Benita Quadflieg Stiftung – Kinderhaus Mignon
In Hamburg there is an alarmingly large number of children who grow up under hardly imaginable circumstances. Found in squalid conditions or with experience of abuse and/or violence, they are eventually taken from their families by the child welfare services on grounds of serious endangerment to their well-being.
In the Kinderhaus Mignon, run by the foundation Benita Quadflieg Stiftung, such children, from infancy onwards are given a new home in family-like residential groups as well as professional help and treatment. The severely traumatised children live in these groups with qualified educators, often a couple with their own children, where they can finally begin to relax, build up trust and become stabilised.
The proceeds of this year’s Tombola will go towards the expansion of the Kinderhaus Mignon. They are intended for any furnishings that may still be needed in the latest residential group as well as for activities and therapy measures that are appropriate to the emotional situation of the newly admitted children.
