Volunteers have worked in 26 institutions to help children and the elderly in need
The day of social activity of employees of BULSTRAD and BULSTRAD LIFE took place for the seventh consecutive year in 18 cities in the country

At the end of October, nearly 200 volunteers from BULSTRAD VIENNA INSURANCE GROUP and BULSTRAD LIFE VIENNA INSURANCE GROUP participated in the traditional "Social Acive Day". The initiative is part of the Vienna Insurance Group's long-term campaign that encourages employees of Group companies in 24 Central and Eastern European countries to help people in need. On that day volunteers go to work not in their offices, but where it is needed.

This year, the teams and the management of the two companies worked in 26 social institutions in 18 cities in the country - Sofia, Plovdiv, Varna, Burgas, Rousse, Pleven, Stara Zagora, Haskovo, Veliko Tarnovo, Sliven, Petrich, Shumen, Vratsa, Montana, Blagoevgrad , Bansko, Pirdop and Karlovo.

Local volunteer events were organized according to the specific needs of support and voluntary work demanded by social institutions. The activities were various - for example, painting, gardening, cleaning, drawing and painting with children, a bread-kissing lesson in Plovdiv, a cinema visit with the youth of the center in Bourgas. In Varna volunteers made souvenirs, jewels, Christmas cards, Christmas decorations, and many of these items will be sold to charity bazaars and provide funds for support.

In Sofia, where the volunteers worked in five places, some of the staff helped clean up the outdoor areas and gardening at the old people's home "Long Longevity", while others used their skills to fool the wool and make souvenirs to raise funds to support of the activity of the Day Center for Disabled Young People at the "World of Mary Foundation". There were also volunteers in "Bulgarian Food Bank", where they sorted fruits and vegetables for commodities, social kitchens, etc.
Volunteers in Sofia also worked at the Day Care Center for Children with Disabilities "St. Vrach" and at the Day Center for Disabled Young People at "We are also here" Association. They devoted themselves to making clay sculptures, postcards and souvenirs for the Christmas charity bazaars, which will help the centers with additional resources for the much needed materials for therapeutic work with their visitors.

The Social Active Day of BULSTRAD VIENNA INSURANCE GROUP and BULSTRAD LIFE VIENNA INSURANCE GROUP is organized in partnership with the BCause Foundation in Support of Charity. According to the Foundation, this year's volunteer initiative volunteers from both companies have managed to help with the work of nearly 650 children and elderly people with disabilities and their families.
