Supported projects

HelpAlliance has been funding an increasing number of projects run by Lufthansa colleagues, since 2005. This is owed to great results in terms of donations coming in and the energy of Lufthansa employees to help others. It has been noticed for a long time that Lufthansa employees show a very strong commitment for people who are off much worse than themselves. On their worldwide travels, be they private or on duty, they do not only see the bright side of things, but also those that are in a bad way.
