On April 13, 1949, the Austrian Post issued a four stamps set depicting Happy Childhood Events. The surtax benefited child welfare. The situation in post-war Austria was dramatic. There were a lot of children on the street, displaced families as well as abandoned children. Many families had their homes destroyed as a result of the bombing and fighting. Child malnutrition was a serious crisis, especially in the cities. Action had to be taken and school feeding programs were implemented. These programs often consisted of soup along with a roll as a school lunch.
