Once again this year, the residents and the team of the Foyer Pietert in Grevenmacher were delighted with a Doneck donation. The donation will be invested in a new fango machine and therapeutic games for the residents.
We take care

Projects we have been involved in:
Doneck already traditionally supports the commitment of the volunteer fire brigade in Grevenmacher with a cheque, to the delight of the members. Jean Kayser reported that this donation will benefit the young fire fighters.
In October – despite the Corona crisis – the medium-sized European printing ink manufacturer signed a new cooperation contract with CARE Luxembourg. Aid now goes to one of the least developed countries in the world, Chad. In Chad, 31.9% of children under 5 years are seriously malnourished and therefore also underdeveloped. CARE will improve this situation for the children in the long term with a generous donation from Doneck.
For the 1st time, the charity tournament organised by Matthias Weyer (TMS) took place at the Saarbrücken Golf Club in Wallerfangen-Gisingen. The proud sum of € 80,324 benefited various aid organisations.
The 18 physically and mentally handicapped residents and the team of the Foyer Pietert were delighted at the 5th Doneck donation in spring 2020. The Foyer Pietert was renovated and brought up to the latest standards in 2019. At the handover of the cheque, the manager, Ms Hasenritter, told us that the donation would be put to meaningful use in the area of design therapy for a roller container for musical instruments.
Doneck already traditionally supports the dedication of the Volunteer Fire Brigade in Grevenmacher with a cheque. Jean Kayser reported that the number of operations had risen considerably in 2019. The Grevenmacher & Mertert Volunteer Fire Brigade currently has 110 active members.
The new concept was developed especially for the Doneck Network.With the future support in the Jordanian refugee camp, traumatised Syrian children and families will receive psychological help and support.As refugees, they suffer from depression, uncertainty, boredom and high levels of stress. To improve this desperate situation and to offer the refugees a good perspective, CARE is offering conversation and mediation. In February 2019 the Doneck employees were able to find out about the refugee camp and the people who live there in the "Dear Syria" exhibition.
The benefit tournament for golfers in Ensch an der Mosel was organised this year for the 8th time by Matthias Weyer (TMS). Among others, the following associations benefitted from the considerable sum of €101,450: RSC Rollis Trier e.V., Jugendtreff Trier-Euren e.V., Deutscher Kinderschutzbund Trier e.V., Initiativ Liewensufank a.s.b.l. and other supraregional associations.
The Doneck Network and the Doneck Dolphins Trier are extending their name sponsorship deal by a further three years. Doneck has been supporting the team from the first division of the German Wheelchair Basketball League since 2013. The two teams meet up not only in the hall at matches. The preseason photoshoot took place on the Doneck premises in September. During a works tour, the Dolphins team were able to look behind the scenes at the printing ink manufacturer in Grevenmacher.
The "Airtrack" training mat was right at the top of the kids' wish list. Doneck was able to fulfil this wish together with a supporting family. With the help of this mat the divers can practise diving outside of the water. A total of 15 divers aged from 6 to 15 years belong to the association and train 2 or 3 times a week.
Doneck already traditionally supports the dedication of the Volunteer Fire Brigade in Grevenmacher with a cheque, to the delight of the members. Jean Kayser reported that in 2018 the team was called into action about 400 times in total (20 – 25 of these events were fires). The Grevenmacher & Mertert Volunteer Fire Brigade has a total of 120 active members.
Once again, this year the residents and team of the Foyer Pietert were delighted to receive a donation from Doneck. The house is currently being renovated and the physically and mentally handicapped residents have temporarily relocated. For that reason, no cheque handover could take place this year.
In the third year of cooperation, it has been possible thanks to CARE Luxembourg and Doneck Euroflex to set up 18 "nutrition schools" in 79 project villages in Niger. Here, malnourished children receive medical care and are nursed back to health. Here the mothers learned every day how to prepare nutritious, high-calorie meals for their children with few ingredients and the right dosage. Subsequent house visits by Care showed that the skills learnt were also being applied at home. During a visit to a hospital, medical personal gave their assurance that children whose mothers had visited the "nutrition school" by CARE had not returned to the hospital due to malnutrition.
The benefit tournament organised by Matthias Weyer (TMS) took place in Ensch an der Mosel for the 7th time. The following associations and charities benefitted from the proud sum of €101,000 raised: Trierer Tafel, Trierer Nothilfe, Förderverein Kita Köwerich-Ensch, Kinder- und Jugendhilfe Palais, Foyer Pietert and the Deutsche Kinderrheuma Stiftung Garmisch.
"The Doneck Dolphins", our 1st division wheelchair basketball team, ended the 2017/2018 season with a very good result: 3rd place in the table! We are just as the delighted as the Doneck Dolphins about this success! Since the 2015/2016 season, the Doneck Network has supported the team as a name sponsor.
This year's Doneck donation will be an investment in lifting equipment for hydrotherapy (bath) and will directly benefit the residents. There are currently 18 severely handicapped people living in the Foyer Pietert. They are cared for by dedicated carers and teachers. The facility belongs to the "Fondatioun Kräizbierg“.
Doneck Euroflex already traditionally supports the commitment of the voluntary fire brigade in Grevenmacher with a donation.
