Förderverein Kinderhospiz Leuchtturm e.V.
The Förderverein Kinderhospiz Leuchtturm e.V. has been in existence since 2010 and the outpatient children’s and youth hospice service since 2013. The focus of the work is to accompany and support children, adolescents and young adults with life-shortening illnesses and their families. To this end, 32 family companions are actively involved on a voluntary basis in the districts of Vorpommern-Rügen, Vorpommern-Greifswald and the Mecklenburg Lake District. Their work is primarily about making everyday family life as easy as possible and being there for the sick children, but also for their siblings or people from their private environment.
The association has only one permanently employed coordinator and receives only very limited financial resources. The donation will be used, among other things, to fulfil the last wishes of the sick children and to make everyday life easier for the families.
