Our commitment towards society

As a global company, we aim to leave a mark in every community where we pitch our tent and to give a helping hand to developing regions around the world.

 

We do not hesitate to give back to society, to be among the first to support during environmental or pandemic crises, and to contribute to a better future for children suffering from poverty around the world.

 

Here is a glimpse into our sustainability journey and the related initiatives around the world:

Phone donation initiative

The Phone Donation Initiative is a global initiative in which our branches around the world have participated. This particular project stems from the need to preserve the environment and to take care of humanity as best we can. In association with Missio, an international missionary society, D.med participated in the phone collection project.

By recycling valuable raw materials from old cell phones, there is a reduction in mining activities and child labour. In addition to this, part of the profits received by Missio from the donation of cell phones goes to the Schutzengel campaign to help families in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The response to the donation box placed in our offices was positive. This is because the well-being of both humans and the environment matter to us at D.med.

Supporting SOS-Kinderdorf Weltweit

For years, D.med has been in partnership with SOS-Kinderdorf Weltweit, to sponsor medical care projects in Zimbabwe. In addition, we have been supporting different child sponsorships in Costa Rica and Vietnam.

With a monthly payment, we help provide stable and consistent care for children who cannot stay with their biological families.

Donating to flood victims

Düsseldorf plays an important role in our history. This is where many of our businesses started from, and today the city hosts one of our global headquarters.

In July 2021, a community just 70 km from Düsseldorf lost lives and property due to a devastating flood that ravaged the region.

In the wake of this tragedy, we immediately responded to Aktion Deutschland Hilft’s call for support in building up the affected areas.

Supporting Ukrainian refugees

We are very proud to see our staff joining our company’s efforts to provide support to Ukrainian refugees.

Our team members in Germany and other regions have helped Ukrainian refugees in many different ways: by making donations, organizing shelter, and providing other assistance like accompanying refugees to medical appointments and to different authorities. We are very proud of each one of them!

For example, Darja, one of our colleagues from our headquarters in Düsseldorf, who with her family spontaneously decided to accommodate refugees from Kyiv.

Until the end of this devastating war, we – as a company and as individuals – pledge to continue to do what we can, in order to help those facing hardship in light of this terrible humanitarian crisis.
