Kurt Steinwender from the maierhofer surgical appliance retailer in Klagenfurt presented a cheque in the amount of €4,100.92 to Christoph Schmitz, medi for help project leader, at the medi Austria Orthopaedics and Footcare symposium in April.
CEO of maierhofer GmbH Kurt Steinwender:
“Social thinking and social behaviour are inherent elements of our company’s culture. We have been partnering with medi for help now for many years – they’re doing fantastic work in Haiti to give people in need direct help on the island. Thanks to our CPOs working in Haiti for several weeks and our donation campaign, the generous support of our clients and employees has enabled us to make a contribution.”
medi for help has already cared for over 6,250 Haitians since the project was launched. Every Euro donated to medi for help is channelled into the relief projects to make sure that the Haitians are provided with lower limb prostheses, among other things, to empower them to rebuild and secure their existence.
