Most of us will need to rely on a doctor, nurse, consultant or therapist at some point in our lives. As a non-profit foundation we rely on donations to continue our work in the world. Partnering with the fundraising organization Stiftung Schweiz gives our sponsors and funders the benefit of tax-deductible donations so we can continue to fund course development and free resources for overwhelmed healthcare professionals. Every donation helps, and we're grateful for whatever support you can give.
The Ukraine Project
The children who fled from Ukraine to Switzerland are suffering from severe trauma and are marked by the war and the sudden uprooting.
There is an urgent need to create meeting places for Ukrainian children and their caregivers. Places where they can exchange ideas and have access to basic medical care, educational and therapeutic support, and help learning how to cope with trauma. We at Heart Based Medicine alongside a network of other foundations, aid agencies and other organizations are building a low-threshold service in Basel, Switzerland to help children and their mothers or caregivers process the trauma they experienced during the war in Ukraine.
