WHU Studenten helfen e.V. (“Students Help”) was founded in fall 2004. The aim of this initiative is to realize social commitment in the form of real-life projects. This should establish a basis from which the activities can be sustained long-term and future classes motivated to instigate their own diverse aid projects.
The budding initiative’s first project is to help equip a gynecological clinic in Herat, Afghanistan. In late May 2005, eight WHU students flew to Afghanistan in order to personally deliver three sea containers, packed full of medical supplies, and to ensure that the medical devices could be put to good use.
