- Projects: RUF24, therapy costs and child-oriented funerals
- Responsible body: Munich Ambulant Children’s Hospice Foundation
- Supported since 2021
Since 2004, the Munich Ambulant Children’s Hospice Foundation (AKM) has been caring for families with critically and terminally ill unborn babies, new-borns, children, adolescents, and adults critically and terminally ill unborn babies, new-borns, children, adolescents, and adults as well as critically ill parents living with their children. The full-time and voluntary staff look after and accompany patients from diagnosis, through treatments, and beyond. They relieve families in these extremely trying psychological and physical situations and support them via a professional team of doctors, psychologists, social pedagogues, midwives, and nurses. Moving Child especially supports three projects of the foundation: 1) RUF24 (crisis intervention service), 2) therapy costs, and 3) children funerals. In addition, the AKM Foundation offers other helpful and supportive projects, such as outpatient hospice work, aftercare projects (e.g. meetings with those affected, creative offers and mourning groups) and advice for relatives. But also “heart’s wishes” (a project that fulfils special wishes), sibling days, and holidays for the whole family are supported by the AKM Foundation. All of these offers allow critically ill children, adolescents, young adults and their families moments of emotional security, comfort, and a short return to normalcy.
