President's Statement

  “When I first came to India in 2000, I got a connection and immediately felt that it was my second home. I was so impressed by the will of these people to work under any conditions. Day after day, it became so clear in my mind that I would set up my charity here in India, it was meant to be.

More than 11 YEARS already that we work together. The way is sometimes easy, sometimes very hard nevertheless our united Hearts have done a fantastic work.”
