AUBURN HILLS, Mich.—The employees and management of the Volkswagen Group have decided to create a Foundation to assist victims of terrorist attacks in the United States. The Foundation will be funded initially with $2 million dollars (US) from Volkswagen.

The purpose of this Foundation will be to extend humanitarian help to the children of the families that have been traumatized by last week’s terrorist attacks in the United States. This will include medical and psychological assistance as well as rehabilitation and scholarships.
