ANNUAL REPORT 2014

Letter of the president Dear friends and collaborators, What seems like a dream when the foundation was founded in 2009 is reality now: A center for young people with severe disability, fully adapted to be a home for them in the first place. We did it! We opened the doors of our LKF Center on October 26th 2014 thanks to the hard work and dedication of the construction team, coordinated by one of our board members, Elena Guembe Fesser. We finished the building in record time – only 13 months! Thank you very much to all involved! We can only conduct our projects thanks to the collaboration of many people and organizations. Especially in 2014 A BIG THANK YOU to all those who have made this building possible, that will be a support for many families. We started with hydrotherapy before the end of 2014. Actually in 2015 we are continuously increasing our therapy-offer. We still need your help to do this, or perhaps more help than ever, because implementation is not easy, as we all know. You can help us in many ways: supporting us as a member, organizing an event, volunteering, etc. The reward for all the hard work is the smile of the young people who visit the Center!
