Austria is a rich country – we always rank near the top in any EU wealth comparison. At the same time, many people in our midst live in poverty or are at risk of poverty. Unfortunately, one quarter of this group that is particularly affected are children.
That is why SIGNA and Nathalie and René Benko have long involved themselves in the Tiroler Kinderschutzverein, in Prof. Siegfried Meryn’s “Sag Nein zu Krank und Arm” (“Say No to Sick and Poor”) association, in the Tiroler Kinderkrebshilfe (Tyrol Children’s Cancer Aid) and in the Kitz Charity Race. With annual donations amounting to over one million euros, we jointly demonstrate a great sense of social responsibility.
From the very beginning, there was this desire to make a difference for disadvantaged children and their families – exactly where help is needed most, and in a way that improves living situations quickly, concretely, and in an unbureaucratic way.
