DB Schenker supports Mexico’s reconstruction after the earthquake
The Mexican Community at DB Schenker in Germany have launched a fundraising campaign to support the people who were severely affected by the earthquake that hit Mexico City in September 2017.
The campaign aims to raise funds to support the reconstruction of a retirement home in Mexico City, which had been damaged during the earthquake. The elderly residents currently have no roof over their heads. It is therefore necessary that their home is rebuilt as soon as possible.
The fundraising campaign will run till December 1st, 2017. YOU CAN JOIN IT!

Subway supports people affected by the Nepal earthquake
When she saw the images of the destruction created by the 2015 earthquake in Nepal, and the need of the people there, Kerstin Brülle, 43, manager of the Paderborn Subway branch, wanted to help however she could. Her idea was to donate one week's worth of takings from her store to help the survivors. A friend of hers had four large signs made for the windows of the store: "We are donating our turnover to the earthquake victims of Nepal". The response from employees and customers was immense.
"I get up every day and I feel good -it pains me to think that you could see people in need like they were in Nepal, and not do what you can to help them," Kerstin said. At the end of the week, she was able to present Malteser International with a cheque for more than 22,000 euros for rebuilding efforts in Nepal - allowing people in the earthquake region to have a roof over their heads once again, and helping to keep the Malteser International field hospital open to provide medical care for people in the villages.
