A time for giving gifts
Cargo trainees raise more than 13,000 euros for help alliance with their advent calendar sale and use it to support children with disabilities in Vietnam.
For the second time running, current and former Cargo trainees have developed and sold an advent calendar with great prizes for the benefit of help alliance, completely under their own steam. As the 1,000 copies of the calendar sold out last year, in 2017 more than 1,500 calendars were purchased. And so it was that the tidy sum of 13,056.09 euros was raised which will benefit the help alliance project Saigon Children’s Charity (SCC) in Vietnam, which is currently supporting nearly 300 mentally and physically disabled children.
“Everything’s a matter of course to us: access to education, prospects, personal fulfilment. With the donation from the advent calendar campaign, we see a great opportunity to help help alliance and the SCC in Vietnam, especially to enable children with disabilities to participate in society and have a self-determined future.
