Unilin Group moves for SOS Children's Villages and sports its way to the moon!

Unilin Group colleagues raise more than 67,000 euros for SOS Children's Villages in Brazil!

Nearly 900 Unilin Group colleagues walked, ran, swam, cycled, ... and gathered money for SOS Children's Villages. The goal was to reach the moon: a distance of 384,400 km! In addition to sponsoring for charity, the Moving Lives campaign resulted in many warm contacts between Unilin Group colleagues.

"We often support charity projects, but the Moving Lives campaign for SOS Children's Villages was bigger and more international than ever! SOS Children's Villages was chosen because they are present in many countries where Unilin Group is active," says HR Director Katrijn Clement. "Moreover, it is an organization that colleagues across national borders can connect with. The aim of the campaign is to give children a better future. Unilin chose a project in the northeast of Brazil, a region heavily affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. We specifically chose a project in Caicó that supports families and promotes education.”

The Moving Lives action raised a total of just over 67,000 euros. The amount is handed over by the colleagues of Unilin do Brasil to the local SOS Children's Villages project.
