GeneSys Elektronik GmbH donates 5,000 euros to the “Förderverein Pflasterstube Offenburg e.V.”. The donation will benefit the “Pflasterstube” and the “Pflastermobil”, which supports homeless people in the Ortenau district who are in urgent need of medical care.
This is GeneSys’ second donation to the Pflasterstube; in 2019 we had already made a donation of 5,000 euros. The Pflasterstube caught Dr. Bertold Huber’s eye on his way to work. “I have been walking past St. Ursulaheim every day for the past year and a half,” Dr. Huber said at the time. This is also the headquarters of the Förderverein Pflasterstube, to which the Pflastermobile also belongs. ” We have a strong connection to the region and the university has always been a nucleus for us, as many of our engineers are graduates of the Offenburg University of Applied Sciences,” Dr. Huber continues. That’ s why we want to support an organization in the region with our donation.
The ” Förderverein Pflasterstube im St. Ursulaheim Offenburg e.V. ” was founded on 18.10.2007 and is unique in Baden Württemberg for the rural area with its Pflastermobil, a converted mobile home. It enables mobile medical care in the countryside for sick, uninsured, homeless people in the Ortenaukreis. Every week, the volunteers – general practitioners, a dentist, nurses and caregivers – are on the road in Offenburg, Kehl and Lahr to provide medical assistance. This assistance annually costs the support association more than 100,000 euros and is financed exclusively by donations. “We rely urgently on such donations” says Dr. Axel Richter. The generous donation from GeneSys goes directly into medical work, which includes the Pflastermobil. But according to Dr. Richter, medicine is not the only thing the needy are provided with. Above all, glasses are important so that “a person affected can read the newspaper again and have conversations with him about what he has read,” says Dr. Richter.
