"Our Foundation’s work is based upon our family’s humanitarian values and on professional expertise. We think that our family’s charitable work should be open, consistent and focused on long-term sustainability. We believe that everyone, regardless of age and social standing, has the right to lead an interesting, meaningful and vibrant life. With the help of professionals, we are trying to gain a better understanding of how this might be achieved.".
"Whenever we decide to focus on a particular charitable cause, we rely a great deal on our personal values. This is natural for a family charity. For the same reason, we always keep track of results very carefully. After all, the Foundation is not just our child: it represents our responsibility to society and all the people we are seeking to help."
