Charitable Giving • 2019-2022

Supporting Local and International Communities through Health and Well Being*

The AIWCC is proud to support Bunter Kreis Rheinland (BKR) as its local charity.

Bunter Kreis Rheinland works with families of chronically ill, critically ill and handicapped children. Their main focus is the medical care of young patients at home by nurses and social workers. Additionally, they offer programs to support the families in their everyday lives including travel and leisure activities for children and young people with disabilities, activities for children suffering from diabetes as well as activities for the healthy brothers and sisters of sick or handicapped children.

All of their programs are donor-financed as health insurance in Germany does not cover these kinds of costs. The Bunter Kreis Rheinland is represented at several hospitals including the University Hospital of Cologne. Their office is located in Bonn.

The organization was proposed by member, Monika Becker, who volunteers in their siblings program. The fact that BKR is exclusively financed through donations makes them a good fit for our fundraising efforts. In addition, we look forward to participating in hands-on volunteer efforts as our relationship grows.

Their Vision

Jedes Kind hat ein Recht auf das erreichbare Höchstmaß an Gesundheit …
Wir sind Sprachrohr für Familien mit kranken und beeinträchtigten Kindern und Jugendlichen. Dabei haben wir die gesamte Familie mit ihrem besonderen Bedarf im Blick, halten Türen auf und machen Wege frei,

Every child has a right to the highest attainable standard of health.
We are a voice for families with sick and handicapped children and young people. We keep an eye on the whole family with its special needs, open doors and clear paths,

      Global Commitment

      Our international charity is always the current FAWCO Target Project. Donations are made through The FAWCO Foundation and progress is monitored and shared by FAWCO. Project Selection is currently underway. 15 applications were received by the September 30th deadline. The three shortlisted proposals were announced on January 6th... Read about them Here.

      The Target Project for Health will be announced on March 21, 2020 at the FAWCO Interim Meeting in Luxembourg. 

      Club fundraising is done throughout the year. In recent years, our main Charity events have been the Sustainable Fashion Bash and Trivia Night. In past years, the club held formal galas, benefit concerts, a Christmas bazaar, wine tastings and auctions (handbags anyone?). Not all fundraising is a major event. We also have smaller initiatives such as book sales, raffles and much more.

      *In 2006, the Club received its article of incorporation as a nonprofit organization (e.V. status) and stipulated, through its constitution, a commitment to help the local and international community at large, with a specific focus on women and children. The AIWCC aligns its charitable efforts with the FAWCO Target Program’s three year cycle, with the overarching goal to improve the lives of women and children ​​in the areas of Education, Environment, Health and Human Rights on a rotating basis. The Target Program for Health launched in March 2019 and runs through March 2022. 

      By supporting one local organization for a three-year period, we build close relationships in our community and make a meaningful difference through our financial support. Our charity partner keeps us abreast of their good works, future projects and how donated funds are being utilized.

      We are grateful for the support from these organizations.
