Jutta Speidel found serious words on the subject of domestic violence at a press conference on the 25th anniversary of her Horizon Foundation.

For more than two decades, Jutta Speidel (68) and her Horizon Foundation have been helping traumatized women and their children who have lost their homes for a variety of reasons. To mark the organization’s 25th anniversary, the actress found words of gratitude at a press conference on Saturday (June 25) at one of the Horizon shelters in Munich. But she also struck a serious tone: “We are proud of what we have achieved, now we must continue to be strong.”

The number of homeless women and children continues to rise. Speidel’s appeal: “Please don’t look away – support our commitment.” The 68-year-old would like to take a closer look, especially with regard to “endangerment of children and domestic violence”. “Sometimes it is generalized and assigned too much. It would be nice if the topic of domestic violence were dealt with much more openly and critically in public.”

Third shelter in planning

At the event, which was also attended by Munich’s Lord Mayor Dieter Reiter (64), the planning of a third horizon shelter was finally announced. The building is scheduled for completion around 2025.
