Charity auction: 35.500 euros for “Welthungerhilfe” and the Ukraine

It was at the end of April at the international dressage tournament Horses & Dreams in Hagen that a special horse made of plastic was auctioned off for a charity campaign. On Sunday, the horse moved from Hof Kasselmann to Schloss Achleiten in the Ukrainian national colors and with a graveyard dove on its neck.

The four-legged peace ambassador was worth 30,500 euros to Sissy Max-Theurer and her daughter Victoria. Tournament organizer Ullrich Kasselmann added another 5,000 euros, so that Welthungerhilfe and the aid projects for Ukraine now benefit from 35,500 euros.

At the charity organization "Welthungerhilfe", donations are invested in various humanitarian projects. One of these is "Skill Up!", which was presented by the Secretary General and Chairman of the Executive Board of Welthungerhilfe, Mathias Mogge, at the charity event. Under the program, young people and especially women in countries with high youth unemployment - particularly in Asia and Africa - are helped to learn a state-recognized profession in their home countries after leaving school. Mogge said 20,000 people have gone through this project so far. 80 percent of them later found employment in their learned profession.
