Flood disaster: Grünenthal donates 400,000 euros as emergency relief

Grünenthal is deeply saddened by the situation of the people affected by the flood disaster. Staff and executive management have set up a relief programme to provide immediate support for people who urgently need help.

Grünenthal donated 200,000 euros as immediate support for the severely affected town of Stolberg. The company will donate an additional 200,000 euros to the coalition "Germany Helps" (Aktion Deutschland Hilft) to support nationwide measures.

"Our thoughts and solidarity are with the people in our neighbourhood in the greater Aachen region and the other affected areas," says Gabriel Baertschi, CEO Grünenthal. "We will provide unbureaucratic support to the helpers on the ground."

Grünenthal supports employees who are personally affected by the flood disaster with financial and material means and paid leave.

During the flood disaster last week, the building of Grünenthal's German sales division in Stolberg was severely damaged. Since then, all employees have been working from home and are still available for customers and patients.
