Help Children Foundation supports Lands Aid together with Three Musketeers and sea rescuer Claus-Peter Reisch, November 2021
This relief action mainly affects refugee camps around the city of Izmir in Turkey. There are many unofficial camps of mostly Syrian women with children who have settled in self-erected camps. Although they are tolerated, they receive no state aid whatsoever, and have neither work nor money.
Help Children Foundation has helped fund stoves, food and hygiene items so that the families in the tents are provided with the bare necessities and have a heat source in the tent that can keep them reasonably warm over the winter.
Below are some pictures from the distribution campaigns:
Aid packages for Syrian refugee children April 2021
In April 2021, survival kits were again distributed in refugee camps around Idlib and Aleppo in cooperation with kids to life. The packages contain basic food and warm blankets, toys and learning materials for the children, as well as masks and hygiene items that are urgently needed in the camps.
It was again a great pleasure for us to have the aid arrive and distribute it so directly, even if the situation in the camps is anything but pleasant. But the children and their families are happy about any help that is given to them.
Below are some pictures from this campaign:
In addition, a school project was founded and support was provided for this, such as classrooms, learning materials and school equipment for the lessons and the children.
It addresses one of the biggest problems that the camp children don’t receive any schooling and thus a lost generation is formed. This lost generation is of course very receptive to being used as soldiers later on, since otherwise they have almost no future prospects without education. That is why school education is so important for the children.
Some impressions from this project as well:
Aid packages for Syrian refugee children April 2020
In cooperation with kids to life, survival packages have again been distributed in refugee camps around Idlib and Aleppo. As always, the packages contained basic food and warm blankets, toys and learning materials for the children, as well as masks and hygiene items to contain the pandemic situation, especially in the camps.
The aid packages were received with great gratitude and joy.
We are happy about every donation that goes directly to the children and their families.

News from the project Senegal
At PERSPECTIVE SENEGAL work goes on, despite school closures and curfew. Like all schools in Senegal, the school in Ziuguinchor, in southern Senegal, has had to close its doors since March 14th 2020. In order to further encourage the children, the teachers visit them in their villages and teach outdoors in small groups. The children are very happy that they can continue to take part in the lessons and also get their usual lunch.
The day care center in Keur Massar is also currently not allowed to welcome street children on its premises. That is why the distribution of food, treatment of wounds and registration of the children now takes place on the streets. Many of the street children are unsure about the current situation, they hardly get any money from begging and are also worried about the virus that is being talked about everywhere. More than ever, the day care center has become a place of refuge and many children want to be admitted to the residential and educational center. Part of the center has already been set up as a quarantine station to facilitate the reception of these children. Abraham is busy with the registration and application process so hopefully these children can move into their new homes soon.
Help Children Foundation – Help that arrives
We wish all donors and supporters of
the Help Children Foundation
a Merry Christmas and
a happy and peaceful New Year 2020
Article from the club magazine of kids to life:
Translation of the German text:
At this point we would like to express our very special thanks to the Help Children Foundation. She has been actively supporting us in our international work since 2014 and is what makes many of our projects possible in the first place.
The initiators of the Help Children Foundation, Eleonore and Gabriel Sachs and Lea Vuceljic have set themselves the goal of helping children in extreme poverty and giving them a perspective for a hopeful future.
To achieve this, they work tirelessly and with a personal commitment that never fails to impress us. We appreciate the Help Children Foundation as a reliable, constant partner and thank them very much for the good cooperation.

Visiting Perspective Senegal
In March 2019, Lea visited the Senegal Perspective project near Dakar, Senegal. Together with the head of the center, the day care center in Keur Massar was first visited. The Day Care Center serves as a focal point for street children and offers them a safe haven. You can just be a kid there and take part in the playful activities. Abraham, who runs the daycare gave an insight into the work with the children. In addition to the games he tries to sensitize you to important topics, such as hygiene for the prevention of diseases and safe behavior in traffic. Children with open wounds or illnesses are treated by Abraham and his colleague Tony and they offer them an open ear for their worries and problems. The Day Care Center opened last September and has already become an integral part of the street children’s lives around Keur Massar.

