Richard Wolf GmbH – Fundraising campaign during the 2018 soccer World Cup
(Knittlingen, Germany, June 14, 2018) As the 2018 World Cup gets underway, medical technology company Richard Wolf is launching a fundraising campaign for the KIZE children's center in Maulbronn. The medical technology company is donating EUR 250 for every goal scored by the German national team during the 2018 soccer World Cup in Russia.
Children's centre Kinderzentrum Maulbronn gGmbH is an independent not-for-profit institution. Since it was established almost 40 years ago, it has been part of the Social Welfare Service of the Protestant Churches in Württemberg. With its specialist clinic for pediatric neurology and social pediatrics as well as social-pediatric outpatient center, it is one of the leading interdisciplinary medical treatment institutions of its kind in Europe.
Its young patients have physical, cognitive, and/or psychological problems. At present, around 6,000 children and young people are treated in the outpatient clinic every year, with around 600 of them also receiving inpatient treatment. The clinic's landmarked building now requires urgent renovation – approximately EUR 9 million are needed to carry out the necessary fire protection and essential renovation work. All proceeds from the World Cup fundraising campaign will therefore go to the friends association of the KIZE, the “Christophorushilfe e.V.”.
Every goal scored by the German national soccer team will support the fundraising campaign. The management team of global medical technology company Richard Wolf are anticipating a high number of goals from the German team and therefore excellent contributions to the KIZE.
Further information and the current amount of money donated by Richard Wolf will be published on Facebook: www.facebook.com/RichardWolfDE.
