Winter aid for children in Ukraine with IONOS and UNICEF
Constant air raids, bitter cold, an uncertain future: childhood in Ukraine is a state of emergency. Children in the east and south in particular
under fire again and again. In the second winter of war, over four million children are in need of humanitarian aid. Many live in dwellings that do not adequately protect them from the cold. Let’s support them with IONOS and UNICEF:
– By providing winter clothing and blankets.
– In safe places where they can learn and play.
– With generators to heat hospitals.
We support Camerata Kassel.
Camerata Kassel was founded in 2020. This chamber orchestra brings together experienced soloists and orchestral musicians with budding young talents. The orchestra sees itself as a field of experimentation for lively interplay. Under the direction of Michael Kravtchin, it is constantly evolving and develops a broad repertoire of symphonies and solo concertos.
This year, a special project will be presented at Kulturhaus Dock 4, with a varied programme under the direction of Maria Radzikhovskiy and Michael Kravtchin.
We support Caritas Ukraine & Caritas International.
In the Caritas centres, people receive warm meals, blankets and a safe place to sleep.
Caritas employees distribute food parcels, water canisters and hygiene products in emergency shelters and at central distribution points.
Social workers and psychologists look after people traumatised by war.
Caritas employees and volunteers organise the safe transport of displaced families to their relatives.
Caritas Ukraine has set up a telephone hotline, as people are very scared and have many questions since the events unfolded so quickly.
Since 2016, we have been supporting the TOGETHER- Hilfe Projekt Uganda e. V. organisation, which aims to improve the living conditions of people in Uganda.
The organisation, which has been in existence for 20 years, has already achieved a great deal: Clean water, schools for children, scholarships for the most needy, electricity from solar energy and a modern health centre in Kooki.

News about the Buryansungwe Health Centre
This year, we are supporting the construction of a solar power system for the Health Centre in Buryansungwe.
Many rural regions in Uganda are not connected to the public electricity supply. In order to obtain electricity, decentralised energy supply must be used, made possible by battery storage and solar systems.
Supported by various companies and using its innovative solutions, the TOGETHER Foundation has enabled the construction of several decentralised energy supply systems for the Buryansungwe and Kooki locations. Among other things, teachers and pupils can use the stored solar energy in the evening and night hours even after sunset.
The project is in full swing. Batteries and modules have already been ordered and the control cabinet is in production. The hardware is due to be dispatched at the end of January. A team will then begin installation in June 2020.
Further information about the projects can be found on the TOGETHER Foundation website.
