AURELIUS makes Christmas donation of EUR 68,000 this year to the charitable association AVICENNA Kultur- und Hilfswerk e.V.

- The donation is financing the AURELIUS School for Syrian refugee children in Turkey

- Additional psychological counselling and physiotherapy to help the children overcome traumatic war experiences and injuries

Munich, December 23, 2019 - On the occasion of this year's AURELIUS Christmas party, employees and the Executive Board donated EUR 68,000 to the charitable association AVICENNA Kultur- und Hilfswerk. The donation will mainly benefit the AURELIUS School, which is operated by Avicenna in western Turkey. The association AURELIUS Refugee Initiative established by AURELIUS employees and the Executive Board in 2015 has financed the school since 2017.

Thanks to the donations, around 50 refugee children are currently receiving instruction at the AURELIUS school. Classes in Arabic and mathematics should provide the Syrian civil war refugees with better educational prospects close to their home country of Syria. In addition, the children are receiving psychological counselling. The school also offers evening classes for women and a preschool class.

Around 4 million Syrian refugees currently live in Turkey. In theory, refugee children can attend school in Turkey. However, administrative obstacles, a lack of transportation options and language problems often mean that these children cannot really take part in state-run education. Most of the refugee children do not speak Turkish and have limited prospects of success at a Turkish school as a result. The majority of the children over the age of 10 work as day laborers in agriculture instead of going to school.

The association Avicenna Kultur- und Hilfswerk was founded by Dr. Djavad Kermani and his family in 1989 to carry out and coordinate cultural, medical and charitable projects and activities. Since 2015, Avicenna has focused on supporting refugees on location and helping people "on their way to a better life." It provides medical care, aid in acute cases of poverty and need, and educational opportunities in the refugee camps.

HELMA Eigenheimbau: Klarer Kauf

Die HELMA Eigenheimbau hat mit dem Zugang weiterer Ferienimmobilienprojekte das potenzielle Umsatzvolumen um 150 Mio. € gesteigert. Ohnehin verfügt die Gesellschaft über einen umfangreichen Grundstücksbestand für das Bauträgergeschäft, womit in den kommenden Geschäftsjahren Umsätze in Höhe von über 1,4 Mrd. € realisiert werden könnten. Damit dürften unsere Schätzungen, in denen wir ein nachhaltiges Überschreiten der Umsatzmarke von 300 Mio. € annehmen, gut unterfüttert sein. Bei einem Kursziel von 65,00 € ist die HELMA-Aktie ein klarer Kauf.
