The HORS Company however thinks of children from the children’s homes. They have a sweet tooth; unfortunately they don’t have parents which usually buy sweets for children. That’s why the HORS Company opened the “Pyramida” Project in 2001. In the frame of the “Pyramida” Project the HORS Company presents sweets to more than 40 children’s homes every year. Children like the lollies all the time.
