As in previous years, SUNfarming donates to Christmas for a non-profit organization. Through our Food & Energy project in Madagascar, we were made aware of the children's aid project "Clair de Lune" by our local partners. 70 orphans or children from penniless families from 1 to 6 years of age are looked after by 3 employees every day and receive one hot meal a day - sometimes the only meal. SUNfarming will support this project in 2020 with a regular, monthly donation. For this year's Christmas on December 18, the SUNfarmer and their families spontaneously collected and with the amount transferred, Christmas became a festival of joy for these children too.
In this spirit, we wish you and your families a merry Christmas and a happy holiday season. Health, happiness and much success for the New Year - combined with our heartfelt thanks for your trust!
With festive greetings
Your SUNfarming Team
Mr. Benito A. Ferreiras Rector of ISA was the first speaker to highlight the benefits of the SUNfarming Food & Energy Training Center for the Dominican Republic. Mr. Peter Schrum, founder and main shareholder of the SUNfarming Group, presented the Food & Energy Concept. The German Ambassador Dr. Volker Pellet emphasized how advantageous the technology transfer operated by SUNfarming is for the Dominican Republic. The Ambassador of the Dominican Republic in Germany, Ms. Maibé Sánchez Caminero, confirmed the advantages of the cooperation between the Dominican Republic and Germany using the example of this project.
The numerous guests included many high-ranking employees from the Ministry of Energy, the Ministry of Environment and Agriculture, the CNE (National Energy Commission), the CDEEE (Dominican State Holding of Energy Companies) and also the Director of GIZ in the Dominican Republic, Mr. Clemens Findeisen, was among the guests.
“It was a successful event with an interested specialist audience, who followed the lectures with great interest. It is not an exaggeration to say, that the Food & Energy concept among all those present, is classified as a very positive contribution to the development of the Dominican Republic. Afterwards there was a conversation with the Vice President CDEEE Lic. Rubén Jiménez Bichara, ”explains Holger Schönherr SUNfarming project manager.
