BÖHME & WEIHS SUPPORTS THE “AKTION LICHTBLICKE” CAMPAIGN
Böhme & Weihs donates 2,500 € to the Corona aid section of the Aktion Lichtblicke campaign. The “Let’s fight Corona together” program initiated by the association provides targeted support for families with children which, through no fault of their own, have slipped into a situation where their existence is now under threat as a result of the Corona crisis. In many cases, this concerns families and single parents who are mini-jobbers, freelancers or self-employed, or currently receiving reduced hours compensation, and who, as a result, are no longer able to cover their running costs – despite the aid packages offered by the state.
Since 1998, the Aktion Lichtblicke e.V. association has been supporting children, young people and their families throughout NRW who are in material, financial or emotional need. The campaign was initiated by NRW’s 45 local radio stations, the overarching radio NRW program, the Caritas associations of the five NRW dioceses and the “Diakonie Rheinland-Westfalen-Lippe” social welfare organization. This registered association is particularly concerned with the needs of those members of our society who are weak and disadvantaged and who have no lobby to voice their concerns. It is primarily children who suffer the most when their families find themselves facing hardship.
