Liechtenstein banks to pay for holiday activities

Together with the Office for Social Services, the LBA has organized a free program of holiday activities for children. This is aimed at easing the burden during the summer holidays on families that have faced serious challenges in connection with the coronavirus crisis.

The ‘Freude schenken’ (Spreading joy) campaign offers children living in Liechtenstein between the ages of 3 and 16 a varied program of holiday activities. The Liechtenstein Bankers Association (LBA) is to cover the costs of this on behalf of all banks in the country. This campaign is designed to benefit families facing huge challenges because of the pandemic situation. Moreover, it aims to offer financial support to participating companies, institutions and associations that encountered difficulties during the coronavirus crisis.

This holiday program was developed by the Office for Social Services in conjunction with the LBA. The activities on offer include a day out at a rope park, three days getting up close with nature, observing weather patterns, taking measurements, building and making a fire for children aged 6-12 or even a five-day camping trip for 9-16 year-olds. New activities are regularly being added at the website ferienspass.li, according to a press release. The website has already been set up and is being jointly managed by aha, an organization offering help and information for young people, and the Liechtenstein children’s lobby.

“We are well aware that families in particular have made and will continue to make an often-undervalued contribution to solving the coronavirus crisis”, according to Simon Tribelhorn, Director of the LBA. “At the same time, they are a group that has been particularly affected by the coronavirus crisis. The ‘Freude schenken’ campaign is both a sign of solidarity on the part of the banks as well as a small way of saying ‘thank you’ to all families”.
