DXC Cares: Employees support child hospice in Germany

Continuing our DXC Cares stories, this one is from employees at DXC Technology in Germany, who raised money to increase the quality of life for critically ill children. Read their inspirational story.


Child hospice is of increasing importance and our employees wanted to help those in need.

So DXC Technology in Germany got to work, raising 30,000 euros by selling old office equipment to employees. This included desks, chairs, cabinets and many giveaways. While a minimum price was determined, people were eager to increase their donations. In total, more than 100 employees participated.

The money collected from this initiative was then donated to child hospice Bärenherz, which is a nonprofit association financed via voluntary donations only.

The focus of this hospice is to increase the quality and joy of life for children who are seriously ill. The organization is now planning to expand their current facilities, and therefore the donations are really important to them. Moreover, Bärenherz has a long history in Wiesbaden, Germany, where donations were made, and is a very well-known and a respected organization.

“We are very glad and proud about our colleagues who supported this great initiative. Thanks to all who made this happen and to DXC for such opportunity,” said Carolin Treichl, director of marketing and communications for North and Central Europe at DXC.

Together we can make our efforts count!
