Trained paramedic Florian Fritsch especially supports weaker and disadvantaged individuals. Humanitarian aid is particularly dear to him and his wife. The couple supports various charitable projects with their BaumannFritsch Foundation. Currently, they especially support the sea rescue of countless refugees in the Mediterranean Sea. Besides that, environmental protection is always a very important concern to the entrepreneur Florian Fritsch. The Fritsch family is also sponsor of the ALBERTINA art museum in Vienna and a supporting member of the “Freunde der Albertina” (“Friends of Albertina”) association. ALBERTINA hosts one of the world’s most significant graphic arts collections.

Support of the Hugo Tempelman Foundation
The Hugo Tempelman Foundation supports the integral work of Ndlovu Care Group, created by Dr. Hugo Tempelman in 1990, in the battle against HIV. Besides the medical assistance, AIDS is recognized and approached as a social and structural problem. Today, the project comprises several clinics implementing diverse infrastructural and cultural measures as well as creating jobs. The specific support of orphaned and traumatized children and adolescents is a special focus.
