In 1983, Gisela Wirtgen, entrepreneur and recipient of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany, founded the action group "Kinder in Not" (children in need), the objective of which is to lay the groundwork for a better future for children, adolescents and their families.
In keeping with the principle of helping others to help themselves, the relief organization now subsidizes some 36 aid projects in the Philippines, India and Brazil.
Among other things, "Kinder in Not" supports preschool education for children who live at garbage dumps and cemeteries in Cebu City, a school with a training center for young handicapped people in India, and a childcare center for boys and girls from HIV-positive families in Favela, Brazil. All donations are forwarded to their respective aid projects without deduction for administration expenses.
Additional information about the relief organization's work and the projects it supports is available at www.kinder-in-not.de.
