KINDNESS FOR KIDS Health Care Award (April 30, 2016)

Funding institution



Kindness for Kids was founded is a Munich based independent foundation, whose goal is helping children with rare diseases and their families, at a scientific and social level.

Most rare pediatric diseases are chronic and entail severe impairment to a person's health. Strong medication of different kinds, frequent visits to varying physicians as well as days or weeks in hospital have become a part of most patients and their families. The few specialists are often far away. Thus appropriate therapies and cures are left wanting. By tertiary prevention, including medical and paramedical therapies, the award aims to minimize side effects and relapses and hence improve the quality of life for children with rare diseases.

The Kindness for Kids Health Care Award is funding projects which aim to help improve the care situation for children with rare diseases sustainably, either through structural changes or new nursing, physiotherapeutic and psychosocial approaches. A scientific study ought to evaluate the concept and be published after project closure.
