A bad accident, a terrible diagnosis – and sudden life becomes a lived drama. Dominated by constant fear of losing a loved one, not being with him when needed, not having tried anything to help him.
In such a situation, everyone can quickly reach the limits of his psychological and physical resilience. And to the borders of our welfare state: some health-care opportunities are not recognized by the funds (not paid), medical devices or necessary fixtures and conversions in the home must be requested and approved by the Office.
Especially young families can not finance this. Especially when income is lost, because the sick child needs constant care. Or in a remote clinic must be hospitalized.
In Germany, 2,000 children develop cancer every year
In addition, there are numerous gene defects that are often difficult to diagnose, let alone to be effectively treated. – Is it not comprehensible that the person concerned can be seized after every straw, which could bring relief, relief? Or at least a few unhappy, happy moments?
The child support would help to ensure that new hope, new courage to life does not depend on the money bag.
We support parents, public authorities, social services and initiatives
From them we get clues, learn the causes and the background. With them, we are looking for solutions, exchanging ourselves, complementing ourselves to help people in need quickly, unbureaucratically and effectively. In order, for example, to bridge or shorten the time until the official authorization of medical devices. In addition, cooperation with public authorities and social services gives us more certainty in the assessment of concrete, actual needs.
All we do, we do voluntarily, free of charge. Expenses for telephone, travel expenses etc. are privately financed. That is why you can be sure that your donation to the Kinderhilfe will benefit children or families in need.
Discretion is self-evident
In principle, we pay attention to the need to protect the identity of people in need of care, to keep their names and addresses strictly confidential. Only if the family has consented to it or has its identity already been publicly known by other media, for example in the newspaper, we will name and address.
