These drinks, designed specially to boost the immune system, have been dispatched to Diakoniewerk care workers across Austria. All those involved in the administrative and pedagogical sectors as well as the Red Cross Vorarlberg team received an All-in-One drink to enjoy, a concentrated vitamin juice which provides the body with all the important micro-nutrients it needs. The health, care workers and emergency services were thrilled on receiving the gifts.
“We are really enthusiastic about this Christmas campaign” says Red Cross Manager Mag. Janine Gozzi, MPH MBA. “We’d like to thank the Child & Family Foundation and ONESENSE for thinking of our team members at this difficult time, a time at which our team are performing an extraordinary job.”
The director of Diakonie Austria, Pfr.in Dr.in Maria Katharina Moser, welcomes the symbol of hope cast by the campaign.
“Even before Corona began, our care workers coped with too great a workload in too little time” she emphasises. “Corona has meant that Diakonie team members are working at their limit. We need comprehensive care reform in Austria to ensure that our care workers decide to stay in this sector. The Child & Family Foundation and ONESENSE joint campaign cannot serve as a replacement for the necessary structural changes which still need to take place. However, we are very pleased to note that the campaign has raised considerable awareness around the topic of care and shows appreciation for the immeasurable contribution made by the care workers of Austria. This, in turn, highlights the urgency of the situation which the care sector in Austria is in.”
