In good old tradition, we are again supporting a charitable project with our Christmas donation this year. This time, we chose Medizinische Nothilfe Albanien e.V., or MNA+ for short.
Founded in 1996, the association is committed to improving health care in one of the poorest countries in Europe. And it does so in two ways. Firstly, by treating, caring for and accompanying those in need of help, regardless of religion, origin or financial situation. On the other hand, through a sustainable training and further education concept, with the aim of improving the general conditions in Albania through more specialists. The main focus of the association is orthopaedics.
In 2005, for example, MNA+ opened the first non-governmental orthopaedic workshop in Albania, and in 2010 a creative and support workshop for adults with mental disabilities. In 2015, a rehabilitation centre for the care of patients and the training of OT technicians was added. All this on a donation basis, with a steadily growing number of patients. We are happy to be able to make a small contribution to this wonderful project - and wish all staff and patients a Merry Christmas.
