Laura is 21 years old and was cared for by the childrens’ hospice Sonnenhof of the Björn Schulz Foundation in Berlin, before she moved into her own home. She is severely handicapped because of a genetic defect. We admire the young woman, who is full of energy and always takes her life in her own hands. After graduating from high school, she has now moved from Baden-Württemberg to Berlin for training. She has left her small hometown and went all alone to the big city.
More self-determination and independence
In order to be able to live alone she looked for a care team. She manages her everyday life like any other young woman who is preparing for the "big wide world". But she has it a lot tougher because of her limitations, but she will not back down.
When setting up the first home, there appeared a big problem - the kitchen. From the private and financial point of view, only a small unsual kitchen would have been possible to buy. But since Laura would like to take care of her duties in the kitchen by herself, she wanted a barrier-free kitchen, which is individually tailored to her needs.
We were able to fulfill her wish with the help of a donation campaign. The kitchen was delivered and set up in mid-November. On a leisurely afternoon in December, Claudia Bartz, our managing director, inaugurated the new kitchen together with Laura while baking cookies. We recorded this in a small movie that you can see on our YouTube channel.
We thank all donors for their generosity, wish Laura a lot of fun while cooking and further success in her project - LIFE!
