Lufthansa City Center (LCC) has always been aware of its corporate responsibility. We believe that by getting involved on a social level within the frame of day-to-day business activity, companies have the capability to contribute immensely to a sustainable and viable society in the future.
Since October 2013 Lufthansa City Center has been supporting the aid organisation HelpAlliance via a large-scale donation campaign. HelpAlliance was founded in 1999 by 13 Lufthansa employees and combines almost 40 different help initiatives under one roof.
HelpAlliance supports initiatives in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe and South America. By working together with experienced partners on the ground, the organisation ensures that all donations reach those who are most in need of aid. One of the most important target groups is children. HelpAlliance strives to build bridges to a brighter future by investing in schools and other educational projects.
HelpAlliance and LCC Support the Prana Project in India
One of our current success stories in the Prana Project in Pondicherry, India. For over 10 years the Prana school has effectively provided education for children with special needs, regardless of religion or cast. In order to protect these children from diseases it was imperative to redevelop the sanitary facilities to ensure a basic standard of hygiene. With the support of LCC,HelpAlliance was able to repair the roof, leaking pipes, and broken toilet system as well as renovate the toilet hut. Click here for more information on the Prana project.
On-Flight Donation Bags
Since the HelpAlliance is exclusively funded by donations, LCC invested in 750,000 donation bags. In 2014, Lufthansa, Brussels Airlines, Austrian Airlines, Germanwings and Condor distributed 600,000 of these bags. Flight guests were welcomed to anonymously leave any left-over change of any currency in the bags as a donation to HelpAlliance.
Lufthansa City Center employees distributed the remaining 150,000 donation bags to their travel agency clients, raising awareness in all corners of the world.
