Stroke research. In cooperation with the German Stroke Foundation, the Regine Sixt Children's Aid Foundation supports the establishment of a specialized stroke unit at the Dr. V. Hauner Children's Hospital. Every year, between 300 and 500 children and young people in Germany suffer a stroke - a third of them during pregnancy or birth. For parents, this diagnosis comes as a shock, as the subject of stroke in children is still little known. The families concerned are desperate, the doctors often perplexed. Building trust. The Regine Sixt Children's Aid Foundation financed the purchase of new communication aids for Israeli children with speech impairments. A group of Israeli children and teenagers between the ages of 7 and 18 care for young people of the same age but with health problems, and spend their free time together. The initiative, called "Krembo Wings", began in 2002 and today supports approximately 5,000 teenagers throughout Israel. Regine Sixt: "Being able to understand each other is essential, it creates new worlds and deepens trust in each other."
