Many aid organisations in Germany are currently working every day to help people and to contain the consequences of the coronavirus. Especially in these times it is important that nobody is left alone. On behalf of all aid organisations, we have donated 7,500 euros to the Corona Emergency Aid Fund of the German Red Cross, because we want to help and be there for each other, too. The German Red Cross uses and supports mobile medical practices and fever measuring stations throughout Germany to strengthen the health system and relieve the burden on hospitals. In addition, many volunteers help with psycho-social care in times of quarantine and physical distance. The supply of necessary food is also a priority. Food delivery services are organised to protect the elderly and reduce the risk of infection. The donations thus arrive where they are really needed.
We have a close relationship to Italy, not only in business terms – the country and its people are very close to our hearts. This is why we are also involved in the initiative of the German-Italian Chamber of Commerce, which collects donations for Italian hospitals that are particularly hard affected. We are all in the same situation and can only overcome this crisis together.
