Every year at Christmas, we donate to a non-profit organization that works against social ills or for the common good. Motivated and initiated by the personal commitment of our senior partner and recruitment consultant Michael Splitt - who specializes in the healthcare sector - our donation for the year 2022 went to the "Tommy nicht allein" project. Especially the reports of the last weeks about the staffing conditions in our German children's hospitals have made us very concerned. Particularly now in the Christmas season, it seems important to us to make a contribution so that the smallest members of our society feel more comfortable during their stay in hospital. The mobile cinema system purchased with our donation will be used in the children's hospital in Greifswald.
7 years ago, medical students noticed a child crying heavily in the hospital. Tommy was just 6 months old at the time. The students spent time with him and noticed that he was actually a happy and upbeat child. That was the birth of the project. Since then, more than 130 children suffering from cancer or chronic diseases have already been taken care of.
The so-called "clinic nannies" look after the children on a voluntary basis and use their free time to relieve the little ones as well as their parents in terms of time and emotion. In the process, every third child is cared for almost every day, and in some cases for years. They try to alleviate the children's suffering by playing, reading and laughing together.
If you would also like to support this important work, you can find out more and donate on the "Tommy nicht allein" website.
