Objectives & goals

Helping and educating

The work of our foundation is divided into two areas. We offer specific supporting measures for HIV-infected and AIDS-suffering children and families affected by the illness. We also do educational and prevention work. The main target groups are children and young people. With this in mind, we are increasingly visiting schools in Hamburg and the surrounding area.

There are plans to offer the prevention project across the country and we are looking for local partners. Are you a doctor in the field of HIV and are you interested in educating in schools? Then contact us!

You can find out the details of our offering on the pages about direct aid and prevention.

Give children the gift of laughter

The manner of the help is also close to our hearts. We help affected families, particularly the children, completely unbureaucratically and personally. We work towards this together with institutions across the country such as AIDS support centers, HIV clinics at teaching hospitals, health authorities and charitable organizations. This cooperation allows targeted assistance, precisely tailored to individual needs.

The anonymity of those affected and local checking are the reasons for our cooperation with the institutions. We receive applications with evidence of their needs. After checking and written acceptance, the things applied for can be purchased. Those affected, or the institution, pay in advance and subsequently submit original receipts to the Foundation. Only then do we forward donations collected by us.

Our favorite part is giving affected children the gift of laughter. We do this by fulfilling children's very personal, small wishes. It is the simple things that light up children's eyes: a first school satchel, a holiday on a farm or a cool new pair of glasses.

So far we have been able to pass on more than 3 million euros in donations to the children. We are pleased to be able to continue this work and are grateful for your support.
