The war in Ukraine is causing inconceivable suffering to the people. Children and families are particularly hard hit by the attacks. For this reason, the Vaillant Group held a fundraising campaign through which all employees were able to support the humanitarian aid of our long-standing partner "SOS Children's Villages worldwide".
255,000 euros for children and families in Ukraine
The employees of the Vaillant Group donated a clear six-digit amount by the end of the fundraising campaign, which the company has topped up. Overall, the Vaillant Group can thus hand over 255,000 euros to SOS Children's Villages, which provides a broad programme of aid for children and families in Ukraine. The overwhelming willingness to help within the Vaillant Group shows that the success of the Vaillant team can not only be measured in business figures.
Because every child needs a warm home
The Vaillant Group and "SOS Children's Villages worldwide" have been linked by an international partnership since 2013. The company has already supported the children's aid organization in 23 countries - with highly efficient heating technology and social projects.

The Vaillant Group and its 16,000 employees in many countries around the world stand for the values of freedom, democracy, tolerance and the rule of law.
