We are saddened to hear of the passing of Ernst Buschor, who passed away on 21 October 2023 (aged 80).

Ernst was a member of the Foundation’s Board of Trustees from 2003-2013. He was one of the most courageous politicians and the pioneer of new public management in Switzerland. He continues to have a profound influence on our work, notably on our Swiss programs.

Our thoughts are with his family at this time.

In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that anyone who wishes to do so can make a donation to the Caritas Foundation: CH69 0900 0000 6000 7000 4, Adligenswilerstrasse 15, 6002 Lucerne.
