Delphi Organic GmbH has also been engaged in the social sphere for many years. One of our focuses is South America. In Paraguay in particular, Delphi supports a targeted project called Ko´embota. What’s the idea behind the Ko’embota project? To be precise, children from poor families in Asunción, the capital of Paraguay, have the opportunity to visit a dentist and use a computer training room for free.
Something that is a matter of course for us is an absolute exception for these children. The fact is that a tiny upper class (approx. 2.6%) owns approximately 85.4% of the land in Paraguay. To put it plainly, poverty in this South American country is huge. For example, 6-8 people often live in makeshift housing, without sanitation or electricity. And the children are the ones who suffer.
It is therefore important to provide medical treatment for children as preventive health care. Another important concern is education. By setting up a computer training room, children have been given access to knowledge through the internet and appropriate training. The aim is to enable a better future for children.
Maria Lis Overmann is the sponsor and person in charge of the dental surgery and the computer room. She has dedicated herself heart and soul to the issues of her homeland for years. But keeping these projects alive depends on steady support from people and companies. That’s why each individual is called upon to support these projects, because equipment, doctors, and facilities are expensive.
