Emergency Help Ukraine

Update 16.05.2022

As already communicated on our annual general assembly as well as in our newsletter, beginning of April Primavera supported in a first step the charity organization „Drei Musketierte Reutlingen e.V.“ with 50 thousand EUR. The photographs reflect in an impressive way how food and medicine bought with Primavera donations have immediately reached the refugees in Poland and the Ukraine.

The first call for donations to support Ukraine refugees has been answered by many donors: about 80 thousand EUR have been collected until end of April. A great result! Many thanks to all donors.


We do not want to stop here. Primavera is currently planning to support further projects for the benefit of Ukrainian refugees together with our partner “Drei Musketiere Reutlingen e.V.”.


In parallel, Primavera is currently in contact with the local Bosch organization in the Ukraine as well as with local NGOs in the Stuttgart area to set up further social projects.


Overall, it is clear and necessary to ask for more donations. The need is unchanged very great.

Please support Primavera in its activities, and please donate for the Ukrainian people in need!

Emergency Help Ukraine

Primavera e.V. donates EUR 50.000 to the NGO „Drei Musketiere e.V.“

The war in Ukraine has shocked us all. After years of peace in Europe, we are seeing people fleeing and being forced out of their homes. The suffering of the Ukrainian population is hard to bear. It is expected that numbers of refugees will be in the millions.


Primavera eV, a registered charity in Germany, has decided to support the charity “Drei Musketiere e.V“ (meaning “Three Musketeers“) with an immediate donation of EUR 50.000. The donation will be used to purchase food and basic toiletries/ hygiene products for refugees. But that is only the beginning. Primavera e.V has started a large-scale disaster-relief fundraising campaign. Donations will be used to finance the immediate donation to “Three Musketeers“ alongside further initiatives for providing emergency aid to Ukraine.

About the Three Musketeers

Within four days of the start of the war in Ukraine, representatives from the Three Musketeers had made the journey from Reutling, Germany to Ukraine to start helping. They are currently providing warm meals at border crossing points and are helping a children’s hospital, oncology and cardiology clinics and a rehabilitation center for patients with paraplegia. Furthermore, they are providing supplies to 15 children’s homes, orphanages and clinics in Lviv, which together are housing 1,500 evacuated children.

The charity was grounded in 2016 and members have worked on over 100 international aid projects in Syria, Turkey, Greece and the Balkans.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your donation is crucial

Additional donations will be crucial in order to maintain emergency aid for the duration of the war. Even a few Euros can enable a young mother with small children to escape and be provided with food, medicines and basic toiletries/ nappies. Even 50 cents is enough to provide a warm meal at the border crossing points.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Looking to the future

The future of Ukraine is uncertain, but the “Three Musketeers“ are already developing plans for supporting Ukrainians in rebuilding their country after the war and helping younger generations of Ukrainians to look forward to lives of security and fulfilment.

30 Years of Primavera - Three decades of helping children in need

05th March 2020

Getting children off the streets and offering them a better life through education has been the mission of Primavera – Hilfe für Kinder in Not e.V. since its founding in 1990, when ten Bosch associates joined forces to do something about the hardships young people face in Brazil’s favelas. Today, the more than 1,500 members of the organization support 50 aid projects in 16 countries, having taken in over 800,000 euros in donations to date.

Primavera - Hilfe für Kinder in Not e.V. was founded 30 years ago. To guarantee the sustainability of the organization’s efforts, the principle guiding the selection of projects has remained the same: Primavera solely supports projects in places where Bosch is located, allowing local associates to make sure that each donation is always used directly to benefit children and young people. “Visiting the projects to hear firsthand from the children and mentors there, and seeing their eyes light up as they tell me about their lives and what they’re learning, is something I find particularly touching and motivating", says Christoph Kübel, the director of industrial relations and patron of the organization.
