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!

From our projects
The story of Maui, cleft child from Colombia
Our new project to help children with cleft lip and palate in Colombia begins with a very unusual case. Maui was born with a cleft lip and palate. His parents belong to an indigenous people and do not know how to get him the help he needs. By a happy coincidence, Julia, a Swiss woman living in Colombia, is a neighbor of the family and offers to help. In search of treatment options, she comes across Deutsche Cleft Kinderhilfe.
Video: 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.
