Presentation

NHS so sollte es sein (8)

The association NOMA-HILFE-SCHWEIZ was founded in Kusnacht (Zurich) in July 2005. In September 2005 the association was approved as a member by the International NoNoma Federation and in April 2007 the cantonal tax department of the canton Zurich recognized NOMA-HILFE-SCHWEIZ as a non-profit-Organisation and declared the association as tax-exempt. All donations to NOMA-HILFE-SCHWEIZ are therefore tax deductible in all Swiss cantons.

NOMA-HILFE-SCHWEIZ engages for prevention, alleviation and elimination of the disease supporting all preventive, surgical and nursing measures in the “fight against Noma”. Our activity knows no geographical boundaries.
