Tillotts cares for people, who suffer from various disabilities and makes a Christmas donation every year to the CBM Christoffel Blindenmission. The impressive journey to Nepal and Laos made by Tillotts’ CEO Thomas A. Tóth, including a visit to a centre for children with disabilities, motivated Tillotts to continue to support this NGO since 2011.
For the upcoming years, our donation will be benefiting men, women and children in Luang Prabang, Laos, who are affected from various disabilities. The specific project aims to empower women, men, girls and boys with all disabilities in their communities and to provide equal access to social life activities and necessary services, such as health care, education, work or social services in their place of residence.
It is Tillotts’ hope that this contribution will bring some joy, happiness and courage to the people of Laos and help them in their daily lives.
You can find a couple of impressions from the project below.