Next, it was about 15 km to the residential and training center of the Senegal perspective. The children who visit the day care center can be accommodated here and receive a sheltered home and future prospects. On the premises there is a football field, vegetable garden and various workshops.

Workshop at the cobbler’s shop
In addition to basic school education, the children can also attend numerous workshops and do a lesson here. Soon, a tailor shop will be added to the cobbler’s shop, carpentry and locksmith’s workshops. So the children can pursue their interests according to their desired profession. There are common meals every day and there is a very family atmosphere. Some of the former street children have recently completed training at the center and are being accompanied externally. In this way, more children can be admitted and receive a sheltered home in the center with new perspectives for the future.
Support for the St. Josefs Indianer Hilfswerk e.V.
The Help Children Foundation supports the St. Josefs Indian Relief Organization e.V. in Frankfurt am Main, which in turn supports the St. Josefs Indian School in Chamberlain, South Dakota with donations from Germany. The task of the St. Josephs Indian School is to provide for the basic care of the Lakota Indian children and the spiritual, emotional and educational development of each child, respecting their culture and traditions. More than 200 Lakota children receive schooling, accommodation, clothing, food and medical care every year – all at no cost to their families.
For donations intended directly for the St. Josefs Hilfswerk, please leave the note “St. Josefs Hilfswerk” on the donation transfer. Many many thanks.

POVERTY RELIEF, WHERE IT IS MOST URGENT
With the support of the Help Children Foundation, kids to life has once again been able to deliver numerous relief packages to needy children and their families in Syria.
The help provided in the meantime ensures the survival of thousands of children and is also psychologically important: the children do not feel abandoned by the rest of the world.
In late 2017 and March 2018, kids to life brought a total of 4,000 food and clothing aid packages to the children and their families. The Help Children Foundation was again able to contribute to aid deliveries this year. Furthermore, the representative of kids to life, Ms. Ayunur again distributed an aid delivery in December 2018 on site.
We thank all donors for helping needy children
and wish you all a Merry Christmas
and a good and successful year 2019

Project: Day care center for street children in Dakar / Senegal
In Senegal, many children are given to Marabuts as a student (Talibé). Often they come to a profiteering Marabut and are forcefully forced to beg, or they flee to the street.
PERSPECTIVE SENEGAL offers escaped and abused Talibés a safe haven and a chance to live a normal life. In the training and residential center they learn to process their trauma and to develop confidence again. In addition to a basic education, they can follow a carpenter’s training, which opens up new perspectives for the future. The HELP CHILDREN FOUNDATION supports the creation of a day trip in Dakar to get more children off the road.
Project: Help Children Foundation & kids to life
In war and crisis areas such as Syria or Turkey, the distribution of over 2,000 survivors’ pensions to children in need is annually one of the main pillars of foundations. Various educational projects and the targeted support of children’s children are further important projects of the international help of kids to life. The Help Children Foundation regularly supports the international projects of kids to life.
In Unterhaching near Munich, the Foundation’s 16,000 m² pedagogic center for children and youths is used by more than 20 social institutions with over 3,000 children a year. It has a children’s workshop, a petting zoo with a variety of animals, sports fields, a climbing garden and two overnight accommodation houses.
Currently, the Foundation is increasingly committed to refugee children, provides assistance to children from refugee camps, and organizes football camps for unaccompanied minor refugees and home children.
With the ever increasing number of children to be looked after, the foundation has come to its capacity limit. For this reason, the construction of a large kitchen has become indispensable in order to provide the children with meals. The Help Children Foundation also supports kids to life in this important project. In no other life stage is food as important as in childhood. In the first ten years they learn the nutritional behavior, which forms the basis for their lifelong eating habits.
At kids to life the children are not only well-cared for, but learn a lot about different ingredients and recipes in cookery and baking workshops and acquire basic knowledge about different types of preparation. In a very playful way, a respectful handling of food is also conveyed.
