Since 2003, the Wiesbadener Bärenherz Stiftung (Heart of bears foundation) has supported facilities for families with children who are terminally ill, especially children’s hospices. It is a sponsoring foundation of private law.
A committed team of 45 full-time and volunteer staff collect donations for the two children’s hospices, Bärenherz and the Kinderhaus Nesthäkchen. Education about children’s hospice work and its important offer for severely ill children and their families is also a concern of the foundation.
In the sponsored children’s hospices in Wiesbaden and Markkleeberg near Leipzig, parents are relieved and given advice. Up to 22 seriously ill children are cared for and looked after, from the diagnosis to the death of the child and beyond.
The Kinderhaus Nesthäkchen in Laufenselden / Taunus is the home for 22 seriously ill and disabled children and adolescents. The grants of the foundation allow not only an extended range of therapies but also the fulfillment of the wishes of the children.
The three facilities are only partially funded by the care insurance. Therefore, the foundation currently spends about 2.6 million euros per year. The support of donations is the most important working basis. Only in this way can the organization continue to offer help for severely ill children and their families.
