Project promotion that makes a difference!
As an internationally recognised non-profit organisation, Green Cross realises projects with the aim of overcoming consequential damages caused by industrial and military disasters, pressing ahead with the clean-up of contaminated sites from the period of the Cold War, and supporting families – especially affected children – in coping with the health problems and heavy social burdens of their living situations.
Current priority projects:
- Therapy camps for children affected by the Chernobyl disaster.
- Orthopaedic projects for young victims in Vietnam (Agent Orange)
- Water – Life – Peace, a programme in Kyrgyzstan with the aim of better protecting people in Mailuu-Suu, Sumsar-Schekaftar and Aidarken from radioactively contaminated water and foodstuffs. Uranium was mined in this region during the period of the Soviet Union.
Green Cross Switzerland is ZEWO certified. You can find the published Green Cross Annual Report here. We shall be happy to answer any questions you may have concerning Green Cross or the projects that you can support.
