Imperial Tobacco employees in the FYR of Macedonia recently gave up their weekend to take part in a community volunteering event in Skopje aimed at improving the quality of life for some of the city’s most vulnerable young adults.
The event formed part of a joint project with the Altadis Foundation and a local charity.
Volunteers were involved in a range of activities such as clearing rubbish, planting shrubs and refurbishing and furnishing apartments.
The beneficiaries of the Create a Better Future project were disadvantaged young people who had left state-run orphanages at the age of 18.
“This was a great event, which involved volunteers from both our trading and manufacturing divisions in Macedonia,” said Inna Napolskaya, finance director, Southern Balkans.
“We were very touched by the young people’s appreciation of our efforts, and we’re planning further activities in the near future to demonstrate our responsibility in action.”
