Stuttgart / Frankfurt, 2nd December 2013 – APCOA PARKING Group continues with its tradition of making charitable X-Mas donations. This year the entire budget for Christmas presents of the Stuttgart based European market leader in parking management will go to Medico International. The organisation seated in Frankfurt will apply the donation funds to support aid projects for the victims of the recent typhoon in the Philippines.

As a corporate citizen we are absolutely dedicated to sustainable social responsibility”, Ralf Bender substantiated the support.
Medico International will employ the donation funds to back the Philippine healthcare network „Samahang Operasyong Sagip“ (SOS). The network distributes food and relief supplies in the disaster-hit areas. The organization is already also active in the restoration of the basis for life. Over the next years destroyed fishing boats and coconut palms must be replaced
Since more than forty years Medico International fights for social change as an aid and human rights organization. The aim is to not only to alleviate poverty and relieve distress, but to understand and overcome their causes. As a co-founder of the “Campaign to Ban Landmines” Medico International was awarded the Peace Nobel Prize in 1997.
