Social Responsibility

<p>Social Responsibility</p>

For the past five years, Obicà has been supporting the Fondazione Francesca Rava-NPH Italia Onlus.

The Francesca Rava NPH Italia Onlus helps young children in serious need in Italy and around the world through sponsoring children, educational and training programmes, fund-raising projects and volunteering. In Italy the Foundation represents Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH) - Our Little Brothers and Sisters - a charitable organisation founded by American priest Father William Wasson in 1954 and dedicated to saving orphaned and abandoned children in Latin America and providing for their welfare in homes and hospitals throughout the region.

The Francesca Rava - NPH Italia Onlus supports children in all the countries where NPH has a presence, but is particularly involved with its work in Haiti. In the last 10 years, thanks to the help of many donors and volunteers from Italy, the Foundation has delivered several important projects in Haiti in the fields of health, education and nutrition supporting orphans or children in desperate need.

At Obicà we have one main fund-raising drive per year for the Foundation. At Christmas, for every coffee with a Chocolate Truffle Relanghe that we serve with coffee, we donate £1.00 to this charity.

The generous support of Obicà customers has enabled us to contribute to the launch of new units in the vocational training centre in Francisville in Haiti, and to start a mobile bakery there, sent out from Italy, which can produce up to 5,000 bread rolls every day.

Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos™ is a large international family that relies on the support of several fund-raising offices and committees in the US, Canada and Europe.
