egeplast is socially committed by active volunteer work in committees and by contributions and donations, among others to:
As a family business, we are stunned and saddened by the current situation in Ukraine. Due to the invasion of Russian troops into Ukraine, a humanitarian catastrophe is happening before our eyes. Many innocent people are in need of support and donations.
We would like to help and have decided to donate an amount of 20,000 euros to the Action Alliance for Disaster Relief to support humanitarian and medical care on the ground.
Our thoughts are with the victims of the war and we thank all helpers for their tireless efforts!
As a family business, the health of the people in our region is close to our hearts. In times of the Covid pandemic, egeplast would therefore like to thank the health sector for its outstanding services and supports the UKM in the expansion of the cornea bank. Prof. Dr. Nicole Eter, Director of the University Eye Hospital, is pleased about the “valuable support to make further corneal collections possible and thus save eyesight”. Injury, disease
or inflammation of the cornea can lead to severe vision loss or blindness. In such cases, a corneal transplant can help restore vision.
