Picture: Campaign "From Hunger to Hope"

US subsidiary participated in a joint corporate packing event

More than 75 employees of WIKA USA have packed food for children in famine regions together with their families. This was part of a campaign of “From Hunger to Hope” in the United States.

The food packages contained rice, soy, dried vegetables and a vitamin powder. For our col­leagues of the subsidiary, the team-building character of pack­ing was combined with a touching experience: the aware­ness that you can keep children alive and build up their strength with this little food. WIKA contributed to this by participating in a joint packing event of companies where 47520 meals in total were pre­pared for transport. Apart from provid­ing staff, the companies also donated money for purchasing the food, WIKA contributed 2500 dollars.
