Guetersloh. In early May, the new Bethel Children's Hospice in Bielefeld will be formally inaugurated. Over the past few months, a facility has been built that will provide modern accommodations for ten severely ill children and teens, as well as their parents and siblings.
The building also has large common areas and provides adequate space for the necessary care facilities. The construction costs of €5 million are being financed exclusively from donations.
The donors also include Mohn Media. Shortly before the completion of the facility, Managing Director Willfried Velte visited the initiators in Bethel to see how the construction work was coming along. He also brought a package including lot of children's books and an additional check for €15,000. "We are really pleased to be able to contribute to making this impressive project become a reality with this sum, which comes from our annual Christmas campaign," Velte told Pastor Bernward Wolf as he presented the donation.
