Friedensdorf International Charity Profile
PEACE VILLAGE INTERNATIONAL was established on July 6th , 1967 as a citizen's initiative to help children in areas of war and crisis. The innocent victims of war deserve immediate help, unfettered by "red tape." As services have expanded since the village's founding, the children have remained the focus. The program now offers medical help in countries from which children come, in addition to medical services and rehabilitation offered in Europe.
Since 1967, PEACE VILLAGE has been helping innocent children from war torn countries and crisis areas worldwide. The three main areas of our work are:
Medical help for sick and wounded children who cannot, for various reasons, be helped in their native countries, but who can be treated in Europe.
Improvement of local medical facilities in war and crisis areas.
Educational work on awareness of and involvement in social issues and conflict resolution.
PEACE VILLAGE INTERNATIONAL is a non-profit charity, solely financed by donations and membership fees.
Several times each year, PEACE VILLAGE INTERNATIONAL carries out large humanitarian aid missions and rescue flights. Wounded and sick children are brought to Germany, and children who have already been treated, are returned to their families. Medical supplies and warm winter clothes are carried to our partner organizations all over the world. PEACE VILLAGE finances most of the assistance through donations and memberships dues.
Given the longevity of the PEACE VILLAGE aid projects, the establishment of the PEACE VILLAGE FOUNDATION ("FRIEDENSDORF-Gemeinschafts - Stiftung") was a necessary step to protect PEACE VILLAGE's future The establishment of the foundation was officially presented to the public on November 21st , 2001. It is the task of the foundation to ensure that the financial structure of PEACE VILLAGE is sound.
What then is the difference between a donation to the foundation and a donation to PEACE VILLAGE? Donations to PEACE VILLAGE are used directly for the current expenditures, while donations to the foundation are invested profitably, so a part of the work can be financed by the yields. The funds become more independent of the dangers of a fluctuating contribution level.

Friedensdorf International Donation Information
There is almost nothing that PEACE VILLAGE cannot use, since we serve as a distribution centre. Primarily we are looking for donations that can be used directly for the children in the Village or our partner organizations all over the world. In addition we are looking for donations that we can sell in our Second-Hand Shops, located in the nearby cities of Oberhausen and Duisburg, or on our large flea market during the annual village festival. The profits made by these shops flow into the work of PEACE VILLAGE in order to support the help for the children of war and crises areas.
