Each year the UNWG financially supports many children’s charities in Austria and the developing world.  This project-based programme is organised for the sole purpose of benefitting children in need.  The UNWG charity programme assists abused children, those having restricted access to education, children with serious health problems, children having no access to clean drinking water, victims of calamity or catastrophe, orphans, children with special needs or children suffering from extreme poverty or starvation.

fter many months of hard work reviewing more than 200 applications, the UNWG announced the projects approved for charity funding in 2016. The total approved amount is €257,837 for 38 projects in 32 countries. This amount was raised by members of the UNWG in 2015 through a variety of activities, including the International Festival-Bazaar.
