Tour de Marel Continues to Support Children in Ivory Coast
In 2013, Marel established a three-year partnership with international charity SOS Children’s Villages and in 2014 Marel employees continued to strengthen this partnership in Yamoussoukro, Ivory Coast. The company’s employees raised €75,000 through their global charity initiative Tour de Marel that took place for the third time in the autumn of 2014.
The money raised will be used to support the Marel School in Yamoussoukro that was built last year with the donation from Tour de Marel 2013. The school provides high quality education to 200 children aged 6-16 years. The Tour de Marel is a series of events and fundraisers comprised of running, walking, cycling and other athletic activities that take place over the year.
