Stuttgart, 30th November 2015 – The APCOA PARKING Group has donated a total of 10.000 Euro to action medeor e.V., Europe's largest medical aid organisation.
Rather than buying Christmas presents for its customers and employees, APCOA is supporting this charitable organisation, and its local partners, by ensuring the supply of medication and medical equipment to around 10,000 healthcare facilities in 140 countries all over the world.
In concrete terms, APCOA is financing action medeor's next delivery of medical aid to Northern Iraq. This will allow refugees in the region access to urgently needed medication and medical equipment. As a result of the hardships in the region, large numbers of people, and in particular children, suffer from health problems. The medication being delivered to health facilities in the region includes painkillers and antibiotics. Medical equipment is also being sent along with the medication.
“As a company, we recognise that we have a social responsibility. Our support of action medeor e.V. demonstrates that we are committed to fulfilling these responsibilities,” said Ralf Bender, CEO of APCOA PARKING Group. “This donation is our contribution to making sure that aid is delivered where it is most desperately needed. It will enable urgently needed medical care to reach the region's people in the midst of the current crisis situation.”
