The children's hospice service accompanies families in the Rems-Murr district in Germany, in which children and young people live with terminally ill children and young people, from the time of diagnosis until after dying and death. The employees also support children, young people and their relatives in the event of a life-shortening illness in a parent.
Around fifty families are currently being accompanied. There are also bereavement groups for children, young people and adults.
Seven permanent employees and fifty volunteers are involved in the hospice service Sternentraum, which is largely financed by donations.
Metallux would like to support this valuable work. That is why our CEO Andreas Oberascher handed over a donation of 2,500 euros to the foundation's board member, Jürgen Müller.
