Win-win situation in Dossenheim

During the peak Christmas season a refugee from Nigeria is helping out in the warehouse

Since early November Jeff Uche Pula has been supporting the team in the Dossenheim warehouse and will continue to do so until the end of December. The 24-year-old comes from Lagos in Nigeria, and fled his country three years ago because of the disturbances there. He initially played professional football in Italy, but now lives in Germany with his wife and child. The young Nigerian therefore has a highly motivated approach to the heavy workload imposed by the busy Christmas period: his aim is to build a future for himself and his small family, while at the same time improving his knowledge of German by communicating with his colleagues.

At cyber-Wear corporate social responsibility is firmly anchored in the company's articles of association as a way of making a positive contribution to sustainable development, which also includes the active integration of refugees. When the team's workload can be reduced by additional helping hands, as in the present case, both sides benefit visibly and directly.
