To the rescue of wounded innocence

Created in 1980 by Edmond Kaiser, free of any ideology, the principal objective of the Foundation is to search for, discover and provide immediate help for profoundly wounded human beings, children, women and men, met in the depths of their suffering. Accompaniment in the medium to long term. One by one.

Sentinelles is present in several African countries, in Colombia, in Switzerland, with work programmes related to often neglected distress, supported by donations from the public. Some videos show the work of Sentinelles in these countries.

Interview Believe, undertake, hope.
In the beginning,
always by the smallest part.
From the smallest part a star will be born,
and from the star, a constellation.
Until things change.

Edmond Kaiser

We are pleased to announce that on December 8, 2021 Sentinelles was awarded the ZEWO label. This marks the successful conclusion of a fruitful work that started more than a year ago. It is the certainty that Sentinelles is relentlessly pursuing its mission to provide honest and responsible assistance to people in serious distress. Thank you for your trust.
