    VOX INFANTIS SWITZERLAND

    Nonprofit organization
    With about a hundred faithful members, numerous sponsors and about thirty volunteers, Vox Infantis has chosen to take direct, targeted action to help children and mothers in need. It is our goal to raise funds in Switzerland in order to support local NGOs on the ground. We have chosen trustworthy partners in Tunisia and Afghanistan, working with commitment and determination in favor of children and mothers. Our accounts are transparent, and we check the expenses incurred by the beneficiaries against the donations given to them. Besides the possibility of participating in humanitarian aid, it is this transparent financial aspect that appeals to all the people who put their trust in us.

    School and daycare Center Kunduz
    In July 2013 I went to Afghanistan. I saw for the first time the orphanage we had built in Kunduz. I met Zabi Majidi, our agent and field man who oversees the management of the Center. I also met the vice-governor of Kunduz province who approved our plan to transform the orphanage into a school and daycare center. In summary, it is our Vox Infantis Kunduz association that manages the structure, and Vox Infantis Switzerland who finances it. Despite the difficulties, the efforts undertaken during the past seven years have paid off and the house now hosts nearly 300 children and youth. This demonstrates the real needs of these communities who suffer the consequences of a war lasting for 40 years.

    La Voix de l’Enfant – The Voice of the Child Nabeul
    The nursery for abandoned new-born babies takes care of 15-20 children. 10 nurses give them love and affection helping them grow. At the same time, the Center looks for adoptive parents who will give them the home they need so much. The adoptive parents stay several days with the baby so that he can “adopt” his new parents too, and leave the Center without the impression of a second rupture. Thus, 80 % of the abandoned babies find new parents in this way. Here is the story of one of the babies. This baby was born at the beginning of the 8th month of gestation. His biological mother stayed in touch with him for 4 months, she came to visit her child from time to time, but finally she gave him for adoption. He left the nursery at 9 months and his new family stayed with him at the Center during 5 days.
    In 10 years:
    - 508 children have been hosted
    - 340 children have been adopted
    - 88 children returned to their biological mother

Founder and President of Vox Infantis

Hildegard Medina Emam

Born in 1941 in Germany, Hildegard has spent most of her adult life in Lausanne, Switzerland. In 2003, when she retired from a 35 year career in international marketing, she put her long-held dream into action: to invest her energy, knowledge and experience for the benefit of children and mothers in need all over the world. Her motto: “Retirement offers a great opportunity to make your contribution to alleviate human suffering.” Her role model? Aracely Medina, the sister of her first husband, a dedicated woman with a big heart, and the founder of “La Voix de l’Enfant” - The Voice of the Child Nabeul. Hildegard’s love for her husband Fateh Emam motivates her to dedicate herself so much to children in need in Afghanistan. For 10 years, Hildegard, grandmother of five adult boys, has been investing all her resources and time to realize this dream.

He shared his experience in a biographical narrative “Au-delà des mers salées… Un désir de liberté” published in 2007 by L’Harmattan Paris. And then in 2008, at the age of 78, he published his first novel “L’Amant arabe de Miss Anne” also with L’Harmattan Paris. Fateh Emam passed away in October 2011. His literary work and his action with Vox Infantis will survive him for a long time.

Founder of “La Voix de l’Enfant”- The Voice of the Child Nabeul

Aracely
Medina

Aracely Medina, from El Salvador, is a midwife who worked at the maternity ward and in mother and child protection centers. Janine Grenié, from France, was a professor of philosophy. These two Sisters of the Congregation of Notre Dame de Sion have lived in Nabeul for many years. In 1995 they opened the nursery for abandoned babies and in 2004 they added a second floor on top of the nursery to open a center for single mothers. Vox Infantis Switzerland helped to finance the equipment of the Center. Today, Aracely Medina has withdrawn from the current activities of “La Voix de l’Enfant” - The Voice of the Child, but she continues to go to visit the babies and the mothers, surrounding them with her love. Janine Grenié passed away in December 2013.

The manager Saloua Abdelkhalek

Saloua has worked at “La Voix de l'Enfant” for 14 years. Here is what she said about her involvement: “I do my best to lead the association, caring for the well-being of the babies in the nursery and the single mothers who come to our Center. We are facing difficult questions: the abandonment of children and the social problems of the families. I have a friendly relationship with the employees because the work these women do requires a great deal of personal and emotional dedication.”
