The Diplomatic Council invited Zero Mothers Die to their annual All Nations New Year’s Gala 2015 at the Grandhotel Hessischer Hof in Frankfurt as one of the 150 guests from diplomacy, economy and society. Our co-founder, Dr. Veronique Thouvenot, attended on behalf of the Zero Mothers Die initiative, which was highlighted at the Gala as a key social and humanitarian project supported by the Diplomatic Council.
Here is an excerpt from the Diplomatic Council's website: http://www.diplomatic-council.org/fr/dipomatic-council-new-years-gala-2015/
In line with the objective to assist the social commitment indicated in the TBL, Secretary General Hang Nguyen introduced three humanitarian and social projects that are supported by our Diplomatic Council: Tareto Maa fights against female genital mutilation and forced child marriages; White IT is an alliance against child abuse and Zero Mothers Die is a global initiative to save the lives of pregnant women and their newborns.
The Diplomatic Council’s social engagement has motivated two DC members to set a shining example: Wolfgang A. Braun, Chairman Global Wealth Forum, and Antonio Sommese, Director Global Wealth Forum, handed over a donation check of €1.000 to assist above-mentioned projects. A big thank you to both gentlemen! Their exemplary function has again incited an anonymous donator to add another € 2.000. As a result, all three projects will receive a donation of respectively € 1.000 each – we wish to express our sincere thanks on behalf of all children, young people and mothers who are preserved from a terrible fate!
We give a very special Thank You to our wonderful donor and to the Diplomatic Council!
