We would like to thank you all for a great cooperation during a very different 2020 and send our hopes for a less turbulent 2021. Instead of sending traditional Christmas gifts to our partners, we have decided to donate €7500 to charity. The employees at Unifaun/Transsmart voted for three different organisations which resulted in a donation of:
€ 3075 to Tim Bergling foundation (Avicii)
€ 2700 to VI-skogen
€ 1725 to Missing Children
The Tim Bergling foundation (Avicii) advocates for the recognition of suicide as a global health emergency. They support science-based organizations engaged in preventative actions against mental illness and suicide, particularly among young people. Additionally the foundation will support aid work in areas where Tim had a passion, such as climate change, global hunger and preservation of wildlife and endangered species.
VI-skogen is a Swedish aid organization that plants trees and places bee-hives in Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda and Tanzania. Four countries that are hit hard by deforestation and that for many years have lived with its devastating effects on both people and nature. Their vision is: “A sustainable environment that enables women and men living in poverty to improve their lives”.
Missing Children Europe is the European Federation for Missing and Sexually Exploited Children. Each year, well over 250 000 children slip through child protection systems in Europe. Runaways, parental abductions and children who go missing in the context of migration. “We believe that all children should be able to rely on effective and holistic systems of child protection.”
We wish you happy holidays and a sparkling new year!
