One of the most rewarding aspects of the AIWC is giving back to our local community. In the past, the AIWC has sponsored the Spring Charity event to raise funds for a charitable organization or cause. The specific charity is chosen by a process that involved the entire membership.

In the past, the AIWC has donated thousands of Euros to many worthy causes. For a list of charitable organizations and causes from past years, please click on the "History & Background" tab of this section.

The 2015-16 Charity recipient is Hilfe für krebskranke Kinder Frankfurt e.V., a non-profit association dedicated to helping children with cancer and their families through financial and emotional support. The AIWC’s gift of support from our Spring Charity Event proceeds will directly support their Sportstherapie Program. This program, through the Goethe Universitätsklinik, offers fun and fitness training, by way of sports physical therapy, for children who are going through chemotherapy treatment. Not only has this program shown to reduce the side effects of chemotherapy, but it also gives the children a means of play, and a sense of “normalcy” during what can be a very depressing and isolating time in a child’s life – helping to keep the body and spirit strong.

Since this is a relatively new program, health insurance does not cover the expenses of this treatment. Instead, the only way to keep this program going and developing further is through private donations. With your support and the backing of the AIWC, the funds raised at this year’s charity event will help them continue this wonderful program, and help some very special children in need.
