For several years now, our subsidiary Dräger Medical South Africa (Pty.)
has been involved in what are known as “Adopt a School” projects, which
entail, for example, reducing levels of illiteracy among children and
young people by means of large donations of books. In addition to this,
our caring employees are sponsoring a children’s home in Johannesburg
and supporting it both financially and by rolling their sleeves up and
pitching in to help.
In February 2010, we donated EUR 10,000
and 20 Dräger helmets to the charitable organization @fire -
Internationaler Katastrophenschutz Deutschland e.V. The German-based aid
organization has 120 members, who are largely firefighters but also
include paramedics and forestry workers. They give their time and skills
to help in emergencies across the globe, be it fighting forest fires or
supporting relief efforts in natural disasters such as the devastating
earthquake in Haiti.
In May 2011, we made a considerable
donation to the “Retten macht Schule” initiative run by the Björn
Steiger foundation, enabling around 12,000 school students in the
federal state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern to take life-saving first-aid
training. The initiative aims to train all seventh-graders in Germany in
CPR in a lesson held in school. The Björn Steiger foundation provides
the students and the teachers who conduct the training with specially
developed practice dummies and training materials. The foundation has
been working to improve emergency first aid in Germany since 1969.
In September 2008, we equipped a hospital
in the Peruvian Andes with medical devices as a donation. This is just
one example for our commitment to improving people’s lives across the
world. We provide proactive help in the form of donations of equipment
in countries marked by poverty and by an insufficient level of medical
care for the population.
