It all started with an aid transport to Chernobyl: Journalists Nikolai Behr and Jörg Allgäuer decided to found the International Committee: Journalists Help. The plight of the Chernobyl surviving children prompted them to help the needy they encountered in their work as media professionals. A short time later, on July 11, 1993, the association was entered in the register of associations at the Munich District Court under number 14626.
