Doing something good for children –this extremely important guiding principle directs DIDYMOS and Managing Director Tina Hoffmann to pursue specific projects: “Unfortunately, many families, and children in particular, have limited opportunities when it comes to care and education. Consequently, we’ve long been funding a range of projects that provide them with targeted assistance.” For example, we provide financial support to institutions such as Ärzte ohne Grenzen, Aktion Sonnenschein and Menschen für Menschen, and we also supply free slings for disadvantaged families, refugees, and parents in need.
Through our association work, we’re also stepping up our efforts to promote sustainable manufacturing processes, fair wages and socially responsible working conditions throughout the textile sector.
