CHILDREN FOR TOMORROW is a charitable foundation located in Hamburg, founded in 1998 by Stefanie Graf. The purpose of the foundation is the therapeutic treatment of children and adolescents who have been victims of war, fight and organized violence.
The foundation’s headquarters was established in 2011 on the grounds of the University Hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf. The headquarters hosts the ambulance for refugee children and their families, the foundation team of the project “HonigHelden!” which offers therapies in primary schools, the coordination of international projects in Eritrea and Uganda as well as the committee’s office.
Almost half of all the refugees are children or adolescents. They have experienced war in their home Country, lived through the worst experiences of violence while fleeing and also may have suffered the loss of their parents and relatives. As a result, these children and adolescents often develop Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression, sleep disorders and suffer from nightmares.
CHILDREN FOR TOMORROW finances psychotherapeutic treatment and psychosocial support for these children and adolescents. The foundation’s mission is helping young refugees with their mental health, to enable them to integrate in exile and thus to make an important contribution to a more peaceful world.
