                     30 Years of

Project Tausendfüssler - Project Centipede,

.......a project with a lasting great impact!


Dear Sir or Madam, dear friends!


We hope that this information can reach many people who are open-hearted and ready to give love to children.

On March 3, 1990 - 30 years ago - we visited the orphanage in Sinmartin for the first time. It was not easy for us to cope with when we saw how willing one was to deal with babies and toddlers - the indifference with which one was towards the little ones when they lay whimpering in their cribs and could not move from weakness. They were exposed to an incredibly cruel fate to which they could not mention themselves. We are convinced that at that time we could only see the tip of a huge scandal that could not be excused with poverty.

In this context, we were delighted to receive the message from the head of the orphanage in Sinmartin at the time, Dr. Annamária Lukács notes:

"The Romanian state has adopted the care model from Project Tausendfüssler - Centipede Sinmartin, to look after orphans of babies and toddlers in foster families, as the model valid for Romania".

Dear friends of Centipede!

We are pleased to announce that on November 26th, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. in the Reformed City Church, Dorotheergasse 16, 1010 Vienna, a charity concert for the benefit of the milk project for babies and orphans in Sinmartin, Romania took place. The Sinfonia Academica Orchestra performed works by Mozart, Pergolesi and Abel under the direction of conductor Thomas Eckerstorfer. The soloists of the evening were the soprano Juri Hasegawa from Japan and the soprano Sandra Nel from South Africa.

During the break, there were rolls, sweets, coffee and non-alcoholic drinks to choose from.

A short report on the great concert evening can be found on this homepage under BLOG .

We thank the two soloists, the conductor, the ladies and gentlemen of the orchestra for a great, atmospheric concert evening.

Reports via e-mail

Dear Sir or Madam, dear friends of Centipede.

However, it seems important to us to provide you with the information about the life of the "centipede" in our own report form, which means: "We work out the illustrated text, copy it, put it in an envelope and take it to the post."

Since we know that there is not a computer with internet in every apartment, we want to keep the well-established form of our reporting to you for the time being. In future, the report will also be available on our homepage. As an additional alternative, we offer you / you to send the reports by email. We can save the expensive postage and invest the money in our milk project. In this context, we ask you to give us your e-mail address.

Thank you for your effort

Louise and Heinz Pickart
