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, with the objective of eventually being able to stand on her feet again, step by step. This is a great burden for the family. In order to achieve faster
recovery, money is needed for special therapies and a stairlift. During the cheque presentation, the
emotions that were stirred up brought about further donations, thus enabling us to reach a donation
result of € 3,700.-. With the support of DUCATUS Charity, we were all able to help bring back some
sun into the life of Gani and Daniela!
After the devastating earthquake on the indonesian island of Lombok, Josch Brunner, an expat from Austria, started with an initiative of support. Approximately 400 people who remained without a home are living in tents on his property in Lombok.
The wonderful island of Lombok looks like a battlefield. The centre of the earthquake was in the north of the 4.700 skm Island. Josch Brunner has been living on the island for 17 years. He was lucky, he told Austrian TV, to live in the south of the island. “Our house is still standing, it is damaged but things can be fixed. We are approximately 1000 km away from the centre of the earthquake. The more you reach north, the less is left.”
As part of the Lifing series, DUCATUS CHARITY, in cooperation with the DC Lion’s Heart Foundation, participated in the construction of a classroom of the Jürgen Höller Foundation in the “Kibera” slum in Nairobi, the capital of Kenya, with a donation of € 1,000. Further donations are to follow, as the Jürgen Höller Foundation has set big goals for itself - they plan to build 1,000 schools together with the participants of their seminars.
DUCATUS CHARITY and the DC Lion’s Heart Foundation desire to participate in such valuable work with a classroom in 2018 and an own school in the years to follow.

The donation amount was handed out in equal parts to the 400 orphan children in gift envelopes.
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.
