Amann Girrbach presents a check over EUR 17,000 to the Cleft Kinderhilfe

Philanthropy, Charity and Volunteering

A check to the amount of EUR 17,000 was presented by Amann Girrbach CFO Jörg Mayer to the representative of the Austrian Cleft Kinderhilfe, Stephanie Günther. The dental technology company has already been supporting the initiative for medical aid for children suffering from a cleft lip and palate since 2018. In a joint initiative of the employees and the Management of Amann Girrbach, a further contribution was made at the turn of the year 2022/23 to enable chil-dren in a total of twelve project countries to receive surgery and thus have a future.

The dental technology company Amann Girrbach has been supporting the Cleft Kinderhilfe since 2018 in Germany as well as in Austria since 2019, and has already initiated several fundraising campaigns, in several cases together with dealers and customers. As part of a Christmas raffle by employees and with the support of the company's top management, a further donation check has now been handed over: at the turn of the year 2022/23, the proud sum of EUR 17,000 was donated to the Austrian Cleft Kinderhilfe. "We are very pleased to be able to give something back to society in 2022/23 as well. It is important to us that we make our contribution and actively live commitment. Since we began our sup-port for the German and Austrian Cleft Kinderhilfe, numerous surgical interventions and therapies have already been made possible," says Jörg Mayer, CFO of Amann Girrbach.

Stephanie Günther from the Board of the Austrian Cleft Kinderhilfe, who herself is also an employee at Amann Girrbach, was delighted with the generous donation. "I'm doubly happy, so to speak - I'm de-lighted to receive this fantastic donation check for something that is very close to my heart, and at the same time I'd like to thank my colleagues and our Management for their great commitment. We can really make a big difference with this. To give an example - in the years 2020 to 2022, more than 150 children were helped thanks to Amann Girrbach. After difficult and sometimes rather paralyzing times due to the pandemic, it is wonderful to be able to get back on track and give as many children as pos-sible the prospect of a future. After all, this is not a mere cosmetic correction, but often a matter of sur-vival for the affected children."

About the Austrian Cleft Kinderhilfe

The Austrian Cleft Kinderhilfe was founded in 2019 as a partner organization of the German Cleft Kinderhilfe. More than 250 local physicians and therapists in twelve countries are working to provide professional medical care for children with a cleft lip and palate. Cleft lip and palate is one of the most common congenital malformations worldwide. In many countries, the affected children live on the fringes of society and struggle with stigmatization and major health problems, some of which are life-threatening. The principal treatment procedure is surgery to close the cleft. In the project countries, costs for the surgical procedure average EUR 300. Thanks to the Cleft Kinderhilfe, affected children and their families are given the prospect of a life in health and dignity.
