Henry Lamotte Group Donates for Earthquake Victims in Indonesia
The region surrounding the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia was afflicted by several devastating earthquakes and tsunamis in September and October of last year. We have donated a large sum of money to the Hilfswerk Ostasian, a non-profit relief organisation founded by the East Asiatic Society of Bremen. The donation will go to a locally organised project in the city of Palu. The purpose of the project is to build an orphanage and a kindergarten, where traumatized children can receive care and support. Our donation will be used to buy furnishings for the building as well as for food and scholarships for the youngsters. The project itself will be overseen locally by a member of the East Asiatic Society.
The last year's Christmas donation went to German Diabetes Relief – People with Diabetes
The Christmas presents presented to us were raffled during our Christmas party as part of a raffle. The company has increased the proceeds and donate a certain amount of the German Diabetes Aid. The objective of this non-governmental, non-profit organisation is to improve the lives of diabetics in Germany. They advocate the interests of diabetics in the public domain as well as advise the government, health insurers and medical practitioners. In addition, the organization fosters diabetes self-help and support groups.
Going to work by bicycle - biking for worthy causes
In the spring and summer months we encourage our staff to cycle to work. For each kilometre cycled, our company donates € 0.05 for a good cause.
This year the donation goes to Bremer Treff, a meeting center for people with material, physical or mental problems.
