Sonneninsel, Austria's first centre providing psychosocial support for children and young people with cancer and their families, is opening its doors in the near future. HEFEL Textil, the bedding producer, is supplying top quality comforters, pillows and mattress toppers for all 60 beds there - free of charge.
They will be delivered to the centre in Seekirchen in good time for the beds to be ready. The Sonneninsel project enjoys the committed support of the Salzburger Kinderkrebshilfe children's cancer charity in cooperation with Österreichische Kinderkrebshilfe and the Lions Clubs in Austria.
Heide Janik, who is in charge of the Sonneninsel construction project and the chairwoman of Salzburger Kinderkrebshilfe, expressed her gratitude: "A big thank you to HEFEL for this generous donation! It guarantees vitally important restful sleep for the children and their families at Sonneninsel. This donation means the beds have been made in time for the opening of the therapy centre!"
