Pro Juventute 1965
Pro Juventute is a charitable foundation in Switzerland established in 1912. It is dedicated to supporting the rights and needs of Swiss children and youth.
Switzerland has issued Pro Juventute semipostals nearly every year since 1913. Like the majority of subsequent Swiss semipostal stamps, the nonpostal funds from this Pro Juventute 5-centime Helvetia stamp went to youth charities.
The stamps on this 1965 FDC from Switzerland issued on 1.12.1965 are part of a set of 5 stamps featuring different. Thank you Maria for this nice FDC.
