The SOS Children's Village in Zwickau was once again close to our hearts in our anniversary year 2022. Instead of a sea of flowers, we wanted our anniversary guests and well-wishers to make a donation to the SOS Children's Village in Zwickau. The amount collected makes us speechless and happy at the same time. On 20th of July 2022, Dr. Illing-Günther, Managing Director, as well as Berit Lenk and Kareen Pfab from the Public Relations team visited the Children's Village and handed the 6.930 € donation to Susann Pohle, head of the Children's Village, and Berthold Grenz. The money will be used to support the research station and the Children's Village's own bee project.
