Initiative for Children with Cancer in Munich


  • Project: Psychologist position at the children’s cancer ward
  • Responsible body: Initiative for Children with Cancer Munich
  • Supported since 2021

The aim of the Initiative for Children with Cancer Munich is to ease the burden of families with children with cancer by offering a wide range of help – during stages of acute illness but also in the following years. The broad spectrum of assistance offered ranges from immediate financial aid to the personnel and material equipment of the children’s cancer ward, parents’ apartments close to the clinic and extensive psychosocial aftercare. All offers ensure the quality of care for patients and increase the quality of life for families in these difficult times.

The corona pandemic has made the situation for the young patients and their families much more difficult: every week only one parent is allowed to visit the child in the clinic, some therapeutic offers are no longer possible, etc. The extreme isolation and loneliness reinforce the ever-present high levels of psychological stress.

Moving Child supports the initiative by (partially) financing a psychologist position at the children’s cancer ward of the Munich Clinic in Schwabing.
