23 July 2021 - At Röhlig Logistics, "always by your side" is not just a slogan. Social responsibility is a mindset that we are constantly seeking to improve and build upon. One such aspect of social responsibility is recognising and responding to the needs of our local communities. The Röhlig Charity Program aims to build awareness of local initiatives throughout the company and our teams, as well as learn more about what concerns and inspires our colleagues.

In order to kickstart the initiative here in China, we invited our colleagues to collectively nominate a charity or organisation to recieve a donation from our local Röhlig entity. During the nomination process, our colleagues were able to share information about each charity and why their work was so impactful for members of the community.

Röhlig China donates to Heart to Heart Shanghai

Last week, Röhlig China made a donation of EUR 5000 to Heart to Heart Shanghai, a charity that seeks to support families struggling to afford corrective surgery for children with congenital heart disease. Heart to Heart was first established in 2003 and has since helped nearly 2,000 children across China access life-saving treatment, as well as providing other means of support.

Our team in Shanghai invited representatives of Heart to Heart to the Röhlig Shanghai branch for a small presentation ceremony. The discussion surrounding the donation was an opportunity for all of our teams in China to learn more about the charity's work and the challenges facing some families seeking medical treatment for their children. It is also hoped that this donation serves as the first step in raising awareness of social responsibility, in addition to promoting the importance of charity work both at Röhlig China and abroad.
