Who we are

From an idea to a foundation

It was the worst earthquake in 200 years. On January 12, 2010, seismic shocks with a strength of 7.2 brought chaos to Haiti. More than 250,000 people lost their lives and more than one million Haitians their homes.

Mubea's Works Council in Germany had originally the idea to make a one-off donation from its own fund to the victims of this catastrophe. However, a plan evolved for the long-term and sustainable Support for an aid-project, financed by the employees and the corporate management. So far, nearly half a million euros have been provided by Mubea in Germany to charity projects in Haiti so far. Moreover, a portion of the donations have been used for charity projects at the single Mubea locations.

The 100th company anniversary in 2016 is the kick-off for our newly established "Mubea helps foundation" in Germany, Czech Republic, and the US with a foundation capital in of total € 750,000. With the step of an international Mubea helps structure, we open the originally local orientation for all locations.

Alongside income generated through the foundation's capital as well as incomes from special projects (e.g. Advent calendars), also employees donations and external donations are used to support charitable aid projects at every Mubea location worldwide.
