Together against the suffering of the weakest in Ukraine: Kögel and Humbaur donate 100,000 EUR to BILD hilft e.V. "Ein Herz für Kinder"

Vehicle manufacturers Humbaur GmbH and Kögel Trailer GmbH, both companies owned by Gersthofen-based entrepreneur Ulrich Humbaur, are jointly donating 100,000 EUR. The money will go to the children's aid organization BILD hilft e.V. "Ein Herz für Kinder" (A Heart for Children) and is intended to alleviate the suffering of the weakest in war-torn Ukraine.

"The terrible images from Ukraine are hardly bearable. The immeasurable suffering in the war zone in the middle of Europe affects us very deeply. Above all, it is the weakest who suffer - and these are the children. That is why we have decided to donate 100,000 EUR to the BILD hilft e.V. "Ein Herz für Kinder" association on behalf of Humbaur GmbH and Kögel Trailer GmbH," explains Ulrich Humbaur.
"Ein Herz für Kinder" supports children in Ukraine with local partner organizations and uses this money to finance, for example, the provision of food, medication, bandages and everything that protects against the cold. The association also organizes psychological help. On the other hand, "Ein Herz für Kinder" helps refugees from Ukraine who have already arrived in Germany and contributes to their care and accommodation.
