Every two years the Swiss Red Cross holds a charity event in Zurich to raise much needed funds to support the valuable work they do all over the world. In 2017 the event was held at the Dolder Grand (see here) and this year the venue was Haus Am See, which is situated near Wollishofen, directly on Lake Zurich.

According to Annemarie Huber-Hotz, the President of the Swiss Red Cross, every day 15,000 children and 830 mothers die all over the world. The Red Cross is committed to helping those most in danger. In 2017 alone, 5.3 million children under the age of 5 died. The main causes are complications in childbirth and disease. The organisation is active in over 30 countries around the world to help the world’s poorest and most vulnerable. The aim of this event was to raise funds to support the Red Cross’s work in this area across the globe.
