HUMANITARIAN ACTIONS

SOL’S has been involved for more than 15 years in helping the neediest
populations by offering its support to many important NGOs
(Non-Governmental Organisations) in the production countries.
Through its actions, SOL’S joins forces with those who contribute
to improving the living conditions of the local population.

SOL’S also encourages and supports its partners when they undertake
humanitarian missions. For example, in 2015, a mission of ophthalmic
surgeons allowed to carry out 2,800 medical examinations and 300
operations, improving the daily life of the neediest people and even
restoring their sight.
