Health food store collects money for humedica flood relief

by Sven Ramones,  2010/08/23

Every donation starting from 1 euro is rewarded with a little chocolate heart provided by the companies RAPUNZEL Naturkost and VollCorner. The entire revenue generated by means of this campaign will be donated to humedica.

100 % of the sum will be used for humedica projects with the objective of supporting the flood victims in Pakistan.

The situation in the flood regions of Pakistan continues to be terrible and up to now an end to the sorrow and misery is not yet in sight. Currently, about one fifth of the country is flooded. 20 millions of people have lost their homes and are completely destitute.

About one in eight Pakistanis is a refugee from the floods. And there continues to be a lack of necessities: food, drinking water, tents, medical treatment and above all financial means for the implementation of relief measures.

At the moment the second team sent by humedica is working in Pakistan; the team consists of physician Dr Ludger Blecher (Würzburg), nurse Herbert Seitz (Gollhofen), surgery nurse Sabine B. (Germaringen) and surgeon Dr Helmuth Meyer (Göppingen), as well as the two coordinators Judith Kühl (Dortmund) and Simon Gelzenleuchter (Uelvesbüll).

Currently, our medical team treats 100-200 patients per day at a school building which for the time being has been turned into a hospital. In the days to come, the working field will be extended to the use of mobile hospitals which will enable the team to reach ill and injured persons in the disaster area directly.

Being aware of the devastating situation in Pakistan, an employee of the health food store VollCorner who also shows a lot of commitment in private life came up with the idea of this donation campaign.

We are very pleased about this idea and about the implementation by sales manager Alexander Worms. “I am glad if we can help”, said Worms. “I hope our customers will make generous donations”!

The donations are collected in specially marked glass jars which have been set up in all VollCorner health food stores in Munich.

On behalf of the flood victims in Pakistan, the humedica team would like to thank VollCorner and RAPUNZEL Naturkost for this spontaneous heartfelt idea and hope that the campaign will be successful. Every donated euro means help. Every chocolate heart represents one donor with heart.

Dear friends of humedica: please continue supporting the work of our medical team in Pakistan. This disaster is of a size we can hardly stand up to without your financial support.
