The foundation, which was established in 2001, is a non-profit organization that raises funds from companies and private individuals to pay for things, environments, experiences and activities that bring joy and a better quality of life for children, young people and their families at the Queen Silvia Children's Hospital in Gothenburg.
"We want to support the important work the Foundation for Queen Silvia Children’s Hospital does to bring joy into the everyday lives of children and young people who are dealing with various illnesses," says Magnus Lundbäck, Executive Vice President Human Resources & Sustainability at Getinge.
Children and young people who are suffering long-term illnesses need environments, experiences and activities that encourage play and laughter; a life that can bring comfort and hope. The organization raises funds to finance initiatives that complement the routine care provided by the hospital. Initiatives that are needed every day, all year round, but that cannot always be financed with public funds.
"We are extremely happy to introduce Getinge as our new principal partner. Thanks to this partnership, we will be able to bring a great deal of joy to children in the hospital, so they can play, dream and laugh and forget their adversity, at least for a little while," says Madeleine Wahlberg, Operations Manager at the Foundation for Queen Silvia Children’s Hospital.
