Bremen, July 26, 2021. For more than a week, several regions in Germany and other countries have been struggling with the consequences of the flood disaster.
After heavy rainfall, massive flooding and landslides occurred in many places. Therefore the online marketplace for vacation homes Traum-Ferienwohnungen calls its coworkers, holiday-makers and hosts to donate to the flood relief efforts of the German Red Cross.
The regions in Rhineland-Palatinate, North Rhine-Westphalia and Bavaria are particularly affected. Thousands have lost their livelihoods, there are numerous injured and dead. “Some of our landlords live in the affected regions and rent out their vacation properties there. They have lost all their belongings and in some cases have to cope with the loss of relatives. We are shocked by the extent of the disaster and our thoughts are with the victims and relatives,” says company spokeswoman Franziska Borel.
For this reason, the Bremen-based company has called on its 130 employees, its 30,000 private vacation home renters and approximately 300,000 vacation guests reached via a vacationer newsletter to donate to the flood relief efforts of the German Red Cross. Anyone wishing to help the victims of the flood disaster can do so via the official donation account of the German Red Cross. More than 3,500 DRK heroes and helpers are working on the ground to support those affected.
On the website of the DRK you can find all information about the appeal for donations
