About 75 Years Swiss Mountain Aid - (Stamp CTO)

For 75 years, Swiss Mountain Aid has been promoting an economic, natural and social environment for Switzerland’s mountain com- munities. The special stamp to mark its anniversary symbolizes soli- darity and bridge-building between cities and mountain regions. Swiss mountain residents should also be able to nd their future in their homeland – that is what Swiss Mountain Aid strives to achieve. The politically and denomina- tionally neutral organization was founded in 1943 and is nanced exclusively by do- nations. Mountain populations should be able to live in a secure, economic, natural and social environment. Behind this thinking is the conviction that only lively mountain regions can represent a living space and cultural homeland while at the same time offering natural experiences and relaxation. For this reason, Swiss Mountain Aid supports a wide range of projects and ini- tiatives and, in doing so, is effective in helping people to help themselves. In emer- gencies, the organization also provides quick and “unbureaucratic” help. The illustration of the commemorative stamp symbolizes solidarity between cities and mountain regions; as such, it represents bridge-building and the path to commit- ted cooperation.
