Jiffy honors Henry Muske’s support for children – Berlin.de

Berlin Mayor Franziska Giffey thanked former world boxing champion Henry Maske for his longstanding commitment to low-income children.

On Wednesday, Giffey visited the Henry Musk Foundation holiday camp in Beetsee (Potsdam-Mittelmark) with the former boxing pro. “Holiday offers like this allow socially disadvantaged children a participation in life that is often denied them otherwise,” said Giffey.

In Berlin, nearly one in three children live in a home that benefits from basic security, the mayor explained. “The purpose of holiday camps is to give children and young people self-esteem, take a week away from their routine and come back with an enhanced mood.”

Maske has been involved with his foundation for socially disadvantaged and poverty-stricken children for more than 20 years, the news agency said. More than 500 children, including one, spent part of their summer vacation at summer camp.
