The non-profit organisation placet supports victims of terrorism in many ways. This is done in close cooperation with the associations “Friedendorf International” and the “German-Caucasian Society”, which have direct contact with the victims in their country or origin.
The organisation is dependent on donations. All donations are 100% tax deductible.
Although the operations are carried out free of charge by plastic surgeons and our doctors, there are costs for hospital stays, medication, special therapies, orthopaedic aids, transportation, etc.
All employees of the association, including the board members, work on a voluntary basis and each case is examined by the Chairman.
Each item of expenditure is reviewed by the board.
The use of donations is subject to the greatest possible duty of care and economic appropriateness. The association also endeavours to obtain donations in kind. The expected costs, income and expenses of the association are presented annually by the treasurer, Alexander A. Baé, in a budget. A security reserve is also considered.
The general meeting discusses and approves the future budget at the annual general meeting. All payments are generally processed via the house bank and the association’s cash office – duly executed with all incoming and outgoing payments being documented (stating the reason and purpose).
The treasurer, Alexander A. Baé, is a tax advisor by profession and has a degree in business administration and has the necessary knowledge of tax laws and association rules. Of course, as required by law, an annual cash audit is carried out by elected members after timely presentation of the accounts by the financial officer.
The written cash audit report to the board of directors and the presentation of the situation to the members is determined by the statutes of the association, as is the exclusion of the influence of the board on the audit report.
