Kassel-based energy company donates €10,000 to the non-profit association IntensivLeben e.V.
Kassel. With a donation of €10,000, WINGAS is once again supporting a regional aid project this year in Kassel, where the energy company is based. The non-profit association IntensivLeben e.V. is devoted to helping seriously ill children, adolescents and young adults who are dependent over the long term on intensive care equipment for life support and its 24-hour monitoring by qualified staff, and who need a permanently high level of care.
“Social commitment, especially to children and young people, has always been a concern for WINGAS. With this year’s New Year’s donation, we want to support and facilitate the valuable and important work of the IntensivLeben association and the people involved in it,” says Nicholas Neu, Head of Corporate Communications at WINGAS. “We chose the project very specifically, since the permanently high level of care required and providing care in a difficult environment demand a huge amount of effort.”
“The main focus of our work is on the well-being of the patients and also their families, who often feel left alone in this challenging situation,” as Christine Wagner-Behrendt from the association’s counseling center explains. “We support the families through counseling, also specifically in dealing with service providers, authorities or health insurance companies – and sometimes also through direct financial support, if something important is lacking.”
