Projects in the area of health are of particular importance to us, especially related to children’s health.

 

German Childhood Cancer Foundation

The German Childhood Cancer Foundation is the central contact point for families with children with cancer. Here, families are provided information and a professional advice. For example, through social funds, the foundation supports families in financial difficulties. The main goal of the foundation is to make sick children healthy again. In addition, it aims to restore their quality of life and give them the chance of a happy future. The German Childhood Cancer Foundation supports research projects that increase the chances of recovery, make treatments safer, and find new therapeutic approaches.

Heidelberg Children's Hospital

The Heidelberg Children's Hospital is located in the heart of Heidelberg University Hospital. Thanks to the renovation this year, it now has space for more than 200 children and young people. In addition, by the end of 2018, all child and adolescent medicine will be united under one roof, meaning shorter routes and better treatment options.

During their stay in the hospital, children and young people are cared for using the best medical means available. Alongside patient and treatment rooms, it provides a play and study area for patients as well as rooms for parents. This ensures that children, young people and their families are as comfortable as possible. Last but not least, the proximity to the university guarantees the latest findings in research and treatment.

German AIDS Service Organization

The German AIDS Service Organization (DAH) consists of about 130 organizations that deal exclusively with the issues of people living with HIV/AIDS. It represents the interests of those affected in the areas of society, politics and research.

The DAH aims to educate as many people as possible about HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections, and thus to act preventively. The organization works closely with the Federal Center for Health Education and specifically addresses the groups of people who are particularly at risk in the hope of making HIV/AIDS increasingly rare in the future.

In addition, the DAH supports self-help groups through education and training, information material, and numerous websites about AIDS.

Auma Obama Foundation Sauti Kuu – Alego Nyangoma, Siaya County, Kenya

The Auma Obama Foundation Sauti Kuu (Sauti Kuu) is a non-profit organization that was established in Kenya in 2010 and registered in Germany in 2011. The foundation is led and inspired by Dr. Auma Obama, who has extensive experience working with NGOs and young people in Africa and throughout the world. Sauti Kuu (“powerful voices” in Kiswahili) works with disadvantaged young people, particularly those in rural areas, to help them and their families utilize locally available resources to improve their living conditions. Sauti Kuu is working to reverse one of the most economically destructive migrations in our time: rural-urban migration.

Sport, Resource and Vocational Training Centre

Combined Netball and Volleyball Court

As part of its infrastructure development program, Sauti Kuu is building a Sport, Resource and Vocational Training Center in Alego Nyangoma, Siaya County, in Western Kenya. The aim is to create a safe and secure physical space for young people from rural areas to meet and interact regularly, while participating in sports and learning activities. The center will offer basketball, boxing, football, volleyball and netball.

SNP is delighted to support the Sauti Kuu Foundation in setting up the sports center, as providing the children with new sports facilities is important to us.
