GfA Fundraiser Campaign 2022
We wish you a merry and reflective Christmas season. We look towards 2023 with optimism and motivation.
This year, we are once again embracing our social responsibility and supporting various organisations. The numerous conflict hotspots around the world have prompted us to further increase our donation to Ärzte ohne Grenzen e.V. (Médecins Sans Frontières)". The energy crisis is forcing many people to accept donated food. For this reason, we have doubled our contribution to the "Tafeln" (food banks) in Neuss and Düsseldorf this year. We also want to get more involved in children's and youth work. In the local Düsseldorf sports club ISC Düsseldorf RAMS 1987 e.V., we have found a partner that is particularly dedicated to this task. We will provide the association with financial support.
At this point, we would like to briefly introduce the supported organisations and their goals.
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.
ISC Düsseldorf RAMS 1987 e.V.
The Inline Skater Hockey Club, established in 1987, has a broad base and, with around 350 members, is one of the largest in its sporting category in Germany. With our commitment, we hope to promote the children's and youth work of the association, in particular. Team spirit, socio-emotional capacity, respect and fairness, discipline and determination as well as passion and creativity are the cornerstones of the club's philosophy - qualities that fit well with those of GfA.
