On June 4th, employees and management board members of the Wilh. Werhahn KG exchanged their business outfits for workwear and energetically pitched in at the Raphaelshaus. After 2017, this was the second day of active help for the Catholic support center for children and young people in Dormargen near Neuss. „When we were here for the first time, we could already see that the work never stops and that we can really make a contribution“, said Paolo Dell‘ Antonio, Werhahn’s board spokesperson. „It was immediately clear that we would return and wanted to continue – last but not least because the work in highly diverse teams was really good fun.“
Around 250 girls and boys are cared for in different semi-stationary and stationary groups, as well as in external residential units. Due to the conditions in their families of origin, they are all in urgent need of help. The goal is to give direction and perspective to the development of the children and youngsters, with a variety of educational concepts and an integrated school that also enables them to gain their secondary school certificate.
