Hockey for Hope chairman Alexander Uhrle hands over in-kind donations at Nova Friburgo in person
By organizing the charity inline tournament in the „Erdgas Schwaben Arena“ at Kaufbeuren, Germany, for the second time the club Hockey for Hope supported humedica this year again. The tournament earned 1.334 Euro for our project Campo do Coelho in Brazil from the field of “Children & Education”. Additionally, Hockey for Hope arranged for sports equipment such as jerseys for the children of the day care centre in Nova Friburgo, also supported by a 500 Euro donation of the Login Consultants Germany GmbH. Alexander Uhrle, chairman of Hockey for Hope, handed over these donations in person during a journey to Brazil.
As representative for Hockey for Hope club the president Alexander Uhrle went to Nova Friburgo, Brazil, to pass on in person the donations to our project Campo do Coelho. He did not only bring 1.334 Euro, earned by starting fees for the charity inline tournament of Hockey for Hope as well as by selling food and beverages on site, but also 50 jerseys and 30 rackets as well as other sports equipment for the children of the humedica day care centre.
„We have already known before that the employees and supporters of humedica do a great job, but to see their commitment and dedication at Campo do Coelho in person was overwhelming. We are absolutely certain that our donation of 2.200 Euro to the children´s day care centre is used as it should be and every cent of it is well spend.“ reports Alexander Uhrle after his return from humedica Brazil. A business trip offered him the opportunity to attend the project in person in order to pass on the donations in kind. The passionate hockey player did not miss the chance to play the first hockey games on site together with the children.
We thank Hockey for Hope from all our heart for its great support!