The 2017/2018 season will be the most successful one for the Doneck Dolphins Trier. With endless commitment and motivation, the team has rolled its way up onto the upper area of the table of the 1st national wheelchair basketball league. Since the 2015/2016 season, the Doneck Network has supported the team as a name sponsor.
The three-year cooperation with CARE Luxembourg a.s.b.l. starts in 2016 with the connection of two maternity hospitals in the North of Niger to the water supply. In a second step, the team from Care in Niger implemented a project for the improvement of the diet of children at primary schools.
On July 1st 2017, two pupils actively “lent a hand” for the second time at Doneck Euroflex instead of going to school. A useful campaign, as the pay for this day went as a donation to "Your day for Africa“ to support African children.
Doneck has supported the charity golf tournament with a donation right from the beginning. The organiser Matthias Weyer was able to hand over the highest donation amount so far to (€ 100,000.-) in cheques to the "Dr. Ilse Maria Ehmann Stiftung", “Verein Kinderhilfe Organtransplantation”, "Stiftung Schneekristalle", "Aline-Reimer-Stiftung", "Stiftung Ambulantes Kinderhospiz München", "Vereinigte Hospitien – Ruländer Hof" "Förderverein Kinderpfade Indien e.V.", "L'Association Luxembourgeoise pour le Spina Bifida", "Jugendwerk Don Bosco Trier" and the "Förderverein krebskranker Kinder Trier e.V."
The donation for the 18 people aged between 20 and 55 with physical and mental handicaps was welcomed by the health care professionals and educators alike. The facility would like to invest in a useful acquisition for the direct benefit of the residents. The bicycle with the motor we donated (2014) is now used far more frequently and for longer distances.
The voluntary fire brigades of Grevenmacher and Mertert have now joined into one. With the cheque it has handed over, Doneck Euroflex wishes to support this voluntary organisation.
1st Participation in "dayCare" – a Care Luxembourg campaign. Four trainees and pupils from the region will be taking a look “over the shoulder” of the Doneck team in the company on 26.10.2016".
Doneck is donating the new panther chameleon "Jack" to replace the stolen one "Freddy" in the Grevenmacher butterfly garden. So another attraction has now moved into the terrarium.
As in previous years, Doneck is again supporting the Charity Golf Tournament with a donation. The organiser Matthias Weyer was able top hand over the highest donation amount (€ 72,295.-) in the form of cheques to the “Lion Heart Foundation”, “Sven hilft e.V.”, “Treffpunkt am Weidengraben” and the “Demenz-Zentrum Trier”.
On May 28th 2016, two pupils actively “lent a hand” at Doneck Euroflex instead of going to school. The pay for this day goes as a donation to educational projects in five African countries - Burundi, Rwanda, South Africa, Uganda and the Ivory Coast - and will be used for adolescents of the same age.

Our wheelchair basketball team, the "Doneck Dolphins", close the 2015/2016 season with an excellent 4th place. The name sponsor is extremely proud of this success in the 1st national wheelchair league!
The Doneck Network is the new title sponsor of the Doneck Dolphins Trier for the 2015 to 2020 season. We have enhanced the partnership, which began as a shirt sponsor two years ago. We hereby support a successful, regional team in the first wheelchair basketball league.
Just like we did last year we donate to this year's charity golf tournament. The organizer Matthias Weyer will be presenting cheques to Tafel Trier, Hospiz Trier e.V., Beschützerinstinkte e.V. and autisme a.s.b.l. Luxembourg.
The "Gréiwemaacher Pompjeeën" was pleased to receive a donation in return for their actions on 06 August 2014. This will be invested in the development of volunteer fire departments in the eastern region of Luxembourg and benefits many defences in the region. Through their exemplary work it has been possible to avoid major damage.
Record donations at this year’s golf tournament: Thanks to generous donations, the managers were able to present cheques to the Deutsche Kinderrheuma Stiftung (foundation for paediatric rheumatism), Auryn Trier (an organisation helping children with parents affected by mental illness), Mobile Spielaktion Konz (mobile campaign promoting creativity for children) and the Jugendwerk Don Bosco Trier (youth welfare establishment).
For the first time ever, the Dolphins’ youth teams were able to roll out onto the court in professional jerseys. Sponsored by the Doneck Network, the two-tone reversible jerseys were a big surprise to everyone. They will be worn at all the young athletes’ games and practice sessions, and are sure to attract a lot of attention.
Trier’s wheelchair basketballers were faced with a difficult situation before the start of the national league season: the jersey sponsor who had been signed well in advance bailed out at short notice, creating a large hole in the very tight budget. We helped the club, and will be supporting the successful wheelchair basketballers as a jersey sponsor starting from the 2013/2014 season in what will be an extraordinary partnership.
Foyer Pietert is home to people aged 16-53 with physical and mental disabilities requiring 24/7 care. Half of them are there as a result of accidents, while the other half have been living with a disability since birth. Foyer Pietert is distinguished by its homely atmosphere and very close contact between residents and nursing staff. Our donation helped convert the in-house bicycle into an e-bike, making bike rides in the surrounding area easier.
