thyssenkrupp Materials Services has implemented its first global fundraising campaign. With this campaign, the company supports children's homes in all countries where it is represented.
The needs and wishes of the children are as varied as the around 40 countries. Together with the directors of the institutions, employees have identified the items that will help the young residents of the homes the most.
The donations range from toys and furniture, to digital aids and basic items such as food and diapers.
A small excerpt from the many countries
All employees personally handed over the donations in kind and in some cases helped out themselves. A team in Hungary, for example, bought furniture for the common room of a children's home and set it up on site.
In Algeria, large quantities of water and hygiene articles for children with motor impairments were handed over. With this the employees supported the only psycho-pedagogical medical center for children in the country.
In England, a large television was donated because the children in the local hospice wanted to watch Disney movies together. Now they can watch all the cartoons that Disney+ and Netflix have to offer at any time.
thyssenkrupp Schulte has launched local campaigns in all four districts and donated to the KlinikClowns, among others. These cheer up young patients in hospitals and distract them from their illness for a moment.
