Spain: Repairing a shelter for poor children
In March every year, HME-ES and HFS celebrate Honda Values day, an event where they carry out CSR activities mainly for disadvantaged children.
In 2014, they held the event at a home for children aged from 3 to 12 years.
On the day, fifty-five HME-ES and HFS associates volunteered to coach the children in different activities and games, to prepare nutritionally balanced food, and to read books, in addition to doing some repairs at the facility.
These activities are grounded in the Honda vision of “striving to be a company society wants to exist.” The aim is not just to give joy to children in homes, but to provide every associate with valuable opportunities for contributing to their local communities through their own actions.
Poland: Hosting a children’s health event on Children’s Day
In June 2013, the VFR Poland Motorcyclists Association organized an event on Children's Day to lift the spirits of sick children. This charitable activity to support the health of children began in 2009 with the hope of helping children forget the burden of being in hospital, if even for a short while.
On the day, more than one hundred motorcyclists and local people gathered to give the seriously ill children presents of balloons and sweets. Honda also presented a number of fun experiences for the children, including practicing on riding trainers (a motorcycle traffic safety device), watching stunt shows, and riding on character-themed motorcycles.
