Flender allows 800 vaccines to fight polio

Last week, the Flender Juniorenkreis, an in-house talent development program, handed over the 80.000 lid to beverage bottles to the association "Deckel drauf eV" for the Rotary initiative "End Polio Now". The association had called in his project "cover against polio" to donate the plastic lid. The collected lids are recycled in order to use the proceeds to finance vaccinations against poliomyelitis (polio). For each 500 lid a vaccination can be paid. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has joined the Rotary Initiative and tripled the number of vaccinations. The Flender GmbH has also agreed to triple the collective success of the junior circle to the same extent. Thus 80.000 vaccinations against polio could be obtained from the 800 lids. At the Flender locations, collecting containers were set up for this purpose. For one year, employees from all sectors brought their lids to the collection points. Polio is a poliovirus-induced infectious disease that has affected hundreds of thousands of children every year in the 80 years. Today the disease occurs only in three countries. However, all children worldwide are at risk, as long as only one child is ill. Therefore, it is important that all countries become and remain polio-free. This requires massive and large-scale vaccination measures. Therefore, each cover counts.

"Time is running away": Citizens and traders are putting pressure on city renewal

And time is running away ", said one participant of the information event integrated action concept for the city center last night in the foyer of the town hall. Several times the demand was loud, not so much to plan and talk, but finally to get started and act. Repairing small items such as crumbling benches, cleaning lanterns strewn with bird droppings, removing graffiti or setting up ashtrays could already be done without any problems, it was said. Town Planning Officer Daniel Zöhler promised to take care of it. The public is under pressure. For five years ago there had been a similar concept of action.
