On Wednesday, SRF3 made a stop in Basel with its fundraising campaign "Every Rappen Counts" and broadcast from 4 to 8 pm directly from Münsterplatz. Also present was terre des hommes schweiz: Anyone who had the time and inclination to do so could have a look at our stand.

It has almost become a tradition: the Swiss Solidarity and SRF telethon in the run-up to Christmas. This week it was time again and terre des hommes schweiz was part of it: on Wednesday, 18 December 2013, Radio SRF 3 was on the air from 4 to 8 pm directly from Münsterplatz in Basel.
terre des hommes schweiz was also on site with our morphing stand.
Me born in Peru
What would we look like if we were born in Africa or Latin America? This question can be answered at our morphing stand. In doing so, we merge the portrait of one person with that of another person from our project countries. Sometimes exciting and sometimes funny portraits emerge. Some portraits and more pictures about our presence at "Every Rappen Counts" can be found on our Facebook fan page.
Live interview on SRF3
But our appearance on Wednesday was not our only commitment last week. On Monday morning Gabriela Wichser, our program coordinator for South Africa and Tanzania, gave a live interview on Radio SRF 3. She talked about the situation of children and young people in the townships of South Africa, how terre des hommes schweiz supports the partner organisation Sinani with donations and their impressive work, which opens up real chances and perspectives for many children and young people.

Statement on the police action of 25.11.22 against unauthorized demonstration in Basel

On Friday, November 25, an unauthorized demonstration in Basel ended violently. After about 200 people gathered on the Theaterplatz around 7 p.m. on the occasion of the International Day against Violence against Women, the Basel City Cantonal Police used various means such as rubber bullets to break up the demonstration. According to the police, dialogue with the demonstrators had been sought beforehand. It seems grotesque: On the same day, the cantonal police went public with the campaign "Halt Gewalt" (Stop Violence) - and on the same evening, they reacted with violence to the demonstrators, who drew attention to the same problems.

Attention: Danger of confusion!

We would like to point out that the cardboard advertising that is currently being dropped into mailboxes does not come from us, but from Terre des hommes- Kinderhilfe weltweit. In Switzerland there are three completely independent organizations with the same name: Terre des Hommes Suisse, Terre des hommes - Kinderhilfe weltweit, from which the advertisement in question originates, and terre des hommes schweiz. We therefore ask that feedback on the advertising not be sent to us. Further information on the three different organizations can be found here.
