Sustainable help for young patients is the focus of the music therapy which has been available at the Sociopaediatric Centre (SPZ) of the Aschaffenburg Children’s Clinic for the past three years. Hensel Recycling has been supporting this project since its inception and made another donation in 2018 to the tune of 2 500 euros.
“It is lovely for us to see that our commitment contributes to ensuring that the project has been able to establish itself as a valuable form of therapy and will continue in the future,” emphasises Oliver Krestin, Hensel Recycling’s Director, on handing over the check to Prof. Dr. Jörg Klepper, Chief Physician of the Aschaffenburg Children’s Clinic (left), as well as Stefan Kittel, Treasurer of the Society for the Promotion of the Children’s Clinic (middle).
Children suffering from a variety of illnesses, including developmental delays and multiple disabilities, spastic paralysis and movement disorders, are treated in the SPZ. Music therapy is one of the building blocks in the holistic therapy of the young patients. “Music is the door to the soul” – that’s why this method is often used to treat depression and anxiety, as well as in times of grief or behavioural problems. Music therapist Dorothea Brzeski comes to the Aschaffenburg Children’s Clinic regularly to provide therapy for children and young adults.
The usual financial resources are often very limited in everyday hospital life. For this reason, the Society for the Promotion of the Aschaffenburg Children’s Clinic has set itself the task of helping where support is required. This support begins with little details such as fleece blankets for the baby ward and extends to long-term projects such as music therapy.
Hensel Recycling has been a member of Society for the Promotion of the Children’s Clinic for many years and regularly helps the organisation with its work. “By now, it is almost a tradition for our company, and supporting the Children’s Clinic and the support organisation is a cause close to our hearts,” says Oliver Krestin.
