Charity Partner 2018 – Children’s Cancer Charity/Deutsche Kinderkrebsstiftung 

The German children’s cancer charity is committed to supporting children, who have been diagnosed with cancer, as well as their families and helps them to improve their quality of life. Their everyday work comprises counseling, accompanying families through their journey to recovery and the support through social funds should families run into financial difficulties.

The German children’s cancer charity supports and finances patient-oriented research projects in order to increase the young patients’ chances of a full recovery, ensure safe treatments and find new therapies so that long term implications can be reduced to a minimum or completely eliminated.

They also established the ‘Waldpiraten-Camp’ which is located close to Heidelberg and is unique in Germany. It’s a rehabilitation, recreation and leisure camp which helps children to regain their strength and build-up their courage after winning the battle with cancer so they can return to their everyday and happy life.
