Support to the University Rehabilitation Institute Soča

Support to the University Rehabilitation Institute Soča

We know that by connecting and giving, we can create a better world, so we decided to help children and help those in need. So we have decided to give donation to the University Rehabilitation Institute Soča, Department of Rehabilitation of Children, where they help children with various developmental disorders, the consequences of injuries and diseases of the movement and nervous system with a predominant movement disorder from birth to 15 years. The donation will help procure the necessary aids (strollers, splints, prostheses, special bicycles, communicators) needed for therapeutic programs and to prepare the children for the inclusion among their friends in kindergarten and school.

Sponsor of Football Club Slovan and Bowling Club Miklavž

We have not forgotten about sports, which are extremely important for health prevention! We recognized the efforts of two sports clubs - the one training football and one training bowling; and decided to become their sponsor. This will help them to participate in the implementation of the sports association's program.

Christmas gifting of children from socially disadvantaged families

Christmas gifting of children from socially disadvantaged families

Even though December is extremely busy for us, for four years now, on the initiative of Mrs. Romana from Koper, there has been a festive campaign of gifting children from socially disadvantaged families. Every year, many people with a good heart respond: this year they have collected as many as 50 packages for 50 children!

Our couriers then took care of the delivery of the gifts. Coordinator Jasmin takes care of the whole organization every year, so that the gifts are delivered before Christmas and they are waiting children under the Christmas tree.

Thus, our dwarf helpers bring a little festive joy to many families who can barely make ends meet from month to month, so that even the youngest ones are not left without presents. We are glad to be a part of such heartfelt projects.

Delivery of gift packages

Although the month of December is marked by significantly increased quantities of received and delivered packages, we nevertheless make an effort and come to the rescue even with small attention. We were approached by a young mother who introduced us to a group of 20 women - all of whom gave birth in September 2020, which connected them tremendously and they became a small family. They help and encourage each other.

In December, they wanted to organize a meeting, but because this was not possible, the young mother decided to surprise her friends and give them gift packages for this purpose.

We organized the delivery of packages and in our own way contributed to the surprise.

DPDgroup in support of the people of Ukraine

DPDgroup in support of the people of Ukraine

Exactly one month has passed since the invasion of Ukraine, and for a whole month now, the whole of Europe has been witnessing a great tragedy.

The situation in Ukraine has aroused strong emotions in all of us. The people of Ukraine need help, so many DPDgroup employees have already created individual and joint initiatives that would make people's lives at least a little easier.

Together with them, DPDgroup is showing its support to the people of Ukraine, with a donation of € 1 million to the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement through the French Red Cross and a donation of € 200,000 to the European Federation of Food Banks (FEBA). In addition, each donated € 1 will be matched, euro for euro, up to two hundred thousand additional euros.

With FEBA, we have created a website where everyone who wants to can donate to Ukraine. Click on the following link for support: DPD Grants Page - https://lp.eurofoodbank.org/dpd-donation-page/. You can also constantly monitor how much money we have raised so far on the website.

Donations will not only help in the collection and distribution of food, but also in the financing of charitable organizations that bring aid to the people of Ukraine.
