March 27, 2014, Sofia – Aurubis Bulgaria is an official partner of an initiative to promote the role and activities of SOS Children's Villages - Bulgaria – the First Balkan SOS bicycle tour. Two young people brought up in the SOS Children's Villages - Daniel and Lyupcho, will embark on a 19-day tour of 1700 km in six Balkan countries and the corresponding SOS Children's Villages. And they will do this by bicycles.
Their aim is to attract public attention to the SOS Children's Villages, where they both grew up.
“Traditionally Aurubis is supporting promotion of sport among young people and leading Bulgarian athletes along with a range of other social projects. I am glad to support this wonderful initiative and to enable its realization. SOS Children's Villages, where Lyupcho and Daniel have grown up, as well as other locations in and outside of the tour’s route are a place where abandoned and orphaned children receive a new family, caring parent and a second chance at life. That is why this partnership is an important part of the social program of Aurubis Bulgaria " said Executive Director of Aurubis Bulgaria Nicolas Treand.
