World Children’s Day 2023

20 November 2023

Today is World Children’s Day celebrated on 20 November each year to promote international togetherness, awareness among children worldwide, and improving children's welfare. World Children’s Day is also UNICEF’s annual day of action for children, by children, marking the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Hannes Snellman has cooperated with UNICEF for many years.

We can be part of supporting sustainable changes around the world through our cooperation with UNICEF”, says Markus Bremer, Partner at Hannes Snellman.

Our cooperation with UNICEF involves various forms, such as offering pro bono legal advice, working with UNICEF’s testament donation programme enabling individuals to leave a legacy for children in need through their wills, and monetary donations to support humanitarian work and development programmes around the world. Hannes Snellman has also participated in UNICEF’s “Justice for Children” project in Rwanda.

Our cooperation with UNICEF reflects the firm’s commitment to corporate social responsibility and our vision and values. We at Hannes believe that every child has the right to a safe, healthy, and happy life, and that supporting UNICEF is one of the most effective ways to make a positive impact on children’s lives.

We also recognise that working with UNICEF provides an opportunity for our lawyers and other professionals to use their skills and expertise for a good cause.

If you wish to make a donation to UNICEF’s collection, you can do it in Finland here and in Sweden here.
