What is it about?

The successful realised project "HILDE UMDASCH HAUS" (HUH) implemented for the first time a completely new concept of care in Austria. The house offers a care unit for ten children, adolescents and young adults with a life-threatening diagnosis and complexity of medical conditions in need for special care. The HUH is a place of safety, tranquillity, dignity but above all, a place of life.
