The best way to do good is to be good!

We believe that it is vital that corporations, even small and medium-sized companies, behave in an ethically and socially responsible manner. This forms the foundation of sustainable corporate management that is driven by values. We are committed to a number of selected children’s charities and turn to our employees, customers, and partners for additional support. We also support privately organized aid campaigns for children in developing countries with donations of money and goods.

Our other activities

Support for private projects and sector-specific aid campaigns such as “Dentists for India” and “Hearing AidCustomization in Nepal”. We provide donations of materials and help aid workers to manage the administrative formalities such as shipping processes.

Kinderhilfsprojekt Galle Sri Lanka e.V.

Due to alcohol and drug problems, unemployment and poverty, many families in Sri Lanka live in unimaginable misery. Particularly young girls suffer the most. Sent out for begging in the streets by their parents, they try to survive. They are defenseless exposed to sexual abuse. Most of them are unable to read and write. The orphanage Galle offers girls shelter, school and professional education for an independent and secured future. Kinderhilfsprojekt Galle-Sri Lanka e.V.


Young women - Education - Future!

Life for girls in the slums of India's megacities and remote villages is alarming, with their childhood shaped by poverty, heavy labor, and exploitation. Selective abortion and killing of female infants shortly after birth and sexual abuse are the norm. Only good education enables society to transform so that girls are no longer exploited and suppressed.


On a number of occasions, we have provided ClaSH , the Association for Children with Language, Speech, and Hearing Impairments of Namibia, with donations of goods (ear mold materials, accessories) or campaigns—for example, test packages for the new pediatric mold material addition mini Junior was supplied for a nominal fee with all proceeds going to CLaSH.


Families with a seriously ill child with a reduced life expectancy have to cope with extreme stress. They are under pressure day and night, sometimes over many years. The illness changes not only the life of the child but also that of the entire family. Voluntary support persons from thechildren’s hospice “Die Pusteblume” support families like this.


About 1800 children develop cancer each year in Germany. A diagnosis of cancer, however, covers a diverse range of diseases. The German Children's Cancer Foundation is dedicated to patient groups whose treatment is particularly problematic. We support patient-oriented clinical research projects that aim to develop new treatment approaches.


Worldwide, there are 65 million girls who do not attend school because they are married young, work to support their families, or have to help at home. They have practically no opportunity to receive an education. With the UNICEF campaign “School for Girls”, places are provided for girls in schools in the poorest countries in the world.


Match children out of the factories: The Virudunagar region in India is known for its match and chemical factories. Thousands of children work here doing piecework that barely keeps their families alive. Without an education, these children are trapped in a vicious cycle. Together with the children’s emergency fund, 10 villages are looking for way to break this cycle because school is the best place for children.


Relief aid donations to UNICEF: In developing countries, about two million children die each year from pneumonia alone. Rapid treatment with an effective broad spectrum antibiotic helps in most cases. We have donated 100,000 units of antibiotics.

Schwestern Maria

We support “Die Schwestern Maria”, a registered foundation helping children from slums. The Sisters of Mary help displaced slum children in overpopulated megacities. They support hospitals, homes, schools, and training workshops in countries such as the Philippines, Korea, Mexico, Guatemala, Brazil, and Honduras.


The extent of the natural disaster in northern Pakistan in 2005 was completely underestimated in the shadow of the 2004 tsunami. For ten thousand children, it was a matter of sheer survival. As part of the campaign “Get the children safely through the winter!”, UNICEFcalled for donations. We immediately decided to forgo our usual Christmas gifts and responded to the appeal. Many of our employees, relatives, and company friends joined in.

Stiftung Hänsel + Gretel

The Hänsel + Gretel Foundation raises awareness of children’s needs in Germany. Their programs aim to teach adults to think and act with greater awareness of children’s needs. So that children are not lost, the foundation has initiated and supported more than 400 projects since 1997 to improve the lives of children.

pro familia

pro familia, a non-denominational association with programs for family planning and marriage and pregnancy counseling services has been working in the interests of women, men, adolescents and children since 1952. In 170 counseling centers, people from all religions and nationalities receive specialist and human advice.
