The CiS group, which specializes in cable assembly, with headquarters in Krefeld and production sites in the Czech Republic and Romania, has been running a social and humanitarian aid project for many years.
"Inspired by intensive discussions with the founder of Andheri-Hilfe and honorary senator of the Senate of Economy, Mrs. Rosi Gollmann, we became aware of the extensive work of the Andheri - aid organization. We are very pleased that we have been able to give sight to more than 300 blind people over the years," says CiS Group CSR officer Doris Wöllner.
The Andheri - Hilfe Bonn e.V. www.andheri-hilfe.de has been organizing numerous humanitarian projects in India and Bangladesh for many years. Bangladesh is one of the poorest countries in the world. It is estimated that around 700.000 blind people live there and many from them are children. Every year, tens of thousands of people are newly blinded because of a lack of medical care and education. In the rural areas, where doctors and hospitals are missing, mobile ophthalmic teams travel to the sick people. These people get examined and treated – and directly operated if necessary or in the hospital.
Currently the Corona pandemic still keeps the whole world in suspense. Right now the people need our help in their fight of survival. With this aid project we can provide help to the poorest family’s fast and specific – for survival and a new start!
CiS has been supporting this project since 2014, so that every week a blind child or its parents regain their sight through a "cataract operation". So far, well over one million eye operations have been made possible by donations, which Mrs. Gollmann collects with extraordinary commitment.
Although Mrs. Gollmann is a very modest personality, it should be mentioned that her life's work has been honored with many awards, such as the Bundesverdienstkreuz am Bande, the the Papal Order „Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice“, the Bundesverdienstkreuz 1. Klasse, the „Luise-Rinser-Preis, the Große Bundesverdienstkreuz and the WDR-Kinderrechtepreis and many more.
