Contargo Rhein-Neckar Presents Donation to Children’s Hospice
A symbolic cheque representing a donation of 1,500 Euro was handed over to the Mannheim Children’s Hospice “Sterntaler” on 16 December. This was the third time employees and the company have made a donation to the non-profit organisation, which helps families in the Rhein-Neckar Region with children suffering from life-threatening diseases.
This year the employees of Contargo Rhein-Neckar GmbH at the sites in Mannheim, Ludwigshafen and Germersheim did not simply give money – some of them encouraged their colleagues’ willingness to donate generously by selling cakes and waffles. As in former years, the management rounded-up the collected sum.
"The donation will help us to meet the high costs of building extension, as well as supporting our day-to-day activities", said Beate Däuwel of “Verein Kinderhospiz Sterntaler e.V.” after the cheque had been presented.
At the Sterntaler Children’s Hospice, children with illnesses which will shorten their lives are lovingly welcomed together with their parents, brothers and sisters, and are cared for and looked after day and night by the Sterntaler nurses and care staff. Great importance is given to a homely, loving atmosphere and gentle support in terminal care and grief counselling. Much colour, music, games, fun and intensive experience of the immediate here and now set a counterbalance to the imminent process of letting go for the terminally ill children and their families.
