The success of any foundation depends on people willing to fight for a common goal. So far, the foundation is mainly run by volunteers and only the manager of our centre and our accountant are paid for his or her time and effort. We praise ourselves lucky to have this wonderful team of dedicated volunteers.
The board works voluntarily as well.

Where an enthusiastic crew makes a foundation thrive, the actual establishment of the foundation would of course have been impossible without the incredible generosity of loyal friends, benefactors and sympathisers.
