In November 2021, our assistant to the management, Caroline Sophie Liebing, received the offer to donate a larger amount of FFP-2 masks for our projects in Africa at a meeting of the Hamburg Wirtschaftsjunioren. We gladly accepted this offer.
We knew about the construction of a hospital near our school project in the north of Togo by the Greifswald entrepreneur couple Prof. Dagmar and Norbert Braun. The joy was great when we were able to offer 10,000 FFP-2 masks from the company Fagron from Glinde near Hamburg for the initial installation of the Hospital Braun in Cinkassè (HBC).
Statement by Caroline Sophie Liebing:
“I am extremely pleased that the 10,000 FFP-2 masks have been put to good use at Dapaong Hospital. The big thanks goes to the network of the Hamburger Wirtschaftsjunioren through which the contact to the donating Fagron GmbH in Glinde came about. It was nice to see how quickly and easily this volunteer organization can bring Hamburg players from different industries into contact with each other.
At the same time, this fundraising campaign shows the agile Cooperation between the Peter Krämer Foundation and the Hospital Braun Cinkassé, which hopefully leads to a long-term good development of the Dapaong region in northern Togo. For this I wish all participants much success and joy in the common work.”
Since a delivery of beds and medical equipment by container from the Port of Hamburg was pending, it was only a small effort to bring the mask delivery on the way to Togo. Weeks later, the masks could be handed over to the hospital and caused great joy among the local medical staff.
On the occasion of our school opening in the village of Nanergou on 1 April 2022, Christian Krämer and Tilo Braune also visited hospital Braun. They were able to convince themselves of the usefulness of the donation and the benefits especially for the surgical field. We believe that this cooperation describes a beautiful practice of mutual support in projects of this kind, which will certainly find imitators.
