On the occasion of the 75th birthday of Archbishop Christoph Cardinal Schönborn, a festive concert will take place in St. Stephen's Cathedral on 24 January 2020. The programme includes the Great Mass in C minor, KV 427, by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The donations go to the aid organizations Open Hospitals - Medical Care in Syria and Le+O (support for people in need in Austria).
"Open Hospitals" ("Open Hospitals")
is a project to ensure free treatment and care for the most needy, children and infants, single mothers and the injured also at the "Italian Hospital" run by the Don Bosco Sisters in Damascus.
Le+O - Food and Orientation
"We have repeatedly missed out on dinner because the money was no longer enough," says Johann Walter, the father of the family. Like Mr. Walter, there are about 393,000 people in Vienna who are affected by poverty. This is where the Caritas Project Le+O steps in. In ten parishes in Vienna, fresh and preserved food as well as hygiene articles are distributed once a week to people in need. In addition, social workers help to find a way out of poverty. Around 11,700 people were supported by the Le+O project last year. More than 363 tons of food were distributed to people in need.
