SOS Children's Villages is an independent, non-governmental international development organisation which has been working to meet the needs and protect the interests and rights of children since 1949.
Our relationship with SOS Children started in 2007. During this time, we have made valuable employee and corporate-level contributions to multiple locations across the charity's extensive footprint.
Over the first few years wesupported educational projects in Azerbaijan, Peru, Nigeria, the Philippines and Kazakhstan.
In addition, the company and its staff rallied to provide strong support for SOS Children's major emergency relief programme appeals, following the Haiti and Chile earthquakes, and the East African Famine, undertaking a series of fundraising events and providing generous corporate funding.
Our support helped fund material provisions including nutrition, clean water, medical aid and shelter as well as psychosocial aid - another integral part of these programmes, enabling children to come to terms with the trauma they have experienced.
We also funded a transformational ‘green’ project at SOS Children’s Village Gwagwalada in Nigeria. As a result, three of the houses became entirely self-sufficient through the installation of solar energy, water collection and purification systems. The project has helped decrease water usage as well as soil erosion from rain water. Generating electricity and saving water have both contributed to reducing Gwagwalada Children’s Village’s dependency on unreliable and costly mainstream supplies. The children and families are now benefiting - as well as the environment.
In 2013, employees collaborated to support the Syrian emergency relief appeal, assisting women and children forced from their homes by the conflict, through the provision of baby food, nappies and sanitary equipment to a growing number of mothers with infant children.
Amec Foster Wheeler’s generous commitment to SOS Children's global work amounts to almost half a million pounds, to date.What's happening in 2014? In 2014, we are raising money for a water project in the SOS village in Peru where children and families need a new water pipe installed. This will improve their quality of life and save money as they won’t have to fetch water or pay for its transportation. If we raise more funds than the costs of the water pipe, they will go into educational projects in SOS Children Villages in Azerbaijan and the Philippines.
We have a clear vision which encompasses our ambitions for the future. It describes our true potential and provides inspiration for us all in our daily work.
