Give Kids the World Founder Henri Landwirth Sadly Passes Away at the Age of 91 Henri Landwirth GKTW

Henri Landwirth, the man who devoted his life to bringing happiness to critically ill children through Give Kids the World, passed away late Monday at the age of 91.

Since Give Kids the World launched in 1989, the charity has given all-expenses-paid dream vacations to over 160,000 children and their families.

Pamela Landwirth, President and CEO of Give Kids the World and Henri’s former wife said,

“Words cannot express the sense of loss we feel today. Henri was a remarkable man who worked tirelessly to help our precious children and their families. He has left behind an enduring legacy of compassion and love.”

As most of our readers know, the team here at The DIS is a huge supporter of Give Kids the World and everything they do for families with critically ill children.
