In conjunction with the Mermaid Ball, the Johaniter Order will be raising money to benefit the homeless shelter "Giv Din Hånd" in the North-Western part of Copenhagen. All proceeds will benefit the homeless as the Johanniterhjælpen works solely on a volunteer basis.
The Johanniter Order (the Order of Saint John) has a +900 year history of aid for the sick and the poor. Today the Johanniter is active in 39 countries around the world running hospitals, retirements homes, kindergartens, etc. The international emergency aid organizations of Saint John (collaborating through Johanniter International) have a total of 13,000 employees, 29,000 volunteers and 1.5 million supporters.
The charity Johanniterhjælpen was founded in 2013 and is supporting a homeless shelter and a children’s home.
If you wish to make a donation to the Johanniterhjælpen, you can do so on the Mermaid ball web shop up to a month after the ball or at the ball in person
At the end of dinner at the ball, a preliminary collation amount will be announced. The full amount raised will be announced after the ball when all donations have been counted.
The Johanniter Order is very grateful for all your donations. No amount is too small.
