Include our foundation in your will
Syria, Ukraine, Iraq, Lebanon, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Kenya, Afghanistan… emergencies are rumbling on, and expanding everywhere. In many parts of the world, children are facing humanitarian crises, conflict or chronic poverty that jeopardise their development and undermine their rights.
But children have an amazing resource within themselves: they have tremendous potential, sometimes all they need is a little help to find the keys to their future and live it to the fullest. A future that you too can help to secure.

New inheritance law
Amendments to inheritance law in Switzerland came into force on 1 January 2023. These reforms leave the testator or testatrix more freedom with regard to their estate. By reducing the legal reserve allotted to children (descendants) and eliminating that allotted to parents (ascendants), these new legal provisions make it possible to leave a bequest to, for example, a charitable NGO, such as Terre des hommes.
