Mia Terese jansson foundation in action

The aid of our Foundation with limited resources is more symbolic than financially significant in enabling actions. However, such small streams gradually grow into large watercourses in this world. Therefore, we try to be a part of this process.

Until now (year 2019) our Foundation has not paid any compensations for travel or accommodation expenses, daily allowances nor fees excluding auditing, accounting and office expenses.

The activities of our minor Foundation have not yet gone beyond the first aim (help in grief work). When there is so much grief work around, the resources are not sufficient for other activity.
