Countdown to the 50th Consecutive Donation: No. 19 – Austria 30/05/2007

Elternitiative Project – Vienna, Austria

For the visit of the Tartan Army to Vienna, the Sunshine Appeal donated to a project which provided computer training for children and young people suffering from cancer and related illnesses. The donation was to assist paying the tutor who provided the training for the European Computer Driving Licence.   To enable the children to complete the training more easily, the tutor offered training at a patient`s bedside and would visit them at home when it was necessary.

TASA were met by Susanne who we had communicated with, a volunteer, and a parent involved in the project.  Susanne explained that two of the young people who should have been for computer training, were too vulnerable to be amongst people due to their reduced immunity.  The TASA party met 3 of the young people doing the training and one boy Stephan who was trained as a facilitator.  The tutor (also called Stephan) told us how much he enjoyed his job and how rewarding it was when the children brightened up when he went to the ward to do some training.  Full Story Here…
