Guido Fluri

Guido Fluri is a famous Swiss entrepreneur. He spent his childhood in a foster home, with foster families and his grandparents. His life story has shaped his humanitarian and political work. His foundation is particularly active in the field of child protection. In 2010, Guido Fluri launched a project to reappraise Swiss children’s homes. In 2014, Fluri launched a popular initiative on the subject of foster children, the “Wiedergutmachungsinitiative”. The initiative was also attracting international attention. In September 2016, the Swiss parlament adopted the counter-proposal to the initiative. The victims received a solidarity contribution and the history of the abuses in Switzerland was comprehensively reviewed. Due to his strong commitment in recent years, especially on the issue of compulsory social measures, Fluri is considered a political integration figure. Among other things, Guido Fluri was awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of Lucerne. In 2019, Guido Fluri was received by Pope Francis for a private audience to discuss abuses in the Catholic Church in Switzerland. The pope officially apologized to the victims of abuse. The perpetrators, he said, should be brought to secular courts. It was the first time the pope spoke out with such clarity on the issue. In 2020, Fluri announced a European initiative to deal with abuses.
