Volvo has always been synonymous with safety. The Swedish carmaker has built a reputation around some of the safest cars on the planet. It’s the kind of safety that you would want your kids to be cocooned in, no matter what.
Yet Volvo doesn’t just build safe cars. Lately, it is once again shown its commitment to institutions like the Chosen Children Village in Silang, Cavite. Volvo Philippines officials, together with the Nordic Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (NordCham) initiated moves to donate some funds for the rehabilitation and care of this community.
The ceremony was attended by no less than Sweden’s Ambassador to the Philippines, Harald Fries, and his wife Susan, who were transported to the Village in a Volvo XC90. Also on hand was Bo Lundqvist, NordCham President. It was their way of showing their support for the worthwhile endeavor.
With Volvo known for coming up with safety systems that protect drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and of course, children, it is but natural that it does its share to see to it that children of all walks of life—especially the less privileged—be given a shot at a brighter future. And the Chosen Children Village is just one place it can share its blessings with.
