Radisson Hotel Group has teamed up with SOS Children's Villages to help provide food, shelter and a better future for children and youth at-risk.
SOS Children's Villages is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to building stable families for orphaned, abandoned and other vulnerable children.
Radisson Hotel Group aims to have its 1,100 hotels in operation sponsor the upbringing and education of at least one child per hotel and help establish meaningful local relationships with SOS Villages worldwide.
Federico Gonzalez, president and chief executive, Rezidor Hotel Group, and chairman of the Radisson Hotel Group Global Steering Committee, said: "Responsible business is at the heart of our company's promise of making every moment matter, which also means that we support and help advance the communities in which we operate. The creation of the Radisson Hotel Group created a unique opportunity for us to align our company's commitment to a common global cause that truly will help make a difference in the world, especially for our children and youth. Our partnership with SOS will allow us to help provide a home and a better future for the most vulnerable children in the world."
Active in 135 countries and territories, SOS Children's Villages impacts the lives of millions of children through family support and care programs, as well as education, medical, and emergency relief efforts. A collaboration with Radisson Hotel Group will allow SOS Children's Villages to strengthen its efforts by mobilizing local supporters and volunteers in support of ensuring no child grows up alone.
