“Making sure every child belongs to a family and grows up with love, respect and security” – this is the purpose of SOS Children’s Villages. In 2008, Dr. Oetker had entered into a long-term partnership with the SOS Children’s Villages, the world's largest non-governmental organization focused on supporting children without parental care and families at risk.
SOS Children’s Villages have been supporting the world’s most vulnerable children and families for more than 60 years, so that they can flourish and reach their full potential. When a child is orphaned or abandoned, they provide them with a permanent family home and quality education and healthcare.
“As part of our partnership with SOS Children's Villages, we support the organization in its efforts to ensure that children and young people can grow up in a family – loved, respected, encouraged and protected. As the great-grandson of the company's founder, I am particularly pleased about this consistency and commitment over so many years to this important goal of supporting children on their way, because social commitment has always been one of our corporate values.”
– Rudolf Louis Schweizer, Chairman of the Advisory Board of the Dr. August Oetker KG
