The region of Ulm and the surrounding area is economically strong and is one of the more prosperous parts of the country. But even here there are fellow citizens who are not doing so well. Whether they are single parents or elderly people whose pensions are barely enough to live on - they are all in need, usually through no fault of their own, and are dependent on help.
Exactly these people are taken care of by the "Aktion 100.000 and Ulmer helft". For 50 years, this initiative has been known for providing uncomplicated and quick help - unbureaucratically and with a lot of commitment. The self-declared goal is to alleviate hardship in the region and to treat our fellow human beings with more respect and humanity. To this end, donations are collected and taken to exactly where the need is greatest. For example, just before Christmas, 1,500 checks are sent directly to people affected by poverty. In addition, social and charitable organizations and projects are supported to ensure their continued existence.
The 100,000 campaign is supported by income from events and donations. The latter are all the more important this winter, when events can once again not take place due to corona. We are therefore all the more pleased to support this commitment and are convinced to place our donation of € 20,000.00 in trustworthy hands so that it reaches directly where it is most urgently needed.
For the symbolic handover of the check, we were pleased to welcome the head of organization of the campaign Karl Bacherle as well as the campaign editor of the SWP Birgit Eberle in our premises.
