Radisson Hotel Group is one of the largest hotel companies in the world. SOS Children’s Villages is one of the largest non-profit groups dedicated to building loving and stable families for vulnerable children who have been abandoned or orphaned. Now, the two groups have entered into a partnership.
The main reason for this move is that Radisson Hotel Groups is aiming to have its 1,100 hotels in operation start to sponsor the upbringing and education of at least one child each, ultimately leading to a set of meaningful local relationships with SOS Villages across the globe.
“Responsible Business is at the heart of our company’s promise of making every moment matter, which also means that we support and help advance the communities in which we operate. The creation of the Radisson Hotel Group created a unique opportunity for us to align our company’s commitment to a common global cause that truly will help make a difference in the world, especially for our children and youth. Our partnership with SOS will allow us to help provide a home and a better future for the most vulnerable children in the world,” said , President & CEO, The Rezidor Hotel Group and Chairman of the Radisson Hotel Group Global Steering Committee in a statement.
