A summer party for HEMAYAT
In the past year HEMAYAT has supported 705 heavily traumatised persons, who, due to war, torture and persecution were forced to leave their countries. Currently, 311 people, among them 41 children, are waiting for a treatment place. Which means, except in the case of a high suicide risk, that they need to wait at least one and a half years for the beginning of their treatment. To counter this unbearable state of emergency we will celebrate again this year for the good cause!
When: On Friday, 16 May 2014 at 7 pm
Location: Palais Schönburg
Rainergasse 11, 1040 Vienna
