The gap between those owning much and those who do not have anything is increasing continually. Especially children and youths have to struggle hard with the poverty. The poverty of the children usually means poverty of the parents as well. The Leipziger Kinderstiftung (Children's foundation Leipzig) wants to contribute, especially in Leipzig and the region, to a better life for children and youths who do not have anything, to give something to the weakest members of society and to reduce their poverty. A roof above their head, a warm bed, a warm meal, clothes, toys, books and material for school and the participation in school and leisure activities belong to the things made possible by the foundation. Children are the most valuable commodity of society. They are dependent from daily help. Children are our future. The children's foundation does not want to watch, but to act.
