For several years now, the Austrian Office has been making monetary and other donations to Sterntalerhof, a children’s hospice for families with seriously or terminally ill children.
The unchanging mission of Sterntalerhof is:
To impart a feeling of happiness and lightheartedness to children and their families who don’t know how long they will be able to share tomorrow.
Sterntalerhof is a place where these families can take refuge, and where hope can grow. Families are given medical and moral support, especially when they are preparing to say goodbye to a loved one.
The organisation was founded in 1999 in the Burgenland region as an independent charity, and relies on an interdisciplinary approach involving therapy, education, psychological and spiritual support combined with equine therapy. This combination of services is unique in Europe.
