10,000 Euro for education about congenital immunodeficiencies

"Donations instead of presents": Süddeutsche Gelenkscheibenfabrik GmbH & Co. KG give a donation check to dsai e. V. Patients' Organization for Congenital Immunodeficiencies

Schnaitsee/Waldkraiburg, February 3, 2015 – Years ago the Süddeutsche Gelenkscheibenfabrik GmbH & Co. KG (SGF) decided to no longer give customers and business partners Christmas presents and to instead donate a sum of money to a social organization in the region. In 2014 the chosen organization was the Patients' Organization for Congenital Immunodeficiencies. V., dsai.

The two SGF presidents, Robert Hapfelmeier and Michael Weikert, have now presented the chairwoman of dsai, Gabriele Gründl, with a check for 10,000 Euro. They explained the choice of dsai, saying, "Rare diseases do not fit into the scheme of our health system. The lobby for these patients is not as large as is needed and desired, so we are all the more happier to be able to make a contribution to dsai's work with our donation."

"This donation helps us enormously in continuing and intensifying our educational work," says Gabriele Gründl. The dsai is dedicated to helping people with congenital immunodeficiency, with its main objectives being early diagnosis and appropriate therapy for all affected. According to experts' estimates, some 100,000 people in Germany suffer from a congenital immunodeficiency, but only 3,500 patients have been diagnosed.
