- HIV & AIDS
- Direct aid
Children infected with HIV and suffering from AIDS and their families still only receive limited compassion in our society. On top of the physical and psychological consequences, those affected also suffer from social ostracism and even poverty. This makes dealing with an illness, which will accompany the children for their entire lives, even more difficult.
I would like to use my foundation to give the important topic of HIV and AIDS more public attention again, to minimise the social isolation of the affected children and families and to make their lives a little easier.
The non-profit Michael Stich Foundation was founded in 1994 by Michael Stich. We campaign for children infected with and affected by HIV and suffering from AIDS as well as their families.
As our work is exclusively financed by donations, we are pleased with your contribution.
Alongside direct help, which helps the children thanks to personal contributions, we are also actively involved in prevention and education in Hamburg's schools. We want to raise awareness of HIV and AIDS with the schoolchildren and dispel unfounded fears.
The Michael Stich Foundation turned 20 in 2014. Our Dragon Boat Cup also celebrated a nice anniversary. The charity event founded by us was held for the tenth time on June 13.
With a good atmosphere and lots of ambition, our teams from companies, clubs and many celebrities competed against one another in dragon boats on the Inner Alster Lake in Hamburg. The sporting event combines fun and joy with a good cause. The entire proceedings benefit our projects.
On 10 June 2016, the next will be held Drachenbootcup. Here you can find impressions of past events and lots of information on the next date:

We organise presentations for schoolchildren from year 6, in which specialist doctors give information HIV & AIDS age-appropriately – because knowledge protects against becoming infected and breaks down reservations when dealing with those affected.
A play about HIV and AIDS, which gives not only young people food for thought. The actor Michael Wanker hauntingly conveys what it means for a person to be infected with HIV.
HIV and AIDS is a topic that seems to be rapidly disappearing from both the media and from people's heads. We are counteracting this with adverts in advertising columns and bus stops.
