Fritz Kaiser on the launch of the Private Aid Program SMILE
Since the beginning of this year, the coronavirus has taken our world and our everyday life hostage. A previously unthinkable scenario became reality and we have been living in a state of exception for months. This brings misfortune to families and friends around us. With the SMILE Private Aid Program we want to help families and small business owners who have been struck.
With the SMILE Private Aid Program, we are making up to 1 million Swiss francs available for Families in Liechtenstein who are financially affected by the corona crisis and who are not helped by a state rescue fund. The same applies to families in other countries of the world, who are in a similar situation and who have business connections with us.
