Kollo hospital receives new ambulance

In every country of the world it is important to provide fast and efficient help in case of emergency. Thanks to the donation of a discarded ambulance by the Paramedic-Ambulanz Kirchheim, its new owner, Complexe de Santé Hosanna in Niger will now be able to improve the speed and the quality of their emergency measures.

Thanks to the comprehensive equipment and the powerful motor of the ambulance, the Nigerien doctors will soon be able to respond faster to future emergency calls. The new vehicle provides especially for the focus of the hospital, which is on mother and child health care and on obstetrics.

“The generous donation of the Paramedic Ambulanz enables simpler and more effective work for the staff of the Kollo hospital, for the new ambulance is twelve years younger than the previous one”, confirms also the responsible humedica official in charge Klaus Haas.

humedica expresses their gratitude to the Paramedic Ambulanz Kirchheim on behalf of all beneficiaries in regard to this attentive donation.

humedica greets students

As a town of 40,000 inhabitants, Kaufbeuren is not only the domicile of the humedica headquartes, but also the site of the Fachhochschule für öffentliche Verwaltung und Rechtspflege (University of Applied Science for Civil Service and administration of justice) in Bavaria. Exactly at the beginning of the new semester, humedica could present themselves to the new students in the course of a freshman session.

After the address of welcome by mayor Stefan Bosse and his reference to humedica’s long tradition in Kaufbeuren, a comprehensive information desk invited the students to get an idea of humedica’s work. They could also discuss more substantial questions during a personal conversation with humedica staff Deborah Schmieg and Lina Koch.

humedica thanks the mayor of Kaufbeuren for the organization and implementation of this event and looks forward to seeing some of the students.

New trainees in the headquarters

humedica offers the possibility for motivated students and graduates to experience a qualified internship in three different areas: international projects and programs (IPP), public relations (PR) and fundraising (FR).

This month, the team at the headquarters in Kaufbeuren could greet three new trainees. 23-year-old Susanne Koch and 25-year-old Andrea Rudin are both bachelor graduates and will support our IPP department for six months each. 29-year-old Cindy Jandl, who comes from Switzerland, will support the department fundraising for half a year, too.

humedica is glad about this support and the fresh breeze in our organization. We wish Susanne, Andrea and Cindy a good start and a blessed time!

If you, too, are interested in a responsible and interesting internship with humedica, please contact Mr. Steffen Richter, who is the responsible person. Thank you very much!

A feast for voluntary helpers

In the evening of October, 17, 2013 humedica opened their warehouse doors for a celebration. The management and the staff team wanted to thank the numerous voluntary helpers with a nice evening; reliable helpers which humedica has been able to count on for years.

humedica could greet over 130 participants to the so-called helpers’ reunion. Most of the visitors have been committed to humedica for many years already in different areas, others want to start.

“There are many tasks for which we need voluntary help”, says Roswitha Bahner-Gutsche, humedica staff and main organizer of the helpers reunion, during a presentation. Office work, transport, public relations, washing cuddly toys, sorting packages – the list of tasks is endless and varied.

“This reunion was a well-rounded affair. The atmosphere was distracted and content”, says Roswitha Bahner-Gutsche after the meeting. “The helpers’ reunions are just a small effort made by humedica to say 'Thank you' to all volunteers for their inestimably great help.”
