BIOTRONIK Social Engagement
SERVING OUR COMMUNITY
From the Heart
Contributing to our community is a long-standing tradition at BIOTRONIK. We work with local partners in Berlin, Germany, and across the world to support long-term projects and help people in need.
Heartbeat International – Lifesaving Medical Technology
Our concern is giving people in acute need access to high-quality and life-saving medical technology. That’s why we have partnered with Heartbeat International (HBI) for many years. The globally active organization helps patients living with heart disease in the poorest countries. HBI works to provide those affected with free heart implants, saving many lives. BIOTRONIK has supported HBI’s work since 2010, donating over 5,600 implants, including pacemakers, implantable defibrillators (ICDs), as well as pacemaker and ICD leads.
Die Arche – Supporting Children in Berlin
The nonprofit organization Die Arche works with disadvantaged children and adolescents from all over Germany. Since 2000, Die Arche has worked in a former school building in the neighborhood of Berlin-Hellersdorf. Nearly 300 children and youths ranging from two to 18 years old attend every day. Children receive free warm meals, help with their homework, and participate in fun activities such as music and athletics. BIOTRONIK supports Die Arche with monthly donations and our employees donate their time at summer and winter holiday events. Together, we work to change our community for the better.
