Company Information

Koblenz (euro adhoc) - The employees of CompuGROUP don´t just deal  
with  the subject of healthcare during work hours - for many of the  
over  2,800  software specialists, this is a topic that  is  near  
and  dear  to  their  heart.      The reports about the devastating  
earthquake  in  Haiti  were  the  impetus  for  a company-wide
collection of donations for  the  non-profit  organization  Doctors
without Borders.

"The pictures coming out of Haiti touched us deeply  -  there  was   no  time  to waste", is how Ralf Glass, one  of  the  initiator  of   the  donation  campaign, describes the reaction of many of his   colleagues  in  the  days  following  the horrific earthquake in the Caribbean. "We received many emails about it and  the devastating earthquake was literally the  last  straw",  is  how  Mathias  Lange described it. He is a member of the CompuGROUP Supervisory Board.

A call for donations was organized within a couple of days and  in   Germany  and Austria alone, in excess of 9,000.00 euros was collected.  CEO  Frank  Gotthardt added his own donation to bring the amount to a total of  15,000.00  euros.  "We want  to  help  people   all  over  the  world  with  our    medical    information technology", said Frank  Gotthardt,  CompuGROUP´s  Chairman  and  Founder.  "But oftentimes help has to be made available immediately, the  way   Doctors  without Borders provides it. It was beyond question that our company  would  participate in this help."

Since the Austrian  employees  had  already  given  their  donation   to  Doctors without Borders, a symbolic check was presented to the German section today,  in the Koblenz headquarters. With the CMO   Professor  Dr.  med.  Stefan  F.  Winter present, an oversized check in the amount of 12,000.00 euros  was  presented  to Mrs. Mareike Müller, a representative for Doctors without Borders.

"I am very proud that our colleagues took the initiative for  this   collection", is how the chairman, Professor Winter commented on the donation.  "This  may  be the best way to demonstrate that we are serious about helping people in  need  - professionally and beyond."
