This Saturday, October 1, is “Foundations Day”. This day was created by the Association of German Foundations to draw attention to the work of foundations in Germany and Europe. The individual foundations organize events to present their work.
The Association lists 24,650 foundations of various sizes in Germany. Hundreds more are added every year. They promote important charitable causes in all areas of society, from art and culture to education, the environment, science, sports, international understanding and many more.
Healthcare is also one of the causes supported. We are therefore pleased to count many foundations among our supporters, in addition to numerous companies and of course our many, many private donors. They support our aid projects for children with cleft lip and palate, for example by sponsoring the purchase of equipment for our doctors, or by financing surgery contingents in the project countries.
We know: every donation entrusted to us comes from the heart. And each and every one of our donors allows us to improve the life of a child with cleft lip and palate. A child whom we might otherwise not have been able to help. This means a very great, lasting happiness for a little person in need. We thank you all for making this possible, in the name of the children and their families as well. Especially in these difficult economic times. Thank you!
