On Tuesday 7 February, H.R.H. The Princess of Hanover received a 475 000 Euros cheque in AMADE's headquarters in Monaco. The funds have been raised thanks to the German press group Verlagsgruppe Passau to support AMADE's activities in Burundi.

The President of AMADE Mondiale was handed the symbolic 475 000 Euros cheque by Mrs. Angelika Diekmann, initiator of the Menschen in Europa, partner of the Verlagsgruppe Passau.

On 12 December 2011 in Bavaria, H.R.H. The Princess of Hanover has been receiving the Menschen in Europa 2011 award - a prize awarded every year in partnership with the Verlagsgruppe Passau to pay tribute to a public personality for commitment and presence on the international stage.

This symbolic donation is the final stone of a three-month awareness campaign initiated by the press group among its millions of readers. The purpose of the campaign was to highlight the activities of AMADE and its partners to support the Burundian orphans and vulnerable children.

The funds raised will enhance AMADE Burundi's efforts at least for the next two years. Thanks to the common help of AMADE Mondiale, Monacan Cooperation and Fight Aids Monaco, AMADE Burundi's support benefit to more than 30 000 people - more than 10 000 of them being orphans and vulnerable children

Access to healthcare and education, prevention of mother-to-child HIV transmission, micro-finance and support for financial autonomy of the families, are the main objectives of the program, which phase 2 is scheduled until 2014.
