Celebrating SOS Anniversary

October marks the first anniversary of Appco Group Poland’s partnership with SOS Children’s Villages and what better way to mark the event than at thier annual Convention in the capital of Warsaw.

From humble beginnings with a team of five fundraisers, Appco have worked with SOS to create a team of seventy dedicated professionals across four cities.

Speaking passionately at the Convention was SOS Director of Fundraising, Aleksandra Granada, who welcomed Appco as “friends of SOS Children’s Villages”, continuing, “After only a year, thanks to the help of the Appco Group, we have been able to receive thousands of złoty in donations. The funds raised so far cover the costs of food for 5,000 orphaned and abandoned children who have found a safe home in the SOS Children's Villages. Our goals are to raise enough funds by the end of the year to allow us to cover the costs of maintaining the entire village in Biłgoraj, Poland, over many years, helping families and many more children. It's an ambitious plan but working with such vibrant, hard working and well-motivated Fundraisers, I'm sure we can achieve it!”

Ms Granada finished her poignant speech by thanking everyone involved with the campaign;

“Thank you to all of you who are involved in the SOS project with the Appco Group, especially you, the Fundraisers, who on our behalf, ask people of good will to support children in need. In carrying out this work our cooperation not only supports SOS parents in the difficult task of raising children who have not had the best start in life, but you continue to be excellent ambassadors of our organisation”

Appco Group Polska would like to thank Aleksandra Granada for attending the event and look forward to contributing to the goals of the campaign over the course of our second year in partnership.
