Charitable Support Provided in 2017
We are very grateful to report that in 2017 the Andreas Moritz Light Trust provided focused, natural wellness assistance to children without parents in Syria, Tanzania and Viet Nam.
These heart-centered projects were made possible thanks to charitable donations from individuals in different parts of the world, augmented by proceeds from the sale of Andreas’ beautiful, inspiring book, Art of Self-Healing, an energy-healing art modality.
A charitable grant awarded to Syrian Orphans is being directed toward making positive changes in the lives of disadvantaged orphans affected by the ongoing crisis in Syria, which continues to present a critical call to action. Support is focused on providing displaced Syrian orphans with basic necessities, such as food, clothing, shelter and medical care.
The second grant of the year was awarded to The Baobab Home in Bagamoyo, Tanzania. This small, nurturing, family-run home for children without parents also received financial support in 2016 from the Andreas Moritz Light Trust. Incremental funding in 2017 focused on the children’s wellness through educational support and enhancement, as well as providing for everyday needs. This included weekly yoga instruction, natural fiber hammocks for reading and connecting, well-constructed shoes for protection when walking, school backpacks and nutritious, vegetarian food.
The third charitable grant in 2017 was awarded to Viet Dreams for the provision and installation of a drinking water filtration system in an orphanage, Dong Hoi SOS Village, in Quang Binh Vietnam. This is providing much-needed clean, potable water to 120 orphans, ages 12–18.
Your contribution will give children without parents opportunities for a brighter future. We want you to know that we are very conscientious about keeping administrative costs to an absolute minimum. In fact, over 99% of the charitable donations received are directed toward projects supporting the children.
All charitable donors (individuals, groups, companies and organizations) will receive a receipt from the Andreas Moritz Light Trust, a non-profit foundation with 501(c)(3) designation in the USA, that a bona fide tax-deductible charitable donation has been made in the USA and, therefore, can be applied to one’s tax return in the USA (acknowledged by the Internal Revenue Service as a legitimate charitable deduction).
Since we are not aware of the specific rules or policies that apply to tax-deductible charitable contributions in other countries (outside of the USA), we recommend that you please consult with your tax advisor or accountant for insight into this for the country in which you live.
