The Association for Quality of Life Mother Earth aims to preserve the natural heritage and tradition honoring nature and this planet. We are a voluntary, independent, non-political and non-profit group of ordinary people. Our goal is to encourage a natural way of living in a natural environment and help people become aware of the importance of preserving natural heritage.
We believe this is highly important in the times ahead.
Since our recommended minimal donations help us cover only the basic and most necessary expenses of organising camps and activities during that time, you are most welcome to contribute otherwise:


Financial or material donations
If you’re willing or have an option to help the association by contributing your own share, we would be glad if you could contact us.
We sincerely thank everyone, who support our activities with addittional financial or material contributions.

Thank You and be well!
