VP Bank and VP Fund Solutions make Christmas donations to charitable foundations in Luxembourg
This year, VP Bank (Luxembourg) SA and VP Fund Solutions (Luxembourg) SA have decided to forego individual Christmas gifts for their clients and instead make a joint charitable contribution. On 1 December 2023, a donation was handed over in Luxembourg to two charitable foundations that had already received support in 2022.
The "Fondation Hëllef fir d'Natur" received a donation from VP Bank (Luxembourg) SA and VP Fund Solutions (Luxembourg) SA. The foundation has been consistently committed to nature conservation and biodiversity in Luxembourg for over 40 years. In addition to carrying out international and national projects to preserve biodiversity, its most important tasks include information and awareness-raising campaigns to protect nature, scientific work and the purchase and maintenance of nature conservation areas. The donations provide the financial means to carry out these projects, particularly the planting of trees as part of National Tree Day 2023. A cheque in the amount of EUR 5,000 was handed over by Claus Jørgensen, CEO of VP Bank (Luxembourg) SA, and Torsten Ries, CEO VP Fund Solutions (Luxembourg) SA, to Sébastien Pouvreau of the Fondation Hëllef fir d'Natur.
For almost 35 years, the "Fondatioun Kriibskrank Kanner" has supported families of children suffering from cancer or a rare life-threatening disease. Its multidisciplinary team offers personalised support from diagnosis to recovery of the child and provides an administrative and financial service, psychological and social support. In addition, their awareness campaigns contribute to improving the situation of children. Its onco-paediatric research aims to improve treatments and cure more children. The foundation is financed exclusively by donations. Claus Jørgensen and Torsten Ries presented a cheque of EUR 5,000 to Mrs. Veerle Dierick and Mrs. Anne Goeres from the Fondatioun Kriibskrank Kanner.
Claus Jørgensen, CEO of VP Bank (Luxembourg) SA: "We are committed to the principle of sustainable action and therefore support various social, cultural and charitable projects and initiatives out of conviction. In this way, we would like to express our appreciation for these active organisations and fulfil our social responsibility towards our fellow human beings and the environment."
