Kindernothilfe e.V. // AMURT

Together for children in need

DER Touristik Foundation continues the partnership with the children’s support organisation Kindernothilfe initiated by REWE Group

DER Touristik supports development projects around the world through its non-profit organisation, the DER Touristik Foundation e.V. One of the foundation’s ongoing projects is the creation of child protection centres in Haiti. It is an effort that is being funded with a donation of 30,000 euros, coordinated by the German group Kindernothilfe and carried out by its local partners. Last October, Hurricane Matthew cut a path of destruction through Haiti. Children were particularly hard hit by these forces of nature.
The focus of the programme called “Child-friendly spaces” (CFS) is to set up centres on the north-western coast of Haiti, a region that was battered by the storm. The CFS programme is the only relief programme that is being carried out locally after the hurricane. The centres provide children traumatised by the hurricane with emergency shelter, meals, social pedagogic support and medical care. The children can also take part in a range of leisure-time activities. About 1,400 children have been assisted thus far.

DER Touristik added to Management Board at Futouris

Cross-industry ideas for sustainable programmes

Futouris e.V., the sustainability initiative of the German tourist industry, added Ulrike Braun, the Head of Sustainability at DER Touristik, to its Management Board this spring. The mission of the initiative founded in 2009 is to protect the natural and cultural legacy of our world and to make tourism more sustainable. The group is made up of representatives from sales, the cruise ship business, destinations and major tour operators. Working together, the members of Futouris e.V. develop model projects and innovations that are designed to create more responsibility and sustainability in tourism.
Ulrike Braun, who has overseen sustainability at Germany’s second-largest travel group since 2015, is looking forward to the new job: “The tourism industry, in particular, has an important role to play. With the help of an expert-led sustainability programme, it must live up to its responsibility for people and nature in holiday destinations. The opportunity to contribute to the creation of a form of tourism that makes more economic, environmental and social sense is a personal concern to me.”
