UNITED FOR AFRICA is a concerted campaign of 25 aid and humanitarian organisations and its goodwill ambassadors Anne Will (popular German anchorwoman) and Wolfgang Niedecken (Leadsinger of the German band BAP). Together with the German President Horst Köhler, who is patronising the campaign, we appeal to the German population to donate for the improvement of the conditions of life on the African continent. The big advantage of UNITED FOR AFRICA is that we offer one joint campaign with one donation account.
The aim of UNITED FOR AFRICA is to act against the conception of Africa as the "lost continent" and to attract the attention of the German public not only to the long-term plight and poverty of millions of people on the African continent, but also to their potential and the signs of hope. The main focus of this years campaign are the topics AIDS and poverty.
About 6000 people die each day in Africa of the consequences of AIDS - a fact we want to highlight with our campaign. But it is also our aim to show that in spite of AIDS, war, hunger, diseases and poverty, people in Africa do not despair but are ready to confront their fate as well as to take it into their own hands. To establish long-lasting, reasonable solutions, they need our help continually.
With the slogan UNITED FOR AFRICA we appeal to the German population for their support and call on them to donate money for the people in need in Africa. Our aim is to recognise the humanitarian challenges of our world and to demonstrate that in Germany we take our responsibility seriously and act accordingly.
All donations are directly channelled to aid projects in Africa of the organisations aligned in UNITED FOR AFRICA. Donations are distributed according to a special distribution key: 30% of the donations will be uniformly distributed among the 25 organisations. The remaining 70% are split up according to the amount that each organisation expends for aid projects in Africa.
For other net participants we can offer expert guidance through trained staff, give an expert opinion, procure expert information and establish new contacts in the field of our work.
