AURORA

Project of District 199 Switzerland provides support for young families in difficulty 

Aurora - a luminous phenomenon that consists of streamers or arches of light appearing in the upper atmosphere of a planet's magnetic polar regions and is caused by the emission of light from atoms excited by electrons accelerated along the planet's magnetic field lines

The association AURORA provides support for young families in difficulty as a result of the death of a parent. AURORA seeks to provide widowed families with a renewed social network and collateral support to ensure that life can go on positively for the family despite its loss.

There are about 280 members. Each year about 20 families join the association with very little children. And about 20 families leave because their kids are grewn up.

AURORA helps the family in addition to seek legal advice with funds to ease the stress due to financial problems. So for the fees of school camps, music lessons or much more can be payed withouth any bureaucracy.

They meet in seveal areas once a month. Those meetings serve to find friends in similar situations, to cry or to laugh and just to be together with parents with minor aged children, having the same experiences by loosing their beloved partner by illness or accident.
