The Sauren charity portfolio

The selection of ten charitable organizations making up the Sauren charity portfolio is based on careful prior research and examination. Sauren looks for organizations that make a difference. Careful attention is also paid to transparency and the efficient use of donations. Under the motto “Ten good causes to choose from”, customers and partners of Sauren have until until December 17th to cast their vote for one of the ten organizations. Each vote is worth a donation of 25 euros from Sauren. Over the past twelve years the donation balance of the Sauren donation portfolio stands at 595,425 euros!

We think that this is a wonderful campaign and are proud and very happy to have been selected in 2020!

Impressions from Bolivia
The parents of our cleft children are always full of gratitude. When their child is born with cleft, they often do not know what to make of the malformation, much less that it can be treated. And even if they do - most of our little patients come from the poorest of backgrounds. Their parents could never afford the operation. It is an unimaginable happiness for them to learn that their children can receive qualified treatment, and free of charge even. This wonderful, touching film from our Bolivian aid project captures these special moments of happiness.
Video: Impressions from Pakistan
This film, made for our Pakistani partner organization, the Al-Mustafa Welfare Societey, by the father of one of our patients, shows scenes from our work in Karachi. From here, our senior surgeon Prof. Ashraf Ganatra treats cleft children from poorest families. He operates the children from Karachi at the Al Mustafa Medical Center. In order to reach the many needy families living outside the city, he also regularly heads out to local provincial hospitals to treat cleft patients there.
The story of Dat from Vietnam
As a baby, Dat fell victim to an unqualified surgery. Probably inexperienced doctors severed important arteries during his palate surgery in Vietnam. The result: a large hole in the palate that massively affects the boy's life. We brought him to Germany to get reconstructive surgery. An individual case that due to the financial and human cost must remain an exception. In this video, we want to draw attention to the risks of "safari surgery" as opposed to sustainable development aid.
