Bringing back color to life

At Ludwigsburg's Karlshöhe center, 27 colleagues are refurbishing a new home for unaccompanied underage refugees. "Bringing back color to life" is the motto that motivated the Mercedes-Benz Global Service & Parts team during the refurbishment of the shabby facilities of the Karlshöhe Ludwigsburg foundation to lend them a homely feeling.

"The refurbishment was a very good example of successful collaboration between two very different "working worlds". Apart from the tangible and sustainable support provided, a day like this offers both sides one thing above all: the opportunity to meet people!", according to Hardy Sauer, from the Karlshöhe in Ludwigsburg. The contact and exchange with people who do not necessarily see the world from a purely Karlshöhe perspective is very important to him, forcing Sauer to reflect and keep questioning his work. But Daimler employees also benefited: "Looking beyond one's own nose towards people who have been marginalized on the edges of society, in most cases as a result of their disabilities, illnesses, or social standing, helps one to stay focused and cherish the genuinely important things in life". Mercedes-Benz employees support social projects as part of the "Corporate Volunteering" project. The "Karlshöhe" charitable foundation in Ludwigsburg was using money raised by the organization itself for the refurbishment work and those involved were delighted with the support and commitment of the Mercedes-Benz employees.
