Charity Campaign: Sarah-Lena wants to swim
with the dolphins
We accept donations for 9-year old Sarah-Lena Hoffmann
so that she could go to a dolphon therapy.
Sarah-Lena was born on July 19th 1999, which was a
premature birth, and had a weight of only 950g and a
size of only 37cm.

She can play with her learn computer for hours and

hope that she can explain herself better to us and the
people surrounding her.

unfortunately a therapy is very expensive and health
insurance does not pay for it.
This is the reason why we try to safe money with the
help from friends, family, relatives and hopefully the
donations of helpful people because 15000 Euro for
therapy, flight and accommodation etc. is a lot of

We already want to thank you for your help and
If there should be some money left after the therapy we
will use it for a second one. In case Sarah-Lena does
not react on the therapy we will use the money to help
a child with similar problems, of course in the name of
