On December 10, the Fund Forum Representative Office in Vienna co-organized a charitable event in partnership with the Austrian branch of Lions Club. The event sought to draw public attention to people with disabilities.
The event unfolded at Michaelerplatz, a famous square in the heart of Austria crowned by Hofburg Palace, and included a sale of punch, a drink popular with Austrians. The funds raised by the sale will go toward supporting children with disabilities living in various regions in Austria. This year Lions Clubs’ partners in organizing the event also included RaiffeisenBank-Wien, Delloite, Der Mann and Konrad & Justich among others.
The members of Lions Club were also provided with information about the Fund Forum’s activities and projects to develop healthcare and advocate healthy lifestyles among the youth as well as about the activities overseen by “In the Name of Life” National Breast Cancer Association and the Women’s Council. The guests also learned about the book “Fund Forum presents Uzbekistan”, published by the Fund Forum. One of the highlights of the event is an agreement reached by the sides to organize a similar event in December next year and to channel the funds raised into the treatment of women diagnosed with breast cancer in Uzbekistan.
- “I’m impressed by the amount of work carried out by the Fund Forum in Uzbekistan. It deserves utmost respect. I’m particularly impressed by the Fund Forum’s efforts to help women living with breast cancer. This is huge help for women struggling with the disease and this sort of activities is very important.”
