In the spring of 2022, shock news reached the world: war in Ukraine.
Due to the close ties between stela Laxhuber GmbH and Ukraine, which have always existed through family, customers and local employees, it quickly became clear that stela had to help.
Within a few days of the start of the war, a working group of employees was formed and the "Ukraine Humanitarian Aid Campaign" was born. The orga-team dealt with direct contact to the Ukraine, collection of relief goods from companies in the vicinity, transport organizations and later the establishment of an own collection point. Here, a freight container was placed on the premises of stela Laxhuber GmbH in Massing, where private individuals have since been able to deposit donations in kind around the clock. By pressing a button, the information about the donation is forwarded. Here a large readiness to help of the population and the surrounding companies showed up.
In the last 10 months, stela's humanitarian aid campaign has bought a total of 250,000€ worth of relief supplies such as clothing, medicines, bandages, food and hygiene products. In total, two fully loaded 40-ton trucks and more than 10 Sprinter trips went from Massing directly to Ukraine. Donations in kind continue to be accepted and transports organized in order to be able to support the people in the war zones.
In December, stela once again delivered relief goods to Ukraine instead of customer Christmas presents. For this purpose, 8 pieces of mobile generators were purchased and distributed to different institutions and schools in Krolevets and the surrounding area. In cooperation with stela's local partner, other needed aids were also purchased, including warm blankets, clothing for the nursing staff and thermos flasks.
