Bauer and MBDA employees fulfill Christmas wishes

Schrobenhausen, Germany – The festive season reaches its glittering climax on December 24th. Many of us look forward to spending this special time around Christmas with our families. However, these days are not characterized by contemplative moments and security for everyone. Young mothers in particular, who find themselves in difficult life situations, often experience a time of challenges and uncertainty. There can be many reasons for this, from early pregnancies and violence to traumatic experiences or inadequate family support.

The “Alte Mühle” in Waidhofen near Schrobenhausen not only offers these women a protected space, but also a therapeutic inpatient mother-child clearing service that helps the residents to overcome their traumas and discover their personal strengths. The facility, run by A.p.e. Familienhilfe in Hettenshausen, acts as a place of retreat, safety and hope, where women not only receive support, but also the opportunity to rebuild their lives. And yet the Christmas season is anything but easy for the residents of the “Alte Mühle” due to their situation.

In order to give them, as well as many other clients who receive outpatient care from A.p.e. Familienhilfe (including numerous families and young people), a little joy this year, the employees of BAUER AG and MBDA Deutschland GmbH fulfilled numerous wishes as part of a Christmas tree campaign. Together they collected over 250 parcels. The wishes ranged from board games and doll clothes to picture books and teaching materials.

"In times like these, it becomes clear how important it is to stick together as a community and stand by those who need support," emphasized Bauer Executive Board Member Peter Hingott (right in the picture) at the handover on 19 December. "Personally, the generosity of the employees fills me with great gratitude. Their donations are not just material gifts, but also a message of solidarity and compassion.”

"Sometimes there are situations in young people's lives that cannot be overcome without support. A.p.e. supports those seeking help with exemplary commitment. The donations from our colleagues are an expression of our appreciation for the good work of A.p.e. and its solidarity with the residents of ‘Alte Mühle’," says Marc Zizmann, Member of the Management Board of MBDA Germany. Special thanks also go to Christina Biebel (2nd from right) from BAUER AG and Michaela Bichler and Michaela Siegl from MBDA, who initiated and organized these unique wishing tree campaigns and thus made many eyes light up."
