For many young victims of war and crisis situations, medical treatment in Europe is often their last chance for survival. PEACE VILLAGE INTERNATIONAL provides medical treatment to sick and wounded children who can no longer be cared for in their native countries.
On international airlines, the children come to Germany – accompanied by staff and volunteers – to be treated in European clinics and hospitals. After that, the children are brought to the premises of PEACE VILLAGE INTERNATIONAL, located in Oberhausen, Germany for a rehabilitation program including time for sports, play and recreation. Upon successful medical treatment and rehabilitation, the children return to their native countries and families.
There are criteria to be met, before a child is brought to Europe and separated from his family:
At any given time, there are approximately 300 children from up to 10 different nations in Germany under the care of PEACE VILLAGE INTERNATIONAL. Approximately half of them are cared for in hospitals while the other half is living in our PEACE VILLAGE children’s home. During the course of a year, we help about 1000 children.
