Donation from RailServices

02 August, 2017 [Global Care]

For the third time now, RailServices connects its customer satisfaction survey with a donation to Global Care - this year for 2,000 euros. The money will go to a kindergarten for children from waste-picker families in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, and to street children in New Delhi, India.

Assessing the performance of Knorr-Bremse RailService means not only continuously improving their service portfolio, but also doing good at the same time. One of the things that makes the RailService customer satisfaction survey unique is that a donation of five euros is made for each online questionnaire that is completed.

At the end of the survey, the customers can decide which project is to be supported. On June 26, Kathrin Moder and Tanja Mohme from RailServices presented a check for 2,000 euros to Christoph Günter, Member of the Executive Board of Global Care.

After 2014 and 2016, this is the third time that RailServices has connected its customer satisfaction survey with a donation to Knorr-Bremse Global Care. Last year's donations provided support for four Global Care projects amounting more than 3,000 euros. This year, RailServices donated another 2,000 euros to a kindergarten for children of waste-picker families in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, and to street children in New Delhi, India.

Entire families live and work on the waste dumps in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The children often have to help out and therefore cannot attend kindergarten or school. At least some of these children are given relief in a preschool and kindergarten project that allows them to "be children", to laugh and to learn through play. In addition, care is taken to ensure that they are given a balanced diet and receive medical and hygienic care.

According to rough estimates, approximately 50,000 children live on the streets of the mega city of New Delhi, India. The Don Bosco Ashalayam looks after some of these disadvantaged and particularly vulnerable children and young people. It is a place where they are not only fed, but also receive medical care, education, shelter and above all, human affection. The purpose of this institution is to restore the children's self-confidence and to open up the prospect of a safe and independent life for them.
