Brussels, Belgium – Austria, 1949; Hermann Gmeiner was moved by the sights he endured as a result of World War II. As a child welfare worker in post war Europe, he experienced first-hand the devastation in post war Europe and was determined to provide support and guidance for thousands of orphaned children. His charity, SOS Children, has since grown at a steady pace, now active in 134 countries, providing aid, shelter and hope to young children worldwide, including Vietnam, home of Jonckers Centre of Excellence. According to Jonckers spokesperson Richard Renda, SOS Children’s Village Vietnam a perfect fit for the translation company and an opportunity we could not and did not refuse to work with them.
“Working with clients all over the world, we’ve come in contact with all walks of life. The tragedies facing these children and parents is far removed from our lives, but we see the suffering and want to help, to make a real difference. We are proud to announce our support of SOS Children’s Villages, namely the Vietnam base, where we have a real affinity because of our office in Hanoi.” The global federation works to prevent family breakdowns andcare for children who have lost one or both of their parents and other minors at risk. The charitable organisation works with communities, partners and states to make certain the rights of all children, regardless of location or status, are respected and fulfilled.
“We chose Vietnam because of the strongbond we have with the country and the people there. Our Hanoi office is a huge and integral part of our Jonckers family.” Renda goes on to say the aim of Jonckers is to aid and assist others in securing safe, loving homes for the children and infants of Hanoi.
“We know all children aren’t as privileged, as safe, and secure as our own. It’s our goal and duty to be a major factor in the development of as many children as possible, over the course of our partnership. We are truly honoured to be associated with such a worthy organisation.”
