Death is part of life – easily said, but difficult to accept – especially for children and adolescents.
The children’s and youth hospice service in Cologne accompanies young people who are confronted with life-shortening diseases. Children, their siblings and parents receive support on their journey through life from the moment of diagnosis. The life, dying and the time after the death of the children are the main focus of the work. Volunteers provide the affected families with long-term support, often for years.
The GUS Group has been supporting this work for years and is happy to donate EUR 3,800 this year as well. The GUS employees have contributed EUR 800 to the donation.
