A Matter of the Heart with Zwerg Nase

For many years, VITRONIC has supported a unique center for children in Germany called “Zwerg Nase” in Wiesbaden. It is more than “just” a nursing facility for children and young adults with severe disabilities — it is their home.

Up to 84 young residents live there and receive not only medical care, but are also cared for in a warm family environment by loving caregivers. “At the beginning of 2020, we were able to experience in person the wonderful and committed staff, who are fully dedicated to the well-being of those in their care,” says Matthias Pörner, CFO of VITRONIC. The personal invitation from Zwerg Nase’s director Sabine Schenk to visit the home brought about feelings of compassion and solidarity.

Sicherheit und Gemeinschaft gehen Hand in Hand

“A family community is just as important to us as day-to-day safety—for our projects and in our daily interactions,” says Matthias Pörner. VITRONIC’s mission is to make the lives of people everywhere simpler and safer through the use of modern and sophisticated technology in the most varied industries—from Logistics and Healthcare to Traffic Technology. For over 35 years.

Community is not only extremely important within the family-run company, but also in partnerships that go beyond the context of business.

These values that we live by go beyond daily business in the workplace. We want to help the Zwerg Nase center purchase the equipment that is most important for the young residents

For this reason, the technology company is donating emergency carts needed to ensure everyday safety. They are equipped with a wide variety of medications and can save lives in precarious situations. Furthermore, the center will receive two new cozy corners for special moments of fellowship. These corners are places for residents of Zwerg Nase and their caregivers to read books, laugh, and play together. In the cozy corners, the children can let go and enjoy a sense of community.
