INSTEAD OF CHRISTMAS PRESENTS - WE ARE HELPING OUR REGION

INSTEAD OF CHRISTMAS PRESENTS - IN 2019 WE SUPPORTED AGAIN SOCIAL PROJECTS IN OUR REGION

Donations instead of Christmas presents we join!
We would like to thank all our customers and partners for the great and trustful cooperation in the fiscal year 2019. Instead of giving non-cash gifts to our loyal customers, we are again involved regionally and donate the money to »IGEL« – the »Interessengemeinschaft Gesundes Leben e. V.«. Our donation was already handed over to »IGEL e. V.« before Christmas by the management – we are pleased that so many social projects can continue to be supported locally.

Do you know the »IGEL e. V.« from Barnstorf?
The »Interessengemeinschaft Gesundes Leben e.V.« (Interest Group for Healthy Living), or IGEL e.V. for short, was established in 1989 with the aim of advocating a patient-oriented health care system, demanding health as a value and promoting holistic health care. As a non-profit association, IGEL e.V. does not belong to any political party or religious community.

The IGEL e.V. is an independent, social meeting place, advice and service centre. It is constantly developing its main areas of work and thematic tasks. It deals with topics that promote the quality of life and well-being. It wants to act across generations and help shape the demographic change.

The IGEL e.V. is the responsible body for the projects: Mehrgenerationenhaus Barnstorf (multi-generation living), with the coordination office of the Local Alliance for Family, KIBIS self-help contact point, cancer advice centre, volunteer agency, patient office, senior citizens' service office, Casinos Intercultural with the coordination office for integration work, and the IGELBANDE crèche.

The employees take on extensive tasks throughout the district: Advice on various health issues, strengthening of patients' rights, exhibitions, information events, founding and support of self-help groups, child care during holidays, promotion of voluntary work, health meeting, working groups on health policy issues, cross-cultural and cross-language projects, care and support of people from all social, cultural and linguistic backgrounds, health courses in the IGEL e.V. premises in Barnstorf.
