Haiyan, one of the most devastating tropical storms of all times, struck the Philippines on November 8, 2013. Millions of people, mostly children, will be needing international help for months. The inhabitants of the eastern Philippine islands of Leyte and Samar were hit particularly hard. For this reason, we dedicated the traditional Memmert Christmas donation of 40,000 € to...

Memmert's first kids run promoting young athletes had a record number of registrations for the largest annual running event in Schwabach and a new course record made by Team Memmert at the half marathon. And all this so shortly before the end of the season. What more could we want?!

For the second time already, our boys were busy grilling sausages next to the marathon course of the Challenge Roth for the numerous spectators, and for a good course, too. The proceeds of 1,000 Euros were donated to Dr. Jahn’s foundation for children‘s aid in Rwanda this year. There are many characteristics Memmert, Dr. Jahn and Birgit Kebbel, who made the project known to us,...

After a fundraising campaign during the Challenge Roth, Memmert donated 72 teddy bears to each of the Rescue Coordination Centres of the BRK Schwabach and Heilsbronn, the Johanniter-Unfallhilfe Schwabach-Roth and the Kreisklinik Roth. Head of marketing Katja Rosenke was now visiting Roth Hospital so that she could see at first hand how often the sweet comforting teddy bear...

For many years now at Christmas time, a generous Memmert donation has been sent to the SOS-Kinderdorf (SOS Children’s Village). Last Christmas, managing director Christiane Riefler-Karpa had made available the sum of 40,000 € for the construction of an SOS Children’s Village in Ethiopia. The buildings of the SOS Children’s Village in Addis Ababa, opened in 1981, have been...

Christmas is the time for donations. For many years, it has been a tradition at Memmert in the Christmas season to think about those who are not living in prosperity or who even fell victim to devastating disasters. Millions of children in Africa do not have enough to eat and even in comparatively rich Germany, many underprivileged young people need our help. Shortly before...

As we know, small causes may have large effects. It all started in 2004, when a part of the ceiling plaster in the old St. Willibald’s church in Büchenbach fell off. What at first seemed to be done with some minor repairs turned into a major church restoration. The evangelical church community was not able to pay the repairs with own financial resources and was therefore...

For many years now, Memmert has been supporting the SOS Kinderdorf project with a Christmas donation. In 2008, 40,000 € went to the SOS vocational training centre in Nuremberg, financing the 3rd year of training for two young men.

The 16.000 € that Memmert had donated for the Pakistan flood victims have reached the devastated people there without deductions or detours. One of our distributors for Pakistan, Rays Technologies, who had received one half of this amount, had added another 4.500 € himself.

To support the flood victims, Memmert donates 8000 € each to two distributors in Pakistan. We would kindly ask you to make a contribution as well to provide relief for the suffering people there.
