Sung Rim Europe becomes sponsor of SOS children's village Guinea-Bissau

On the occasion of the forthcoming Christmas the management of Sung Rim Europe GmbH has decided to take over a sponsorship plus for a SOS children's village. The consideration for such a step already matured since some time and now the idea to support destitute children not only to the yule tide (and instead of Christmas presents for our esteemed customers), but constantly and all year round continuously was transferred to reality. Help is required, finally, not only temporarily, but permanently. We come true with thus a heart's desire and hope that also you - worth customers, friends and business partners - agree to us in this concern.

The choice on the village in Guinea-Bissau fell for various reasons:
  • The country belongs to the poorest countries of the world. About 2/3 of the population live below the poverty border, every 5th child is malnourished
  • The life expectancy lies with 49 years
  • Approx. half of all children of 5-14 years must do child employment.
  • 160 of 1000 children die before they have reached the 5th year.
  • Approx. 110,000 children (with a whole population of 1.6 millions!) have lost one or both parents by AIDS / HIV. Malaria, tuberculosis and cholera spread out.
  • The village offers security and protection to 120 children and prevents them from fall in the hands of human traders.
  • In particular girls and young women are often suffering from violence and compulsive marriages are supported.
The web pages of the children's villages SOS are available for further information. We would be pleased and encourage our business partners, friends and customers to follow our example.

On this way we thank all of you for the trust and the successful cooperation in the year 2014.
We wish you and your families a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year!
