Last month, Rudolf van Soelen, CEO of Electro Cirkel, traveled to the Philippines with his daughter Julia to visit the Sacred Heart children’s home, which the company has financially supported since its establishment in 1993.
During their visit they were given an enthusiastic tour of the home and surrounding area and made numerous trips with the children, including a visit to a water park nearby.
Back in the Netherlands a package was sent with supplies for the children and the school.
The Fransiscan Sisters of the Sacred Hearts Children’s Home is an initiative of the two van Soelen brothers Loek and Rudy, founders of Electro Cirkel, who were somewhat shocked by the life and unpleasant circumstances for some local children during their stay in the Philippines.
The home was built for children that, due to circumstances, can no longer live with their parents or no longer have any parents or guardians that can take care of them. At the moment 25 children and 4 supervisors live in the children’s home. The supervisors provide education, religion and personal growth of the children.
