Happy Birthday help alliance
The aid organization celebrates 20th anniversary with numerous guests today in Frankfurt
The globally active aid organization was founded in September 1999 as an association of employees from various areas of the Lufthansa Group. In the meantime it forms the central pillar of the Group’s activities in the area of social responsibility and stands for professional, sustainable help for self-help for disadvantaged people, especially young people worldwide.
To date, the help alliance has collected 17 million euros in donations, which have been used for 50 projects in Africa, 55 in Asia, around 25 in South America and 20 in Europe. The special feature: even today, the projects are proposed for support by Lufthansa Group employees and are also supervised by them on an honorary basis. Since 1999, 80 Lufthansa Group employees have volunteered as project managers. They regularly check on site to make sure that 100 percent of the donations go to the projects.
