Your donation is precious!

The effect of art, music and dance therapies for sick children is proven.  However, they are not yet covered by the health insurance act KVG and hospitals are not able to bear the full costs of the therapies.
Thanks to your donations, the ART-THERAPIE Foundation can support these important therapy programs and ensure the work of the therapists in 12 Swiss hospitals.
Your donation to the approved charitable ART-THERAPIE foundation is tax-deductible. In order to keep administrative costs as low as possible, thanks will only be expressed in writing for donations of 50 francs and more.
