TLT-Turbo GmbH today announced that their Bad Hersfeld site have donated 1.500€ for the nursing staff at the Klinikum Hersfeld Hospital’s Covid-19 intensive care unit. The intention behind the donation is to show support to these nurses who have worked tirelessly to see the local community through the Covid-19 pandemic and to provide the funds needed to ensure that they take some time out for themselves.
The funds were donated by TLT-Turbo Bad Hersfeld and were handed over by Site Manager, Christian Kosack, on 15th December 2021 at Klinikum Hersfeld.
“As part of our annual budget, we allocate a certain amount to giving back to this community that surrounds our operation. Today’s donation amounts to half of our annual budget which we specifically allocated to those who have been on the frontline of fighting the pandemic. It was important to us that these funds directly to the nursing staff instead of the hospital. We believe that the ICU nursing staff deserve not only the funds handed over, but also to be recognised by businesses in the community for all that they have done,” said Kosack.
The funds were handed over to Frank Heenes, Ward Manager of the Intensive Care Unit 1 of the Klinikum Bad Hersfeld and will be used to host a special summer event for the intensive care unit staff. “Our intention was that the staff benefit directly from the donation and that the funds be used to somehow honour them. This is our way of thanking them for their valuable and exhausting work and to be able to give something directly back to them,” Kosack explains.
