Mondi donates €37,250 to UNICEF for ‘Water Supply for Aleppo’

<< Back to Breaking News

Mondi has again made a donation to UNICEF in connection with the company’s biannual customer satisfaction survey. To encourage customers to participate, Mondi promised a donation to a charity fund for each completed survey received. This year the initiative resulted in a total donation of €37,250, far surpassing the €27,000 raised by the 2015 Mondi survey.

UNICEF will use the €37,250 received from Mondi as start-up funding for a new project called ‘Water Supply for Aleppo’. Much of the infrastructure in this Syrian city has been damaged by war. With €37,250 UNICEF can restore a functioning system of running water and plumbing to five schools in Aleppo, enabling Syrian children to once again attend schools with proper hygienic facilities. UNICEF’s ‘Water Supply for Aleppo’ fund is open to further donations from the public so that more water supply infrastructure can be repaired in the city.

Dr Gudrun Berger, Executive Director, Austrian Committee for UNICEF, commented, “We are grateful for Mondi’s contributions to various UNICEF projects over the years. Their clever approach of linking their company initiative to charitable fundraising has again resulted in a significant donation for an urgently needed programme.”

Albert Klinkhammer, Mondi Group Marketing Director, said, “We are delighted that the increased participation in our customer survey has resulted in our much larger donation to UNICEF this year. We are pleased to support this project that will benefit children in Syria, and we hope that our start-up funding will inspire others to donate to this very worthy cause. We look for opportunities to make social responsibility a part of what we do. Every day.”
