The Daniele and Christoph Berglar Foundation based in Cologne was founded in 2003 with the purpose of assisting the poor , especially children and other needy from the slums of large cities of the developing world (Asia, Africa , Latin America and Eastern Europe). The proceeds of the donated capital are benefiting non-profit organizations that serve the foundation's purpose. The Foundation is subject to the supervision of the district President of Cologne.
The Foundation realizes its purpose by identifying projects and supporting organizations that have proven in the past that they can handle the resources efficiently and productively that are made available to them based on humanitarian beliefs and strong values. The sisters of Mary meet these criteria in the opinion of the Management Board and Board of Trustees of the Foundation and have therefore been supported since the beginning of our operations. They work with great success in South Korea , the Philippines, Guatemala , Mexico, Honduras and Brazil
Through visits at location, the members of the Executive Board or Board of Trustees get a direct impression of the projects supported by the Foundation. The administration of the Foundation is carried out on a voluntary basis by the members of the board and the board of trustees.
