Kindness for Kids

The aim is to improve the care for children with rare diseases and their families through active support

Kindness for Kids engages in Rare Diseases and made it its aim, besides supporting basic research and the further training of doctors, to improve the affected children and their families with the help of active support. In Germany, there are more than 7,000 known rare diseases and about four million people suffering for years until their right diagnosis.  The majority of the affected people are children who often do not reach adulthood. As the number of patients is so small, there are often no sufficient therapies, no research, no drugs and no support. Kindness for Kids speaks up for these children.

Commitment for the "orphans" of medicine

Rare diseases are often called the orphans of medicine. According to the World Health Organization, disease is rare if less than 5 among 10,000 people are suffering from it. In Germany, there are more than 7,000 known rare diseases.
