Main aim of the charity

How the employee got involved and why

“Lend a Hand to a Special Child” association which was founded by parents of children with special needs turned to us for support. With the help of thousands of volunteers and DHL Express employees we are working to change the attitude of the community towards them, and grant them the most special gift of all – an ordinary life. They heard that we have strong values and that we prefer contribute according to values and not only financial contribution.

What work does the employee do for charity?

DHL employees arrive every Monday and Thursday and help the children overcome their fears. they are doing that by visit the Dog Shelter and horses range and assist in giving the children the feeling of confidence. The children are being taught to train dogs and take care of them, Thereby fostering the understanding and the need for their own self-dependence. At the Farm there is “Therapeutic Horse Riding” that promotes the functions of people with disabilities and children with emotional issues and low self-esteem. Learning to control the horse eventually teaches the children self-control and increases their self-confidence.

What impact would winning have on the charity?

We will be able to increase the ability of the association to have more animals for Therapeutic treatment and reach more and more children with special needs. Furthermore enable more professional support at the farm and also improve their life conditions in the special houses in which they live together to support each other's needs.

What impact would winning have on the employee?

Winning will make our dreams come true and make our mission complete! giving them Values and also improve their life conditions will help us teach them that life can be a garden of roses if you will do your best and look from the right glasses
