We put a smile on children’s faces. That is the promise of the Quadkinder Rheinland / Niederrhein.
This particularly refers to the kids who are not on the sunny side of life, who sometimes go through serious illnesses or who have to endure handicaps. Quad, ATV, UTV and buggy drivers are regularly on the road to spend a few nice hours with the families concerned and also to offer car-rides on the four-wheelers. For many a highlight and a change, for example in everyday hospital life.
The helpers always bring donated gifts and “goodies” with them. Unfortunately, due to the corona situation and the associated requirements, they were unable to hold any events or attend any festivals last year. Visits to the houses were also difficult if not impossible. “But we still collected donations for the facilities that look after sick children and children with disabilities,” says co-organizer Thomas Endiger. The Quadkinder handed over several boxes with the donations to the chairwoman of the parents’ initiative for children with cancer in Sankt Augustin eV (EKKK), Manuela Melz. These are intended for your “Silver Island” and the ward of the Sankt Augustin children’s clinic. Quadwelt has also asked its customers to support the motto “We’ll put a smile on children’s faces – I promise!”. The company MAXXIS and again the company BOHNENKAMP complied with this request and made a number of giveaways available. “Thank you very much to all donors, on behalf of the children and the EKKK,” said Thomas at the handover.
