Heimo Scheuch, CEO of Wienerberger: "As one of the world's leading providers of building materials and solutions, we have set a goal to support the creation of housing for the socially disadvantaged. Our cooperation with Habitat for Humanity not only intensifies, but also focuses these efforts - exactly where help is needed. I am proud that we, as Wienerberger AG, were able to play such important role in the construction of the stationary unit of the Hospice Casa Sperantei - a facility that will provide incurably ill children and adults and their families with adequate and dignified surroundings in very difficult times."
