A company that gets involved
Die Karmel Missionsstiftung - Dr. Fernando (The Carmelite Mission Foundation -
Dr Fernando) has a 40% shareholder stake in AVILA Holding. This allows the AVILA
Group to create a solid long-term financial basis for the global aid activities
of the Carmelite order. In this spirit, the group also has a series of projects
to support religious communities.
These activities prove that it is possible to operate profitably whilst at the same
time acting in a socially responsible and humane way. It is not without good reason
that the Group takes its name from Saint Teresa of Avila, whose father was a successful
merchant who always used a portion of his earnings for charitable purposes.
