The Regine Sixt Children’s Aid Foundation donates a Citroën DS 4 to the domestic pediatric and oncologicaly care HOPPS.

A car for a good cause: the Regine Sixt Children's Aid Foundation handed over a Citroën DS 4 to HOPPS, a project providing mobile home care for children suffering from cancer and leukemia. There lief organization will use the vehicle to extend outpatient care for seriously ill children. Doctors and supporters can thereby visit even more children within their familiar surroundings.

Delivery took place in the presence of numerous representatives of Stuttgart Clinic, Citroën Germany, the Regine Sixt Children's Aid Foundation and the committed employees of the Sixt company.


The vehicle was originally donated to the Regine Sixt Children's Aid Foundation by Citroen Germany. At Christmas and Easter, Sixt employees have already visited children at Stuttgart Clinic on numerous occasions. Handover of the keys by Markus Herbst, Head of the Regine Sixt Children's Aid Foundation and Patricia Massó to the Director of Stuttgart Clinic, Prof. Dr. Claude Krier, Senior Physician of HOPPS, Dr. Claudia Blattmann and the Director of Pediatric Oncology at the Olgahospital, Prof. Dr. Stefan Bielak (left to right).
During this time the HOPPS helpers mentioned their need of a further vehicle. The employees forwarded this wish to the Regine Sixt Children's Aid Foundation which was able to act quickly.

Regine Sixt, Chairman and Founder of the Children's Aid Foundation:

It is so important that children who are seriously ill can be taken care of at home in their familiar surroundingx. I am very glad that our donation helps the outpatient work of HOPPS and hence the comprehensive care of many sick children. I therefore want especially to thank Citroën for making this project possible by their generous donation.


Prof. Dr. Stefan Bielack, Medical Director of Pediatrics 5:

We would like to express our sincere thanks to the Regine Sixt Children's Aid Foundation. This new vehicle will help us to support seriously ill children even after they have been discharged from hospital.
