At our plant in Emmerich, Germany a Christmas tree wish campaign was organized for the second time in a row. In cooperation with organizations that care for disadvantaged children, the children were able to submit wish lists. These were placed in the Christmas tree in the entrance area and could be taken by colleagues. All wish lists were removed within a day and little by little, the wrapped presents arrived under the Christmas tree.

Orang Asli is a collective term for 18 ethnic groups of about 150,000 native people in Malaysia. The majority of them live in rural areas. The poverty rate among Orang Asli is high, while the literacy rate is low. The Oleon team in Malaysia, together with Lam Soon Plantation organized a visit to 4 Orang Asli villages in Pahang, Malaysia. We contributed food supplies and spent some time connecting with the people, both old and young.
