To quote Aesop, “A man is known by the company he keeps”. Paraphrasing this well-known saying, we can say that people are likely to judge the Robert Burns International Foundation by the quality and reputation of its supporters and sponsors. This is what made us extremely proud when in 2015 Mercedes-Benz and its largest European subsidiary EvoBus decided to support the RBIF for an initial period of three years.
Mercedes-Benz/EvoBus have played an instrumental role in supporting the RBIF’s projects since 2015, and it all stemmed from then CEO Ingo Fröhlich attending the Budapest Burns Supper in 2013, where he was touched by the passion, the hard work and the love put in by the people behind the RBIF to support children and their families in need. The projects that the Foundation supports make a real difference to the lives of the children that benefit from the RBIF, and this is something that Mercedes-Benz and EvoBus could identify with, and were keen to support.
EvoBus Hungária Kft. is the general distributor and exclusive representative of EvoBus GmbH, which is a 100% affiliate of Daimler Buses and belongs to the Daimler AG Group.Particular attention is paid to the continuity of our social responsibility, which includes support for disabled people, treatment of sick children and sponsoring youth sports. We are extremely proud and happy to be able to take part in the work of the Robert Burns International Foundation.
“We are delighted to support the achievement of our goals through the RBIF, which are especially important for us.”
Dóra Uray, managing director, EvoBus Hungária Kft.
Acting socially responsibly is the duty of any successful corporation, and of course there are many foundations that are worthwhile being supported. This makes it all the more encouraging that the RBIF was chosen as one of the deserving charity initiatives for Mercedes-Benz and EvoBus. The Burns Suppers also provide a great networking platform, which is without doubt a benefit that any corporation can utilise for further growth.
We are grateful for the support we have received since 2015, and hope we can continue to count on their assistance going forward.
