La Maison hosts sick children, mostly from West Africa, who come to Switzerland for treatment. They live here and receive care before and after their hospital stay, until they go back home.
Together we save lives.
Discover La Maison, this unique structure for sick children transferred to Switzerland to receive medical care.
The Lausanne-based foundation Terre des hommes – Aide à l’enfance is terminating its partnership agreement with the Terre des hommes Valais Foundation which runs La Maison.
HELPING CHILDREN IN DISTRESS FOR 50 YEARS
La Maison de Terre des hommes is a living space.
The broad support and ongoing efforts enable 40 to 50 children to continuously stay in La Maison. Since 1969, over 9'000 children saved.
PROVIDING CARE FOR SICK CHILDREN FOR 50 YEARS
La Maison de Terre des hommes is a medicalised home.
Children are transferred to Switzerland to undergo surgery in university hospitals, because their illness cannot be treated efficiently in their home countries. In La Maison, we offer a medical and homelike setting before and after their surgery.
FIGHTING FOR CHILDREN'S RIGHTS FOR 50 YEARS
Our challenge never ends, whether it is taking care of seriously ill children or finding money to provide for them.
Without you, nothing is possible.
