For Haiti: Charity in Action VIII - Charity Evening at a Market Garden

by Franziska Baur,  2010/03/01

Also the trade association Gewerbeverein Bobingen has dedicated itself to supporting the victims of the earthquake in Haiti. At the end of February, a charity evening took place in the midst of flowers and bushes at the spacious rooms of the market garden Sirch and the money collected during the event was donated to humedica.

The wellbeing of the guests was ensured by the hosts and many assistants who provided exquisite culinary delights, a musical framework programme and a tombola. Mr Reichert, a member of the party Christian Social Union (CSU) and president of the district of Swabia, took over the patronage of the event.

Dieter Schmidt (together with his wife Nancy) provided the visitors with a lot of information and personal impressions from Haiti. During the presentation, the people in the room, who had been talking animatedly, quieted down; everyone was captured by the emotional explanations of the experienced humedica coordinator.

After the presentation many guests visited the information stand of humedica and asked for further information. Families, children, business people and older visitors – many of them wanted to know more about the situation in Haiti and the work of humedica.

The costs and expenses of the evening and the tombola were assumed by 14 sponsors of the trade association Gewerbeverein Bobingen. Hence, the donation box which had been set up at the entrance contained the first 1,000 euros as early as at the beginning of the event. After the last guests had left for their homes, the box contained an amazing total sum of donations: over 5,000 euros.

Enthusiastic about the event, Dieter Schmidt said: “This evening has shown how much people can achieve if they all work together”. On this note, the entire humedica team would like to thank all those who organised and contributed to the realisation of this charity evening for their combined efforts.

We would also like to ask you to support our work by means of continuing donations for the survivors in Haiti.
