Recognition for valuable work

The Gerhard Rosenberg Foundation donated a proud 30,600 euros to a total of 34 domestic childcare facilities. The kindergartens, family centers and primary schools were selected by the aquatherm employees: they had the opportunity to suggest the facility in which their children are cared for and to express their thanks to the educators.

The foundation, which was established by aquatherm founder Gerhard Rosenberg, has not only supported aid projects all over the world since it was founded in 2008, but has its focus, among other things, in the promotion of child and youth welfare in the region. The money – a total of around 500,000 euros to date – will mainly go to recipients in the vicinity of the three German locations of the aquatherm group of companies in Attendorn, Ennest and Radeberg.

For the second time after 2016, childcare facilities were supported. „Especially in the current time when the facilities are working restrictedly due to the Corona virus, it becomes clear how valuable their work is: Now we are really aware of the exemplary and committed manner in which the educators look after the youngsters of aquatherm employees while their parents went to work and hopefully will be able to do so again in the near future, ”explains Gerhard Rosenberg. „With the donation we want to recognize this special commitment.“
