The DPD Foundation is created from the DPD Aid Fund for our own employees.
The aim of the DPD Foundation is to promote a world in which children, young adults and their families do not suffer from poverty and can develop in conditions of health and freedom.
The activities of the DPD Foundation focus on three areas:
The DPD Aid Fund integrated into the foundation helps employees, system partners and delivery personnel who suddenly find themselves in need through no fault of their own.
Trainees are actively involved as sponsors and are in contact with children from Africa, Asia and Latin America via the cooperation partner Plan International.
Support for charitable projects through Plan International and other partners. Since 2016 DPD has been supporting a project in Rwanda which promotes early childhood education and creates new future prospects.
Employees can find themselves in a sudden emergency situation through no fault of their own - the DPD Aid Fund provides help!
