Fundraising campain 2020
Many things had to be thought anew. We had to abandon well-trodden paths, so we broke new ground. Challenges were enormous, but we’re still standing – Together.
We would like to thank our customers and suppliers for the good cooperation this year. We wish you all the merriest of holidays. Fully confident, with a new vision for the future we face the year 2021.
As in previous years, we refrain from sending individual gifts in favour of donations to selected relief organisations. In view of critical conditions in healthcare and social systems worldwide, we have decided to further increase our charitable contributions.
We have been supporting the same organisations for quite some time. At this point, we would like to introduce these organisations and their objectives briefly.
The funds of the Fanconi-Anämie-Stiftung are used as defined in the foundation's purpose to help people who are suffering from Fanconi anaemia. The foundation supports and promotes finding better diagnostic and treatment options for Fanconi anaemia as well as scientific and medical research. An important objective is also informing, advising and supporting affected children and their families.
Düsseldorfer Tafel e.V.
The Düsseldorf Tafel e.V. advocates that no plate remains empty by distributing food that no one else needs any longer. The charity organisation collects surplus food to provide low-income families with a healthy and balanced diet at no charge. Düsseldorfer Tafel e.V. cooperates with retailers and producers that supply produce no longer saleable but still of impeccable quality.
Neusser Tafel e.V.
The Neusser Tafel have committed themselves to collect rejected produce that is still suitable for consumption and pass it on to the appropriate authorities. These food items represent an additional support for the most deprived citizens of Neuss. The supply area covers the cities of Kaarst, Korschenbroich, Meerbusch and Neuss. The charity organisation supplies the collected food to about 300 households every week and to other facilities such as refugee shelters and day-care centres.
The association was founded in 2013. The objective of the association is to help children and adolescents who live in real poverty quickly and efficiently. “Make children smile” is the slogan of the association’s founders.
Die Elterninitiative Kinderkrebsklinik e.V.
Concerned parents, nurses and doctors founded the Elterninitiative Kinderkrebsklinik e.V. (parents initiative for a children's cancer hospital) in 1979. One major concern of the initiative is to facilitate the often very long stay of children and adolescents in the Children's Cancer Hospital Düsseldorf. The organization has realised many activities and events.
Ärzte ohne Grenzen e. V.
Ärzte ohne Grenzen helps to provide medical care to people in need and to alleviate their suffering, if local health authorities are no longer functioning due to natural disasters or man-made crises.
