Help us so that we can help
We are always surprised and grateful when people come to us and spontaneously lighten their wallet. For the team of a medical practice, the warm-hearted and positive sides of these people are a delightful gift in a daily work routine with often difficult situations.
"La Caja de la pequeña Silvia" in times of Corona
With the help of committed friends, we initiated the official creation of a foundation and since June 2020, the "Poor Children's Fund Fuerteventura" is registered as an official "empresa sin lucro" under the name "la caja de la pequeña Silvia". Especially the current situation and the difficult times that now lie ahead will be a challenge for our donation fund.
Beginnings of the "Poor Children's Fund Fuerteventura"
The story of the "Poor Children's Fund Fuerteventura" begins more than 15 years ago with a simple cardboard box on our desk. Our "tip box" at that time was nothing more than a symbolic gesture for the poorer patients in our practice. With the small amounts collected over the months, we funded small gifts to the children of single mothers. Here an entrance to the zoo, there a pair of soccer shoes or another mini-pleasures just to cheer up the children and make them happy for a moment.
A cardboard box grows up
Our cardboard box has now reached adulthood. With the help of committed friends, we have initiated the official establishment of a foundation and since June 2020, the "Poor Children's Fund Fuerteventura" is registered as an official "empresa sin lucro" under the name "la caja de la pequeña Silvia". This name, like so many things about this fundraiser, has a personal background. Silvia was the childhood friend of little Karola Simoni, who was also suffering from cancer at the time. A girl friendship against the disease and against unfriendly doctors and the cold world of the hospital was supposed to last forever, but finally ended with Silvia's lost fight. We dedicate the foundation to this strong and cheerful child who faced death and fear with laughter.
We are glad about your help
How can you help?
Uschi and Bruni with Karola Simoni
La Caja de la pequeña Silviais currently working at full speed! We receive donations from you almost every day and up to now our Anke Gruetzediek has been phoning the primary school, for example, to find out about their desolate situation or talking to families who have turned to us because they could no longer go shopping due to the circumstances surrounding Covid19 and were lacking the most basic necessities. Since this summer, the families are finally doing better and we can focus on poor children again. We are very happy that there are only a few families left who are in an absolute Covid emergency situation.
So we can focus again with the donated material donations, such as books, pencils etc. on those children, e.g. in the Costa Calma school, who lack the material. Who knows if there is not a future scientist among the pupils, or an environmental engineer who is developing a groundbreaking new energy concept? Or a nurse who will help many people?
After we had to go shopping with families until the summer of 2021 and, thanks to you and paid directly with your donations, filled their empty fridges again for the first time and provided them with the most important things, we can now tackle the basic needs and wishes of poor children. For this purpose, we organise supervised shopping trips or distribute donations in kind. Your donations go directly to the most needy and above all to poor children. Now it is up to us to help. Piece by piece.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank once again all the people who have supported not only our children's fund, but all our relief actions to date. We like being where we are and doing what we can and have learned.
Thank you so much!!!
YOU GIVE HAPPINESS!
