A special donation in the luggage of the Langenwolschendorfer
Jena / Langenwolschendorf
Members of the fire brigade hand over 970 euros to the Jena children’s clinic
Every year there is a stand of the members of the Langenwolschendorf volunteer fire department at the Christmas market in Langenwolschendorf. A guessing game was always organized here. The firefighters then donated half of the income from this to the neuropediatrics department at the University Hospital in Jena and half to their own youth service in the village. But that’s not enough, additional donations are also collected. Last year everything was different due to the corona. A Christmas market could not take place, but donations were still collected by the Langenwolschendorfer fire department members. The willingness of citizens and local companies to donate remained unbroken. Therefore, despite the adverse circumstances, they quickly collected money for a good cause.
Money goes to little patients
After all, the money is intended to improve the stay of the youngest patients in neuropediatrics (development and diseases of the nervous system) at the Jena University Hospital (UKJ). At the beginning of January, two fire brigade members, Alexander Wilhelm and Mario Hoffmann, were able to hand over a donation of 970 euros. “Thanks to this donation, our youngest neurological patients on ward E330 will soon be able to look forward to a new music system and many CDs with music, audio books and certainly one or two fire department stories. We are touched by so much commitment and inventiveness and would like to thank everyone who made this donation possible, ”says Kerstin Pechmann, head of nursing at Jena University Hospital.
