Renovation/Construction projects on a children's home in Markkleeberg in cooperation with arche noVa - Initiative für Menschen in Not.

The floodwaters have receded, but their impact has lingered for a long time. Thousands of people have registered damage to their homes and property because of the flood and countless public institutions for children are currently unusable and have to be renovated. These include day care centers, primary schools, and hangout spots.

With her "Drying Little Tears" initiative, "Aktion Deutschland Hilft" board member Regine Sixt is supporting allies who are still under intense pressure to actively help people in the flood zone.

In cooperation with arche noVa e.V., the Regine Sixt Children's Aid Foundation is financing the remediation of a children's home in Markkleeberg. This remedial and social educational institution provides a new home for 16 children and adolescents from various family backgrounds. The home's multifaceted therapeutic options, such as living with pets, offer the children intensive support as they develop independent lives. The building was severely damaged by heavy rains and the resulting elevation of the groundwater. Now it has to be renovated with extensive structural changes. The outdoor facilities, including sports fields, likewise need to be rebuilt. The steps financed by the Regine Sixt Children's Aid Foundation will, among other things, prevent flooding from doing that kind of damage again.
