PRO UGANDA campaign

In line with our mission "We help - to increase the quality of life and mobility of people.", we have put the finishing touches to an aid container that will be heading to East Africa in the coming weeks.

Our call was answered by the Jordan medical centre in Krefeld, Hempel AG from Berlin and the Beuthel medical centre in Wuppertal. Among other things, prosthetic parts, orthoses, walking frames and children's clothing, as well as tools and materials for daily use in the African orthopaedic workshop, were delivered to our company headquarters. We collected these goods together, added our own products such as comfort shoes and shoes for diabetics, and sent the shipment on its way.

A total of 13 pallets with a combined weight of around 2.6 metric tons are now on their way from Remscheid to Stuttgart. The shipment will be processed there, prepared for overseas transport and then shipped from Hamburg to Mombasa. It is due to arrive there towards the end of the year.

The preparation and dispatch of the goods involved a great deal of effort from all involved. That makes us all the happier about the great result, and we are excited for our shipment to arrive in Uganda towards the end of the year. A further report on the use of our items in the orthopaedic workshop will follow.

We help - and increase the quality of life and mobility of the people of Uganda!
