Together as one into the new year

The year 2021 is coming to an end and we look back with pleasure on many successful, wonderful, amusing and special moments. We would like to thank all our business partners, customers and employees for their loyalty and great cooperation over the past months. It has been shown to us once again that we can achieve anything if we work together hand in hand. Solidarity is the top priority in the Memmert Family, which is why it is a matter of course for us to support a number of social organizations and projects once again this year. It is a special pleasure for us to tell you more about these projects.

Stiftung Ambulantes Kinderhospiz München - Filling days with life

In 2021, Memmert will once again support the  Outpatient Children's Hospice Munich Foundation (AKM). Since 2004, the institution has been caring for families with terminally ill and life-threateningly seriously ill unborn children, newborns, children, adolescents and young adults in Munich and throughout Bavaria. In addition to the team consisting of full-time doctors, psychologists, nurses and social workers, more than 250 volunteers are involved in crisis intervention, family support and public relations work for those affected. The foundation is a solid support for families in difficult situations, providing moments of safety, security and normality.

Boundless help for people in need - Ärzte ohne Grenzen

The aid organization  Ärzte ohne Grenzen e. V. (Doctors without Borders) works every day in more than 70 countries to help people who are left with nothing as a result of conflicts or disasters, parents who can no longer feed their children, and people who have to escape violence. The organization provides approximately ten million free medical treatments each year to people who would otherwise receive no help. Around the world, they rescue sick and injured people in need and provide them with urgently needed food, medicine and general relief supplies. Every person receives exactly the support they need. Of course, this happens regardless of religion, culture or political conviction. Memmert is happy to help again this year.

SOS-Kinderdorf e. V. - We continue to support the Latin America project

For over 60 years, the organization  SOS-Kinderdorf e. V. has been ensuring that children are given a safe home in all countries of the world. Especially very poor areas depend on the support of the association. This also includes some regions in South America, where many children find it difficult to gain access to education, medicine and healthy nutrition. This year, Memmert is once again supporting the "SOS Children's Village Family in Latin America" project. A children's village gives children in need a family and enables each child to shape its own future. The inhabitants experience a feeling of safety, security and belonging - just as it should be in a family. We are pleased that we have been able to support this initiative for many years.

Animal-assisted therapy for children and adolescents

 Dr. Katharina Alexandridis is a horse therapist and researches the influence of horse and animal-assisted therapy on the healing of mentally ill children and adolescents at the "Institute for Exercise Therapy and Movement-Oriented Prevention and Rehabilitation" of the German Sport University Cologne. In 2021, we will again support two interesting projects of hers. On the one hand, we are committed to dog-assisted sports therapy with children with ADHD and, on the other, to horse-assisted therapy for Parkinson's disease.

Deutsche Kinderkrebshilfe gives hope

The  Stiftung Deutsche KinderKrebshilfe (German Children's Cancer Aid Foundation) is committed to helping children suffering from cancer throughout Germany. It is financed exclusively by donations and voluntary contributions from the public. These are used, among other things, for hospital-related and clinical research in pediatric oncology, the establishment and expansion of pediatric cancer centers, special wards, treatment concepts and support for parents, for example in the form of parental homes near the hospital.
