My entire life I have been part of the business world. Our companies are operating worldwide – I’ve come across many different people and I see that we all are faced with similar everyday problems. Already a while ago I realized that we have to help each other. From the very beginning of our business, when we were the first ones to start an industrial alpinism in the area, we were approached by many churches asking not only to lift or repair their crosses but also to help the people under their care… I could not refuse.
Over time I realized that occasional, impulsive help does not solve the problem. Charity, just like any other activity must be handled, organized, managed, i.e. systematically administered. And that is how it all started – the Foundation was born, taking over the support programs launched by our company.
Year after year I watch the Foundation grow: getting on its feet, purifying actions and priorities, gaining experience and confidence. What I see brings joy to my heart. In a way… as I also see how much more needs to be done. There are still so many indifferent, closed-off, distanced from any kind of assistance individuals and I know that no preaching nor anger will ever help.
However, setting an example can help. If I can establish and maintain a foundation, it’s exactly what I do. If you can contribute assistance in the amount of 5, 50 or 500 euro, please do so. So rather than dreaming, thinking or planning about doing it, do it! If only we all did our bit, the outcome would be… Everything would simply fall into place.
