Join in: „Present from the heart” enters its final phase

Shortly before the end of the year, our big Christmas parcel campaign „Present from the heart“ enters its final phase. After ten thousands of affectionately arranged parcels have been picked up in collecting points all over Bavaria and have been transported to the humedica headquarters in Kaufbeuren, the campaign for children in need has now reached its peak of action here. Till the 9th of December our many volunteers will check each package for the correct content and prepare it for shipment to Eastern Europe.

But not only children in Romania and Co. will get a “Present from the heart” as a Christmas surprise: also needy boys and girls in humedica project countries, which are much more far away will receive a parcel filled with useful items. To avoid unnecessary transport costs, humedica volunteers will prepare the overseas presents directly on site thanks to the generous donations.

Thus children in Zimbabwe are not only presented with toys, but also with urgently needed food and when boys and girls in Sri Lanka open their presents, they will also find everything they need to attend school.

Join in and bring a smile on the face of a child in need by donating for „Present from the heart“. Thank you so much!

1.181 food parcels for typhoon „Haima“ victims

About one month ago the typhoon „Haima“ hit the North of the Philippines and destroyed accommodations and infrastructure. Furthermore its masses of water also wrecked vast cultivation areas – a disaster for the many inhabitants, who live off agriculture.

To help the many affected people through these hard times, humedica distributed together with its partner organisation PHILRADS more than 1.100 food parcels. These contained rice and beans as well as dried fish and milk powder in order to provide the people with all they need until they are able to fend for themselves again.

These relief measures in the North of the Philippines complete the humedica engagement on this island state, whose inhabitants are time and again inflicted by the effects of typhoons and tropical storms. Till date humedica supports 250 families in the Eastern Philippines community of Hernani, which were affected by the typhoon „Haiyan”.

Thought-through: THW (Federal Agency for Technical Relief) Kaufbeuren donates tent

Only because something is no longer brand new, that does not mean it is no more operational. That´s the way Pierre Wasgien, spokesman of the THW Kaufbeuren saw the case. With the support of the municipal construction facilities and the master saddler Hans Joachim Scupin he repaired a huge tent, which he now transferred for free to humedica.

From the Kaufbeuren headquarters the 20 x 30 meter tent now went to the humedica partner organisation Prison Fellowship Romania (PFR), who will put it to good use in its future aid projects. „In Romania Prison Fellowship cares intensively for the children of inmates, who would often be on their own without the support of the organisation.“, explains the responsible humedica employee Alastair Scott and adds: „We are glad that we can pass on the tent to such a reliable and respected relief organisation as PFR, which carries out work of great value in Romania.“

On site the tent will be used for various events such as holiday camps or parties. In the name of all supervised children in Romania humedica thanks all persons responsible for the time and work they put into this donation.
