in part by a baking competition, will be allocated to an important project, set up by SOS Villages d’Enfants Monde in Ethiopia and its local partner, to meet the pressing health and nutrition needs of vulnerable people affected by catastrophic drought in the context of major crises.

A meeting brought together in the premises of the non-profit organisation in Luxembourg, Florence Sorce, Marketing and Communication Manager of Banque Havilland SA, Sophie Glesener, Director, and Anne Schweizer, Partnerships Manager of SOS Villages d’Enfants Monde.

Banque Havilland SA is pleased to have been committed to protecting vulnerable children around the world for thirteen years and to have been able to raise funds, thanks to its second participation in Giving Tuesday, for an essential project aimed at young children and women in Ethiopia. We will continue our commitment alongside SOS Villages d’Enfants Monde, especially in the year 2024 when the association is celebrating its 50th anniversary,” underlined Florence Sorce. For their part, Sophie Glesener and Anne Schweizer thanked her warmly while discussing recent projects, especially the project benefiting from the donation.

Managed by SOS Children’s Villages in Ethiopia and its partner in the Oromia region, this project focuses on essential services to meet the urgent health and nutrition needs of the most vulnerable groups affected by drought, particularly young children and women, and to ensure livelihood support to households. It is also about strengthening the capacities of health services to control the spread of epidemics and reduce the high prevalence of malnutrition. Finally, the project aims to reduce the violence to which displaced women in the region are exposed, SOS Villages d’Enfants Monde noted.
