In the spirit of its strategic commitment and corporate culture, which includes responsibility to the wider community, OMV Serbia has become a partner of the “Golden Heart” Club, of SOS Children's Village Serbia. Wishing to bring the holiday spirit closer to the children, the employees of OMV Serbia spent time socializing with them. With a nice interactive play featuring children as well to the actors, OMV representatives presented New Year's gifts to the children and had a nice day with them at SOS Children's Village in Kraljevo.
As the first and most important program of the SOS Children's Village Serbia, this organization provides long-term, ongoing support for children without parental care until their independence, and OMV has become part of a team that helps change the lives of hundreds of children across Serbia and give them the opportunity for a better future.
