We support the project and association “HELP DIRECT” by Franz Grandits in Burkina Faso for years. Burkina Faso is a country without access to the sea in the infamous Sahel zone in West Africa. It is one of the world’s poorest countries.
In 1996, Franz Grandits, a retired carpenter from Stinatz, founded the association ” HELP DIRECT “. He is the chairman of “HILFE DIRECT” and has travelled many times to Burkina Faso in order to set up and organize all his projects. Since 1996 the list of projects that have been realized by the association (only finanzed with private donations) is impressive. Schools for more than 7,000 children were built as well as hospitals, churches, homes for children, mother-child homes, pharmacies and carpentry training-shops.
