Pro Juventute

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 50-centime Helvetia stamp went to youth charities.
The stamps on this 1963 FDC from Switzerland issued on 30.11.1963 is part of a set of 2 stamps featuring different flowers. The flowers shown on this stamp are carnations. Thank you Maria for this nice FDC.
