by LKO,  2016/01/21

The big humedica Christmas parcel campaign „Presents from the heart“ was again a genuine success this winter: the helpers could distribute a total of 83.828 Christmas parcels to children in need.

Volunteer parcel packers all over Bavaria prepared 66.657 Christmas parcels to please children in Eastern European countries such as Rumania, Serbia or the Ukraine. About 4.000 presents stayed in Germany as a Christmas treat for children in refugee camps and at tables.

Thanks to donators from all over Germany humedica helpers, who work in far-off countries such as Ethiopia, the Lebanon or the Philippines, could prepare additional 17.171 „Presents from the heart“ for needy boys and girls. All in all Christmas parcels went to children in 18 different countries.

„Even if we did not quite meet our record set up last year, we are perfectly happy with the result“ resumes campaign leader Roswitha Bahner-Gutsche. „Mainly due to the many industrious Bavarian parcel packers we were able to give a Christmas treat to ten thousands of indigent children this year again. We would like to thank all most sincerely.“

As last year „Present from the heart“ campaign partners were the Bayern 3-Frühaufdreher and the Abendschau of the Bavarian Radio as well as its fundraiser Sternstunden e. V., which took on the parcel transport costs for the Eastern European countries and within Bavaria.

The next campaign is already waiting in the wings: as of the first of March you can sign up as a collecting point for „Presents from the heart“ 2016.

This Christmas more than 83.000 „Presents from the heart“ made indigent children happy. Many thanks for your support. Photo: humedica
