The Rotary-Club Küssnacht-Rigi-Meggen collected 30’000.- in a golf charity competition in favor of Interplast Switzerland. Urs Hug and Elvira Bodmer had the honor to receive this great check after presenting the current Ghana-Project.
Thank you very much Rotary-Club! The money will be carefully spent on medical equipement and medication for our next missions.
Unfortunately, we had to cancel our hand surgery mission in Ghana in November 2021. Because of the difficult entry and exit regulations due to Covid-19 we have to postpone the mission to the next year. It was a difficult but reasonable decision.
Thank you for your support.
Dear Friends of INTERPLAST Switzerland,
2020 is gradually taking its course. We all have experienced the limitations of the pandemic in recent months. After the pandemic, problems having been removed from the agenda need to be tackled again. But what does it mean: After the pandemic? When will it be? They just exist the “other” problems. That is why we will be doing our outreach in Bamako/Mali from Dec 4th – 13th, 2020 where the focus will lay on facial and breast reconstructions. Associations live from far-sightedness of their helpers, from the fact of investing time and from donations. In today’s reflection, it seems to me that we have neglected these facts. One month before the turn of the year, on the one hand, I would like to thank all those who have contributed to our last missions – without you, nothing works in our association and on the other hand, I ask all the friends of INTERPLAST Switzerland to continue working, getting involved and above all: Stay healthy.
Mission in Bamako/Mali
From 4 to 13 December 2020 another mission in Mali is being planned, primarily with reconstructive operations after NOMA diseases, burns and operations form tumour diseases (especially breast cancer). The mission is taking place in cooperation with "Ensemble pour Eux". Donations would greatly facilitate our work
The restaurant Höchi in Hirzel has thought up a great fundraising campaign. A "Frässsack" is available with various picnic contents. 5 CHF per every bag sold for INTERPLAST. In addition, a female artist exhibiting and selling her pictures in the restaurant Höchi. Per sold picture likewise 10 CHF extra to that.
We thank you very much and hope for many hikers and art enthusiasts.
