NSK donates €20,000 to UNICEF

7 December 2017

As in 2016, NSK has again this year decided to forego giving any Christmas presents to customers across Europe, instead donating €20,000 to humanitarian charity UNICEF, which is working tirelessly to protect children and their families from danger all over the world.»We take our corporate social responsibilities very seriously,» states Dr Jürgen Ackermann, CEO NSK Europe Ltd. »We selected UNICEF for this year's donation as it provides vital humanitarian and developmental assistance to children and mothers in developing countries across the globe. This year we have decided that our donation should support South Sudan. I am sure our customers will understand that this donation is being made instead of giving corporate Christmas presents, and will join with us in supporting the important work of UNICEF around the world.»

The conflict in South Sudan, which first erupted in 2013, is having devastating consequences for the country's population. Women and children face immediate risks of violence, displacement, hunger and life-threatening diseases.

UNICEF's work in South Sudan includes the provision of screening and treatment of children for malnutrition, as well as safe water and sanitation. Children are immunised, while separated children are registered so they can be reunited with their families. Furthermore, with education interrupted for vast numbers of children, UNICEF's 'Back to Learning' initiative aims to rehabilitate hundreds of damaged classrooms and provide thousands of children forced out of school with access to education.

As an example of what UNICEF could do with the NSK donation, 54,545 portions of peanut paste could be acquired. This basic foodstuff offers around 500 calories and vital vitamins and trace elements. Each undernourished child would receive three packets daily for 4-6 weeks.
