History of the Foundation

In 1997 Vera Koshil accompanied to Vienna a group of children in course of the program for children affected by the Chernobyl disaster. It was the first meeting of Ukrainian orphans and children from low-income families with father George Stockert, citizens from Aspern district in Vienna and representatives of Caritas.

Later Vera Koshil founded an organization and called it "Aspern", as ongoing support and solidarity from the residents of Austria gave confidence in the successful and long-term work. Thanks to the support of Mrs. Helga Tippel and Mr. Raymond Badelt from "Caritas Vienna", Foundation "Aspern" was able to organize  in 2000 a full-scale work to assist the residents of Kiev and Kiev region.
