Your help is still needed in the future!

Primavera News 01/2020

Dear Primavera members,

This edition is special in several respects:

- As you know, Primavera e.V. was founded 30 years ago. To be precise, on March 5, 1990, 10 Bosch associates signed the foundation charter for the association "Primavera Dritte-Welt-Hilfe e.V.", today "Primavera - Hilfe für Kinder in Not e.V." We are thus celebrating our 30th anniversary this year, and you are hereby receiving a special anniversary edition of the newsletter.

- The layout of the newsletter has remained unchanged for many years. With this anniversary edition we would like to present Primavera News to you at the same time in a new and more modern guise. The new layout should ensure a better overview and readability of the articles. Please judge for yourself whether we have succeeded in this.

Spring ("Primavera") usually stands for joy, new beginnings and a new beginning. Unfortunately, this year is somewhat different. Our anniversary falls at a difficult time for all of us. We had wished to be able to celebrate the 30th anniversary of our association together with you in a carefree manner within the framework of many musical events. Unfortunately, all planned performances had to be cancelled in the first half of the year, and the Corona crisis still has us firmly in its grip. On the other hand, we are very pleased that many members and donors have already complied with our request for a special donation. We have already received well over EUR 20,000 in extra Corona donations.

We would like to thank all donors for this!

These generous donations enable us to compensate for the charity events that have been cancelled up to now, so that we are able to maintain the sustainable help for the children in need so far. However, none of us know how long this crisis will last. We must currently assume that further, if not all, events will have to be cancelled this year. The calendar of events on page 14 is therefore only valid with reservation. We would therefore ask you to continue to support us in ensuring that the crisis does not affect our ongoing projects around the world.

In the News you will find a review of the development of Primavera over the last 30 years. Interviews with founding members show "how it all began". The then 10 founding members have now grown to more than 1500 members. You can also read in the newsletter how the association wants to continue to develop positively.

Of course we will also present new projects in our news. A special focus of the current issue are "impressive life stories" of young people who were able to experience the help of Primavera as children and teenagers. These life stories impressively show how our sustainable projects have paved the way for these people to lead a self-determined life.

At this point, we would like to thank our colleague Petra Itzinger again, who created this newsletter with great commitment.

Seen in this light, a lot has happened, but more than ever, there is still a lot to do to help children and young people.

Your help is still needed, because only through your generous donations - for which we are very grateful - can Primavera continue to support the numerous international projects and work with the many Bosch associates working on a voluntary basis.

We would like to thank you very much in advance for your help.

With best regards and good wishes,
Your Primavera Team
