VAHLE once again does without customer gifts at Christmas. Instead, the Kamen-based company is handing over a donation of 3,500 euros to the Wish Car Westfalen of the Arbeiter-Samariter-Bund RV Münsterland e.V. (ASB). With the vehicle stationed in Münster, the ASB regional association Münsterland has been fulfilling a travel wish for seriously ill people throughout the Westphalia region since 2018.

"TheChristmas season offers a very good opportunity to think of fellow human beings who are facing a particularly difficult time and can use all the help they can get," says Achim Dries, CEO of Paul Vahle GmbH & Co. KG. For example, many people in their final phase of life long to visit a particular destination once again or to see beloved friends and family members again.

That's why the Arbeiter-Samariter-Bund has the "Wünschewagen" (wish car), which takes seriously ill people to their place of longing. "We would like to support this fascinating and purely voluntary commitment as part of our Christmas donation this year," Dries describes.

The Westphalian ASB Wish Car is stationed in Münster. The vehicle is a converted ambulance equipped with all the necessary aids and medical equipment. Trained rescue and nursing personnel are on board during the trips to ensure that the transport is as safe as possible. The service is free of charge for passengers and accompanying persons. "With our financial support for this predominantly donation-supported project, we want to help make special wishes come true for seriously ill people in our region," explains the managing director.

The donation sum is made up of a company share as well as an amount from the staff's social fund.
