What is AVEH exactly?
AVEH stands for Association de Volontaires pour les Enfants Handicapés; a small center for children with disabilities. The center can accommodate up to 20 physically and mentally handicapped children who have been abandoned or “handed over” by relatives who are unable to care for them. Because the center has to run depending on goodwill and charity, it often lacks the most basic things such as clean drinking water and diapers. The Foundation supports AVEH with money to improve living conditions in the center and with advice on how to make the center self-sufficient over time. To achieve this, we have drawn up a number of “intermediate goals“.
