2012 Award: Martinsheim Visp

On 13 April 2013 – and with great joy, gratitude and pride – Martinsheim accepted the 2012 Sepp Blatter Foundation award. It was an unforgettable day for our residents and the staff of the Martinsheim nursing home for the elderly in Visp.

In presenting us with this award, the Sepp Blatter Foundation demonstrated once again the importance it places on social commitment in Upper Valais. Sepp Blatter has created a unique foundation that connects world football with regional institutions.

Be it in the world of football or when working with the elderly, you need an inner passion in order to succeed. This can be seen in both Sepp Blatter and his foundation. I therefore hope that the Sepp Blatter Foundation will continue to operate for many years to come.
