Disabled children for whom development and education is still possible find competent support in the day care center House of Light and are supported according to their talents. In cooperation with the foundation “Pentru Familia Creştină” in Schäßburg, more than 30 children and young people are regularly cared for in the day care center.

House of Light
The care centre for mentally and physically handicapped children is committed to supporting these children and to help affected families. This includes speech therapy, ergotherapy, psychotherapy and physiotherapy.
