Henkel brings joy to children and SOS mothers

Children in the SOS Children's Villages love spending their time at playgrounds, which keeps their SOS mothers busy as there is always a new batch of laundry to be done. To make their lives easier, Henkel once again donated a six-month supply of clea

 We were proud to welcome Marija Grđan and Lejla Nicević from Henkel to the SOS Children's Village Lekenik, where they visited us to hand over this valuable donation. Henkel has been making donations for the third year in a row, much to the delight of our SOS mothers, who work every day to make the childhood of children in our care as carefree as possible.

The donation was accepted by Mario Čović, director of SOS Children's Village Lekenik, who thanked our guests for this valuable donation on behalf of SOS Children's Village Croatia, while sharing with them all the news from our SOS Children's Villages.

After the formal ceremony, our guests took a tour of the SOS Children's Village Lekenik, visiting the SOS families and getting together with our kids in the Hermann Gmeiner Social Centre. It’s summertime and our children are taking a break from their school obligations, so they are free to enjoy a daily programme of fun activities provided for them in the Social Centre. Our guests and children sang karaoke, danced, drew pictures and played all kinds of games together, enjoying themselves immensely.

Saying goodbye is never easy and this time was no exception, but we are hoping there’ll be a new visit soon and we look forward to spending more time together. Until then, our children frolicking on the meadows and playgrounds without a care in the world will always remind us of our friends from Henkel.
