25,000 euro donation for hospice in Berlin-Spandau

25,000 euro donation for hospice in Berlin-Spandau.

The BMW plant in Berlin has supported the Christophorus Hospice in Berlin-Spandau with a donation of 25,000 euros made through the Karl Monz Foundation, which has close ties to the BMW Group. The money will be used to set up grief counselling for children. For more than 10 years, the hospice and its volunteers have been caring for terminally ill patients in the last phase of their lives and supporting their loved ones.

Volunteers wanted

The hospice can accommodate 15 patients in-house but is also strongly involved in out-patient care for terminally ill people. Volunteers provide both practical and emotional support th the patients and their loved ones. The hospice is always looking for more people to help. If you are interested, please contact Anne-Susanna Dreßke. The next weekend introduction workshop for new hospice volunteers takes place in September 2019.

Contact for potential new volunteers: Anne-Susanna Dreßke (a.dresske@christophorus-verbund.de, 030-209675-340)

About the Karl Monz Foundation

The Karl Monz Foundatio can trace its name back to a former board member of BMW AG, Karl Monz. It was founded in the mid-1990s to support BMW employees in need, as well as charity and healthcare institutions. The foundation primarily considers social institutions at the BMW Group’s German and international plant locations. Since its setup, it has supported more than 40 projects, with donations totaling more than one million euros.
