Diseases on the advance

In the 21st century, medicine has developed rapidly. The diseases mutate and spread even faster. The children are particularly affected.

The poor environmental conditions, the Chernobyl disaster, the improper processing and storage of radioactive and radiation-contaminated substances and materials as well as the poor quality of water and food are just some of the reasons for the rising number of children getting sick. Several hundreds of thousands of children suffer from serious diseases: cancer, heart diseases, epilepsy, skin diseases, orthopedic and genetic diseases, severe congenital diseases.

It is not only about Africa, Syria or India, but also about neighboring countries like Ukraine, Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Georgia, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Azerbaijan and others.

No donations no hope

For technical and financial reasons, medicine is lagging behind in these countries. In addition, there are not enough specialists as well as too little practical experience in the medical facilities. Children often die due to medical malpractice and wrong treatment. Counterfeit drugs are also a big problem.

Very often the treatment has to take place abroad (Germany, Switzerland or USA), since some diseases can not be treated in the home country. 

It is hardly known in Germany, but 70-85% of the population in the countries of the former Soviet Union live in poverty. The political and economic situation aggravates day by day. The treatment abroad is hardly affordable for hardly any family. And even though parents do everything for their children, it is simply money that is missing. 

The treatment sometimes costs so much that it would exceed what a whole family would earn throughout their whole lives. As an example, the treatment of some cancer types costs more than 500,000 €. However, depending on the country, the average wage is between € 1 and € 5 per day.

Our Mission

We have made a great effort helping children with disabilities and their families from abroad. We will pay the treatment costs and, if necessary, transport, accommodation and interpreting expenses and support the children and their families during the entire course of the treatment. We provide not only financial, but also psychological support and advice.

We help the children worldwide. We are both politically and denominationally independent.

With the help of our donors, helpers and supporters, we try to help as many children as possible. We are looking forward to all kind of donation and support. Every volunteer is welcome. Together we can achieve a lot and make the world a bit better.
