Lufthansa A350-900 lands in Delhi with a donation in its luggage

India CSR News Network

MUMBAI: A few days ago, Lufthansa flew the brand-new Airbus A350-900 from Munich to the Indian capital Delhi. On flight LH762 on 14 February, the youngest member of the fleet also had a special surprise on board: a donation cheque from help alliance for over 30,000 euros for the “Sunshine” education project in Delhi. With this, the Lufthansa Group’s charitable organisation has increased its commitment for the project in 2017 by half again.

More than 250 girls and boys from the Saidulajab slum in the Indian capital Delhi are currently being given the chance to attain a qualification equivalent of a high school diploma by the Sunshine Project, something which would in normal circumstances not have been possible. With this, they increase their chances on the job market. For most of the children, the Sunshine Project is a new home away from the at times catastrophic conditions in the slum; here, they receive regular meals and medical care.

The cheque was handed over by help alliance patron Vivian Spohr to Kuku Arora who launched the Sunshine Project in 2002 with his wife Priti. “Thanks to the generous donation from help alliance, we have the security in place for long-term planning and can now help even more children and young people to get their school-leaving qualifications”, said the trained tailor as he was given the donation. help alliance has supported the project since 2009.Vivian Spohr_Sunshine Project_Feb 15 2017

“Kuku and Priti Arora have performed excellent work for many years in helping children and young people to find their way out of poverty. Thanks to the intensive support and the resulting positive development, the parents are also increasingly motivated to escape the vicious cycle of poverty. We are pleased that through this financial reinforcement, we can now offer even more children prospects for the future”, said patron Vivian Spohr.

help alliiance has been closely connected with the people of India since its foundation in 1999. The charitable organisation currently supports five projects on the subcontinent. Over the past ten years it has invested around 2.5 million euros in donations in the Indian education project. This is almost 20 percent of all donations.
