Tyrrian is the  founder of the Gift Box Project. She is from North of England and came to Switzerland in 1974. She started project/appeal in 1996

"For those of you new to the appeal this is a non-religious humanitarian appeal. We send Gift Boxes to needy children in Eastern Europe, children who have never had a gift, many living way below the poverty line in desperate conditions.

Each one of these boxes has brought happiness, hope and enjoyment to a small child and for others it has also been life changing.

We hope you will help us with your participation in continuing this project helping needy children to feel loved
