Oaklins' team in Finland supports Save the Children

Covid-19 pandemic has increased children's inequality in Finland. More and more children are at risk of exclusion. At Christmas 2021, we yet again support Save the Children's work in Finland. Christmas donations are used to prevent exclusion and help Finnish families with children in need.

In Finland, the coronavirus crisis has increased children's inequality and the risk of being left out. More and more Finnish families are in financial distress because of the pandemic. Many families with children have to cope without safety nets. Without support, distress can easily grow and accumulate.

More than 120,000 children live in low-income families in Finland. The family background has a clear impact on children’s opportunities. Often children from low-income families are left out of paid hobbies, and they are bullied more than the others. Social exclusion is a concern for them and it undermines their faith in the future. According to the report “Children’s Voice 2021 – Impact of families’ financial situation on the daily lives, leisure time and well-being of children”, published by Save the Children Finland, every second child is concerned about their mental well-being as the pandemic continues.

Save the Children helps children living in the most difficult circumstances. With their work, they reach up to 40,000 children in Finland every year. The organization uses donations to prevent social exclusion and help families in need. We are happy to take part in supporting the hobby opportunities and secondary studies of the children of families with limited means.
