Fondation Ste Zithe
The future of the ZithaWerke
The times may have passed for young women to opt frequently for a life as a nun, and therefore there may not be new ZithaSisters too, but the importance and relevance of their values remain. Through the Fondation Ste Zithe, the works of the ZithaSisters are set to be continued permanently.
The Fondation Ste Zithe is a state-recognised charitable foundation under Luxembourg law, founded in 1995 by the ZithaSisters in Luxembourg*. As a charitable organisation, the foundation helps the needy, the elderly and the sick, working for social and charitable causes in Luxembourg and Malawi.
* The statutes of the Fondation Ste Zithe were last updated in 2020.
Our main areas of support
In Luxembourg, the work of the Fondation Ste Zithe is focused on promoting projects within the ZithaGroup. Through personal care and good contacts with residents, their families and all those who make avail of the various services of the ZithaGroup, those in charge have a clear picture, of which needs are to be addressed, which services are lacking and what is needed to provide the elderly and the sick with a little more quality of life, even here in Luxembourg. The Fondation Ste Zithe is pleased to be able to promote and support such initiatives with the help of your donations.
In Malawi, the focus of support is on St. Gabriel’s Hospital in Namitete, built up by the ZithaSisters. We work closely with Eng oppen Hand fir Malawi and Zikomo – organisations also founded by the ZithaSisters – in implementing projects to improve healthcare, education and development.
