Stronger together for disadvantaged children in the world’s poorest regions. This is the idea behind the merger of the Children’s Aid Foundation with Childaid Network. Board member Prof. Dr. Peter Eigen justifies this step with a common understanding of value and the concrete intention to pool resources. The Children’s Aid Foundation was founded in 1999 by Jutta Philippi Eigen and her mother Else Philippi.
The decision to help children sustainably matured with the Berlin doctor during her assignment in the poor clinics of Botswana and Kenya, and later worldwide in the service of the German Doctors. Since then, the Foundation has helped hundreds of children and young people in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe to fundamentally improve their living conditions. The focus is on education and health care.
The merger is the occasion for a big fundraising gala on December 8th in Berlin. 150 guests from politics, business and society can expect an enchanting program with the World Champion of Mental Magic and Childaid Network Ambassador Nicolai Friedrich.
Mitri Sirin, known as the presenter of ZDF Morgenmagazin and also ambassador of Childaid Network will lead through the evening. The donations of the evening will benefit the project “Future for Street Children” in the Indian metropolis Guwahati. We would like to thank AdEx Partners. As the main sponsor of the event, you will allow us to donate 100 to the project.
