At the moment parentless children between 8 and 20 years are supervised in terms of school and job and prepared for an independent life.
The work in our administration office is made by honorary employees. In the year 2000 the lifetime achievement of Heiner Buttenberg – the City Hotel Meckenheim – was added to the foundation’s property.
The foundation is generating lease incomes of the hotel every month however it is still dependent on additional donations.
