First Foundation Talk with the Queen Mother of Bhutan, Dr Auma Obama and Wolfgang Egger

Oct. 2018

Another important guest on the day was Queen Mother of Bhutan, Gyalyum Sangay Choden Wangchuck. Her foundation, RENEW, was set up in 2004 and is the only institution in Bhutan that acts as a shelter for children and women threatened by violence. Together with the foundation of PATRIZIA AG, she announced the launch of a new collaborative project in the Himalayan state: the 17th facility of the PATRIZIA Children Foundation will be established here.

 

Wolfgang Egger’s joy regarding international partnership was also evident during the panel discussion: “We’re proud to have found partners in the Sauti Kuu Foundation in Kenya and the RENEW Foundation in Bhutan – who share our philosophy and will make our joint projects successful in the long term, based on a wealth of local competence.” The First Foundation Talk of the PATRIZIA Children Foundation welcomed 100 high-level guests and was an all-round success. The event marks the beginning of further exciting events being organised by the foundation.
