The Regine Sixt Children's Aid Foundation supported the Sterntaler Hof with the construction of a new children's playground.

"The Sterntaler Hof is a children's hospice that takes care of seriously, chronically, and terminally ill children and helps their families, especially when the families have to say goodbye at the end of a long journey.

When a child has a life-threatening or life-limiting illness, this has a huge effect on them, their families, and those who care for them. It also means a long-standing massive burden on the family.The mission of the Sterntaler Hof is to help keep things as cheerful as possible, providing as much a sense of security and joy for the children and their families as possible, especially for those families who do not know how many more tomorrows they will have together! Sterntaler Hof takes an interdisciplinary approach from therapy and education, psychology, and counselling to do this, combined with therapeutic riding.



Since interaction with the children plays a very important role in hospice care, a new playground for parents and children to spend some together having fun was of great importance especially for its play and adventure-based aspect. The Regine Sixt Children's Aid Foundation Drying Little Tears funded a playground for this equipped with new play equipment, slides, a bird's nest swing, and fort with a rope gym. Thanks to this support a new space for the children and their parents to interact was created."
