Founder // Bionicman, Give CHILDREN a Hand, Comic Creator
Michel was born without a right hand. His heart‘s desire is that all children have access to hand prostheses. Therefore he founded Give CHILDREN a Hand. Next to physical aid, children also need role models, which support them mentally, protect and strengthen their self-esteem. That‘s why we created the superhero Bionicman and published his adventures in comic books. On his „Rise & Be Nice Tour“ Bionicman visits schools, children‘s hospitals and sport camps. He motivates children in a playful way to embrace humanity and acceptance. The children learn that every person is special and that a supposed weakness can also become a personal strength.
