Children need our protection and care –
even in these exceptional times!
secureguard Christmas campaign at SOS Children’s Village Rechberg

Dear business partners, ladies and gentlemen,

A turbulent, eventful and, for most of us, a very unusual year is coming to a close. Yet even in these exceptional times, one thing remains absolutely true: children need our protection and care!

Therefore, we have once again decided to forego sending Christmas presents this year and instead to donate this amount. As with last year, we have chosen the SOS Children’s Village in Rechberg/Upper Austria.
SOS Children’s Villages have existed not only in Austria but all over the world for over 70 years. The idea originates from an Austrian from Tyrol, Hermann Gmeiner, who founded the first children’s village after the Second World War in 1949. Since then, this wonderful idea has gained widespread recognition and has become a worldwide organisation. Over the years, it has established more than 550 SOS Children’s Villages in 135 countries around the world and is responsible for approximately 1500 other projects, such as kindergartens, schools as well as social and medical centres.

This year has also been a special challenge for the children’s village in Rechberg. One that it has handled and continues handle very well! For example, during the first lockdown, online teaching became a new challenge that had to be addressed with equally new strategies. Outside the study times for distance learning, there was still plenty of free time in the afternoon for playing and outdoor sports!

Mag. Michaela Rimser (Private Sponsors & Corporate Partners SOS Children’s Villages) and Mr. Reinhold Kapusta (Pedagogical Director SOS Children’s Village Rechberg) welcomed us very warmly outside and with warm tea to combat the freezing outdoor temperatures. Currently, there is a strict ban on external guests entering the house due to the Corona pandemic. During this visit, our Managing Director, Helmut Otto, handed over the donation cheque along with “secureguard Honey” from the company’s own bee project. Our company is particularly pleased to be able to make a modest contribution and we are convinced that our donation is in the best hands at the SOS Children’s Village in Rechberg!

We wish you, your employees and your families a merry, cosy and peaceful Christmas, every success and joy in the New Year and above all: the best health!
