i’m organizing a charity event and would like to involve the naturheilzentrum bottrop.

targeted funding priorities

social commitment is a matter of the heart for the two alternative practitioners, farid zitoun and christian rüger. their regular and Personal commitment in the social sector is visible evidence for that. meanwhile, the demand for sponsorships, club memberships, monetary and material contributions, as well as Personal attendance at events is so huge that not of all these requests can be met with a good conscience. on the one hand, a true commitment takes a lot of time, on the other hand, supporting too many projects means not really being able to satisfy the individual matter. the consequence: public awareness regarding the importance of such projects decreases. in order to prevent this from happening, farid zitoun and christian rüger have decided to support only a few selected projects – ‘in camera’ and with a lot of Personal commitment.
