Sumitomo (SHI) Demag cares: Company child hospice donation.

Kinderhospiz Mitteldeutschland recently received a generous donation of Euro 2.500 from funds raised by Sumitomo (SHI) Demag employees to provide palliative care for seriously ill children and support for families.

 

Raising funds for local children’s hospice facilities has been a long-held tradition at the injection moulding machine manufacturer. From Christmas 2019 until Eastern 2020, employees at the company’s German site Wiehe donated generously to a fundraising campaign. On 28 May, the Works Council Chairman Mr. Danny Kunze, Mr. Frank Stengel who launched the donation tradition many years ago, and Managing Director Mr. Gerd Liebig handed over a donation cheque to Kinder- und Jugendhospiz Mitteldeutschland.

 

Praising the collective fundraising efforts of colleagues, Works Council Chairman Danny Kunze said: "This year, the commitment of our employees to the seriously ill children and their families was particularly impressive. Without donations and voluntary work, the work these facilities do would not be possible. That is why it is a matter of the heart for us to help."

 

Unfortunately, the costs incurred during a stay in a children's hospice and outpatient hospice care are not fully covered by health and nursing care insurance in Germany. With around 40,000 children at any time falling ill in a life-shortening way, providing psychosocial support, dignified palliative care and relief via children’s hospices and outpatient support services is critical.

 

It’s one thing to talk about being socially responsible and showing how much we care. Taking action is another thing altogether. Despite working remotely during the current Covid-19 crisis, we are proud to see colleagues are continuing to share their time and making a difference in their local communities,” adds Frank Stengel.
