Special Olympics celebrates 50 years  

 

Project finished on: 2018

 

 Project country: Germany

From September 24th to September 28th, 220 delegates from 45 countries gathered at the Special Olympics GLOBAL YOUTH LEADERSHIP FORUM in Baku, Azerbaijan to celebrate the Special Olympics 50th anniversary. The Forum provided a platform for discussing how people with intellectual disabilities are integrated in our society and how we can create more inclusive communities.  We are proud that our DC Lion`s Heart Foundation was a partner of this forum, featuring our executive member Oliver Sodeik as guest speaker.  Also part of our delegation were Board member Mario Hintermayer and our sports ambassador and Olympic winner Olaf Förster. Timothy Shriver, Special Olympics International Chairman, was very delighted with the commitment and together with Special Olympics Europe/Eurasia Chairman David Evangelista expressed his gratitude to DC Lion`s Heart Foundation for our support and active participation at the Forum in Baku.  It was a great international forum with a fantastic host, the Government of Azerbaijan, and many international personalities from the world of sports and politics. 

 

In his speech our Board member Oliver Sodeik presented our Project ʺSPECIAL OLYMPICS ROADSTERʺ and motivated our future ʺleadersʺ to believe in themselves and together with their friends develop and implement own projects. The supporting program was exceptionally organized. The highlight, however, was the invitation to the garden reception at the residence of the US ambassador. 

Our delegation left Baku full of emotions and highly motivated, with the good feeling that 20 years of commitment to Special Olympics is a good and important message to the outside world.


Christmas dinner for 500 homeless persons in Dresden

Project finished on: 2018

Donated amount: 2.800 €

 

 Project country: Germany

DUCATUS CHARITY would like to support the annual Christmas dinner for 500 homeless and needy persons in Dresden, which is to take place on 11 December 2018 at the Ballsport Arena Dresden. We would be very glad if you supported us in our efforts with your Charity Account. Many people face great challenges especially at Christmas time. Those who live in the streets must first physically cope with the cold temperature, but they must also  handle the emotional pain which, at that time, is frequently significantly stronger than usual. With some attention, a good meal, warmth and affection, 500 people receive something on that day which they lack throughout the most of the year. 

Thank you for your help.

Two weeks ago, Silke Leistner and I met two people at breakfast in Mönchengladbach, Gani and Daniela.

 

They are married, and after the birth of their daughter, Daniela unexpectedly suffered a severe cerebral hemorrhage and is now in a wheelchair. She finds it very difficult to speak. She is going through several speech therapies and other treatments, in order to be able to stand on her feet again, step by step. This is a great burden for the family. To achieve a faster recovery, money is needed for special therapies. We can all help with a donation from the Charity Account and bring back some sun into the life of Gani and Daniela!

The training of everyday skills, independence as well as social interactions and mutual assistance takes place through everyday activities and is reinforced in discussions with the parents and video analyses.

The LOVT camp offers families the opportunity for a time-out among like-minded people. For once, being able to breathe freely and not be “the family with the special child”!


Help for Arvid Hintze

Project finished on: 2018

Donated amount: 5.000 €

 

Project country: Germany

Arvid Hintze (3) is a bright boy, who laughs a lot. It is obvious that he has fun and is interested in his surroundings. However, what differentiates Arvid Hintze from other boys of his age, makes one inconceivably sad - he is severely disabled and suffers from cerebral palsy. At his birth, the umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck three times and a lack of oxygen caused the severe disability. Oxygen therapy might help, but there is no public help for this. The family depends on private support. Frank Felden, friend of the family and a DUCATUS team partner, donated € 4,000.-, which was then increased to € 5,000.- by DUCATUS CHARITY. We wish Julia, Danielo and little Arvid a lot of success in future therapies.  More...
