München/Helmbrechts – The Munich-based Care-for-Rare Foundation received a donation of 5,000 euros from medical technology company Raumedic. On September 25, the polymer specialist presented the donation check to the charitable organization, which has set itself the task of helping children with rare diseases. “The money assists us with a very specific project,” explains Dr. Albrecht Matthaei, Managing Director of the foundation. “It helps to support our research activities to fight against pediatric brain tumors,” Matthaei adds. This disease is one of the leading causes of death among children in Germany.

Money from in-house auctions 

In recent months, many Raumedic employees participated in various internal auctions. Thus, in the run-up to the modernization work at the company's headquarters in Helmbrechts, a number of furnishings had been auctioned off among the workforce. “We have been in contact with Care-for-Rare for quite a while and clearly stand behind the foundation’s mission to develop therapies for the treatment of rare diseases in children. So, it was obvious to donate the sum collected to this institution,” explains Dr. Thomas Ruhland, who is responsible for external networking at the Helmbrechts-based company.

Everyone can help: Campaign "Yes, we care!"

Since the fight against rare diseases often lacks public awareness in addition to financial resources, the foundation has launched the campaign “Yes, we care!”. Participation is easy. Anyone who uploads a photo of themselves with the campaign sticker at www.yes-we-care.online/en/mitmachen can easily make a contribution and help the affected children and their relatives get more attention.

About the Care-for-Rare Foundation

The Care-for-Rare Foundation is a charitable foundation founded in 2009 by Professor Dr. Christoph Klein and Professor Dr. jur. Andreas Staudacher in Ulm/Germany. According to the principle “from discovery to cure” the foundation is dedicated to the research and treatment of rare diseases in children. The current diagnostic and therapeutic options are still very limited in many rare diseases. Intensive research efforts are urgently needed to give small patients a chance to live. The Care-for-Rare Foundation builds bridges between people, cultures and sciences to help children with rare diseases. For more information about the foundation, visit www.care-for-rare.org/en.
