Preschool saved thanks to HOPE – by Alexander von Wiedenbeck

HOPE – by Alexander von Wiedenbeck continues to make good progress and has meanwhile generated the enormous sum of 40,000 euros. Following the successful project of the Training & Health Center, as well as the three water stations in Inayawan, I have once again kept my eyes and ears open for the projects of the action group Children in Need, in which the photographs of HOPE – by Alexander von Wiedenbeck were created are. Since it is important to me that the funds are used as effectively as possible and, above all, sustainably, I am pleased to inform you that I have once again found a nice project in education.

HOPE – the film about the exhibition

The premiere of the exhibition HOPE – by Alexander von Wiedenbeck in my hometown Eggenfelden was a complete success in all respects. More than 300 invited guests to the vernissage and almost 1,000 visitors during the exhibition time were able to generate a total of over 25,000 euros in donations by selling the exhibits and the exhibition catalog for the cemetery and dumpsite children at the Philippines. A result that can be seen, especially for a place with just 14,000 inhabitants.

The first aid project due to HOPE – by Alexander von Wiedenbeck

The first aid project financed by HOPE – by Alexander von Wiedenbeck is in the middle of implementation. For the dumpsite children (and their families) in Inayawan we were able to build three water supply stations and a sanitary facility (washing area / WC). Just the water stations helped enormously in the region, because people had previously go several kilometers into the city and buy water very expensive in canisters. More than 900 people now benefit from the water stations.

HOPE by Alexander von Wiedenbeck

HOPE – exhibition catalog

Hope dies last – so they say. But is that really the case? Can there be hope, when children live in cemeteries and have to spend the night in graves? Can there be hope, when young girls, barely eight years old, are molested by their uncle or grandfather? Can there be hope, when children search from dawn to dusk in rubbish dumps for usable materials, so that if they are lucky they will get a meal at the end of the day? Can there be hope, when a girl forced into prostitution already has two abortions behind her?

The Crowdfunding for HOPE

My basic idea two years ago was to give something back. It can be asserted without qualification that we in the western world have a very high standard of living and should be thankful to have been born in such a world – by no means are all people so lucky! For this reason, I contacted 10 aid organizations in 2014 and offered my help and support. I wanted to do what I could with my passion for photography to make a contribution toward a better world and assume social responsibility within reportage photography. After considerable research, I soon found a very special project. After that, I flew in January 2015 to the Philippines together with the action group children in need e.V. and visited their projects there with the children at the graveyards and rubbish dumps.
