This year employees again selected colleagues who most needed this help. This means colleagues in challenging life situations, the families of workers who have lost income due to mass redundancies in nearby companies, and the health complications of children and family members who require costly hospitalization and additional treatment.
2021, just like the previous year, has been impacted by the pandemic. So a reason for the gift was the loss of full family income due to complying with quarantine measures and closed schools.
Colleagues helping colleagues is the basic principle of the EG Support Association. Since being established in 2013, Energy Group company employees can put 2% of their taxes into the foundation. The amount so collected is doubled by the Energy Group owner from own resources. These funds are then distributed to colleagues most in need.
We're enduring a really challenging pandemic situation for the second consecutive year. Nevertheless, employees' interest in helping other employees remains high, and shows the solidarity and collegiality for which we thank all contributors to the association.
