JAIPUR: Austrian Magdalena Malzner celebrated her 50th birthday in Nevta area of Jaipur district on Saturday as proof of her special bonding with the Pink City.The place where she celebrated the birthday was not a hotel but a care home for children living with HIV/AIDS . The building was constructed with funds Malzner raised over the past five years from Austria to give a permanent residence to 40-odd children, who lost their parents to HIV/AIDS. These children have been living rented homes for the past 12 years and forced to shift at least 15 times.The birthday celebration was made special as the new building for the care home was inaugurated on the same day , As Reported By TOI.
  • According to the Newspaper,”I will never forget this birthday,” Malzner told ToI.Malzner raised 60,000 Euros on her own and persuaded an organisation called Karibu World, which chipped in with 60,000 Euros for the care home. “I raised 60,000 Euros and Karibu World also contributed an equal amount. Since Karibu World receives funds from the Austrian government, we can say that the government too helped in the construction of the building,” she said.It was a challenging task for Malzner to raise funds in her country.
