Les Amis de Svieta

10 years Les Amis de Svieta (Switzerland)

In November 2010 we celebrated our 10th anniversary!



The outcome of our 10 years of activity is rather impressive:

  • about 80 children were helped
  • projects in 20 different orphanages were realized
  • 20 trips to Ukraine
  • about sFr. 350’000 .- donations received from 422 donors from Switzerland, from further donors from Germany, New Zealand, Ireland and Spain
  • associations founded in France and in America
  • partnerships established with various organizations
  • an organizational structure established in Ukraine
  • 8 Newsletters published in two or three languages
  • website in three languages with many articles
  • a large online album with many pictures
  • hardcopy booklet with many pictures

It all began in the hot summer of 2000, when we met the girl named Svieta. Who would have thought we’d still be active in 10 years time? Probably not many, and certainly not us. In fact it is thanks to your great help and support in all of its forms in all those years, that we were able to assist those in need. Thank so much!

We celebrated the 10 years anniversary with a typical ‘St-Martin’ meal on November 21st, 2010 in Saint-Brais (Jura, Switzerland).

Thanks to your kind and generous ongoing support we will continue for another 10 years and more! 🙂
