Organizing Help for Flood Vicitims

Hochschule Geisenheim University is coordinating professional support for the "green sector" in cooperation with partners and sponsors and the Geisenheim Alumni Association (VEG)

In order to support businesses in the wine, horticulture and landscaping sectors in restoring their livelihoods, many helping hands are needed, also beyond the next weeks. With the campaign "Geisenheim hilft", Geisenheim students, alumni and university members would like to provide practical help in coping with the flood disaster, with the focus on the Ahr Valley.

To ensure uncomplicated and efficient support, a pool of volunteers from Geisenheim will be organized to help out in the vineyards, gardens, basements and businesses. Volunteers will receive 10 euros per hour and have insurance coverage. Transport and accomodation will also be organized. The initiative was kicked off by a joint donation of Sibylle Fraund and a foundation at Hochschule Geisenheim University totalling 60,000 euros.

Please make a donation to help increase the pool of volunteers:
