Each year in February, Caritas starts a donation campaign for children in need. The programme for children in need and their families includes assistance for homeless children, access to education, help for Aids orphans and numerous other measures to maintain the children’s social environment.
We also support specific projects of the Caritas children’s campaign. Since 2005.
As part of the children’s campaign and its ExtraVALUE Sponsoring Programme, Erste Bank specifically promotes one project in Eastern Europe.
2019: Daycare Centres for children from the poorest backgrounds in Blaj
In addition, Erste Bank supports a social project for children in need: this year, the Caritas daycare centres in Blaj, Romania. Here poor children receive a warm meal every day and get help with their homework. Children from particularly precarious backgrounds can also use the shower facilities and have their clothes washed in the daycare centre.
