Telenor's Baba Marta Mission Raises Funds to help Concordia Foundation Children

Just days before March 1, Telenor Bulgaria organizes its regular charity martenizi bazar - Baba Marta Mission.

"The centuries-old Bulgarian tradition - giving and wearing martenizi for health, is an opportunity for Telenor and our employees to be useful to society and groups in need", said Viliana Staneva, Communications & CSR Expertat Telenor Bulgaria.

The charity bazaar is a traditional initiative for Telenor, and this year it is organized in support of the Concordia Foundation. The NGO works with children at risk and children from families with minimal financial resources.

The foundation team and the children have made hand-made martenizi especially for the Telenor bazar, putting a lot of love and enviable creativity.

"Baba Marta always brings the widest smiles to all children's faces. At Concordia, our children have an art studio where they make martenizi every year. Besides being a fun activity for them, it helps them learn to do many things.  We are glad that this year we have the chance to make martenizi for the Telenor team", commented Julia Yordanova, Fundraising and Communications Manager at the Concordia Foundation.

The funds raised from the charitable bazar will be used by Concordia Foundation for the  organization of special art workshops for children. 10 of them are planned, aimed at helping to build children’s fine motor skills.

"Being socially responsible and organizing initiatives of public importance is part of the company's philosophy and Telenor’ team values. It is  essential to us that through volunteering and personal example, we can be useful and contribute to something as important and valuable as the development of children from the Concordia Foundation. The feeling of being helpful is a motivation for further similar initiatives ", commented Viliana Staneva.

The Martenizi  Charity Bazaar – Baba Marta Mission is one of the many sustainable initiatives supporting society, part of Telenor's long-term corporate social responsibility strategy. The telecom executes various projects of public importance, aimed at helping people in need, educating children and parents about the risks on the Internet, providing equipment for various public institutions, and much more.
