This amount of one million francs is the starting capital of a fund created by the association Secours d’Hiver. This fund will be operational from March 26 and will be able to issue initial contributions such as food and childcare vouchers.
The objective of this “Fund for Families in Distress” is to relieve the serious financial difficulties of families affected by the coronavirus pandemic in Switzerland. It will provide rapid, unbureaucratic transition services before state aid takes effect.
