Orphaned children from ethnic groups around Laos seek help from SOS Children’s Villages in search of a better life, where disadvantaged children are well taken care of and given an education.
Karcher cleaning equipment is given to staff at the SOS Children’s Village Vientiane.
SOS welcomes any support from interested sponsors and donors and encourages as many people as possible to assist in the upkeep and development of Children’s Villages.
Director of SOS Children’s Village Vientiane, Mr Southana Sisoulath said generous assistance from members of the public and businesses is most welcome and will be used to help build families for children in need. This support helps children to shape their futures and share in the development of their communities.
“We try to ensure that the basic rights of children are adhered to by providing them with the means to develop into productive citizens,” Mr Southana said.
The Karcher cleaning equipment company has donated equipment worth more than 735,824 Thai baht (about 478 million kip) to staff at the SOS Children’s Village Vientiane.
The CEO of Smartklin Company Limited, Mr Phonesavanh Xaypanya, handed over the cleaning equipment to the Director of the SOS Children’s Village Vientiane, Mr Southana Sisoulath.
