In April 2014, some 100 Oiltanking Colombia employees and family members marched through the streets of Cartagena, from the historic city walls to the city hall, to stand up for children’s rights. Various local and regional authorities had organized the event to raise public awareness of the violation of children's rights in Colombia based on current statistics. The march, which was accompanied by colorful actions, took four hours. In addition to participation by its own staff, Oiltanking made a donation towards the organization of the event. In all, 4,000 people attended, including many children, who created a carefree atmosphere together with clowns, musicians and other artists.
