Dr Schweitzer Universal Kinship Fund reaches £20,000

Albert SchweitzerThe AIA is delighted to announce that the Dr Schweitzer Universal Kinship Fund has reached a target of £20,000.

The Animal Interfaith Alliance launched the Dr Schweitzer Universal Kinship Fund appeal to commemorate 50 years since the death of Dr Albert Schweitzer.  It is based on the Universal Kinship Fund originally launched in 2006 by AIA Chair, Rev. Feargus O’Connor with the Dr Hadwen Trust to raise funds to promote non-animal research. In 2013 Feargus was honoured with the ‘Fundraiser of the Year’ award by the Dr Hadwen Trust for his unique fundraising achievements at his interfaith celebrations for animals events which bring together members of different faiths who share a love of animals.

Feargus said, ‘We see the vital work of the Dr Hadwen Trust as worthy of all our support because its mission is to save human and animal lives’.
