This is achieved with the help of trained therapists through: experiential education methods such as climbing, canoeing, creative and handicraft activities such as painting and pottery, conversations with affected people of the same age, therapeutically guided individual and group discussions, music, theatre and role-playing games, relaxation exercises and fun and joy with fated people of the same age.

Easier access to the common bathing lake of the sun island

The small lake with the inlet through the Fischach on the grounds of the Sonneninsel (only in German) could not be used until now. With the help of the donation and through renaturationand expansion of the shore, the entrance could be made easier for the children with cancer and former cancer patients. In addition, the reconstruction of the inlet prevented overflowing in the future. Employees of SIXT Switzerland collected the first donations for a barrier-free access to the bathing lake for the Sun Island at a raffle and presented the project of the Regine Sixt Children’s Aid Foundation DryingTears.

“Many, many, many thanks for the great commitment of the Regine Sixt Children’s Aid Foundation and all those involved. Without this, our dream of the Sun Island would not have become reality. It is an important building block that upgrades our outdoor offers and makes them accessible to all our guests in the sense of inclusion,” says Thomas Janik, Managing Director of Sonneninsel, enthusiastically.


In addition to concrete aid projects at home and abroad, the Regine Sixt Kinderhilfe TränchenTrocknen also drives forward a number of its own initiatives. These are realized by countless volunteers and globally operating partners.


You can directly support Tränchen Trocknen with your donation.
