La Maison de Terre des hommes

La Maison de Terre des hommes 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.

Our Mission

AID CHILDREN IN DISTRESS

La Maison de Terre des hommes is a living space.
Enfant

The broad support and ongoing efforts enable 40 to 50 children to continuously stay in La Maison.

PROVIDING CARE FOR SICK CHILDREN

La Maison de Terre des hommes is a medicalised home.
Enfant

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

Our challenge never ends, whether it is taking care of seriously ill children or finding money to provide for them.
Enfant

Without you, nothing is possible.

Nothing can be done without your financial support!

La Maison de Terre des hommes is not subsidised and needs 3.3 million Swiss Francs every year to save more than 200 children. Without public donations, it is impossible to pursue the mission.
