SOS Children's village Ostuni
SKF Italy supports SOS Children’s Village in Ostuni
SKF Italy has initiated a partnership with SOS Children’s village stretching from 2014-2016. The SOS Villages’ mission is to support the children, their needs, their rights and their family, and starts from the principle that a healthy development is best done in a family friendly atmosphere. The support includes redevelopment of SOS Children’s village in Ostuni in the south of Italy, close to SKF’s facility in Bari.
"We are grateful for SKF Italy's support to SOS Children's Villages and for its engagement in the redevelopment of the Village in Ostuni. With this support we can continue to respond to increasingly urgent needs of the community, offering hospitality to children deprived of family care or at risk of losing it and helping fragile and vulnerable families. In these difficult times such partnerships are really valuable and fundamental for us. Thanks." says Alverio Camin, President of SOS Children's Villages in Italy.
