The Amazone-Group donates 10,000 Euro for ''Welthungerhilfe''
27th June 2014 saw the
official handover of a donation of 10,000 Euros by the Amazone Group to the
German charity "Welthungerhilfe". Representing Welthungerhilfe, Vera
Schernus, business co-operations consultant, received a symbolic cheque for the
donation which was handed over in Hasbergen-Gaste by Amazone director Christian
Dreyer and personnel manager René Hüggelmeier.
The basis for this donation
lay in the prize draw of a golden coloured ZA-M fertiliser spreader which was
raffled off among the visitors to Amatechnica, Amazone’s in-house field day, in
May 2014. The sale of the tickets has resulted, including a top-up contribution
by the Amazone Group, in the now donated sum of 10,000 Euros.
Welthungerhilfe will use
this donation for their "Sustainable Integrated Agriculture" project
Within this project, which
runs from mid-2014 until the end of 2017, the Amazone Group will act as an
exclusive commercial partner offering further support for it over this period.
"In addition to this initial donation here at home, Amazone will
consolidate its international social activities in this project. Also, among
the Amazone employees, there is a need to identify with this project",
personnel manager René Hüggelmeier explained as the background to this
relationship. So in order to find additional donations in the years to come,
various kinds of participations and collection events will be held and, as far
as possible, the expert competence of Amazone employees will also be integrated
into the local training courses.
The Welthungerhilfe is
one of the biggest private charity organisations in
