"My family and I have very close ties with the district of Tuttlingen, not only in business but also in our private lives, which is why we would like to give something back, especially in these difficult times. Unfortunately, due to current contact restrictions, I cannot personally hand over our donation to the Tuttlingen Women's Shelter and thus thank the association for its great work in and around Tuttlingen. It is hard for me to imagine what it is like to experience violence within your own home and I am all the more grateful that the women's shelter offers those affected a place of refuge, a sympathetic ear and support in finding their way back to a self-determined and violence-free life. The association has existed for almost 30 years. Nevertheless, I am sure that, especially in this special year, it was and is more than ever a firm anchor for women and children affected by violence. We are very grateful to the association for its commitment and hope to be able to support its important work with this donation," says Christian Leibinger, President and CEO of the KLS Martin Group.
The donations will be used in particular for quick and unbureaucratic help for children and women, as well as for the purchase of necessary equipment or the implementation of special activities, such as excursions, theater visits or similar, as soon as this is possible again.
