A Cordial Foundation

The promotional foundation Orphanhealthcare is the first charitable Swiss foundation for rare diseases. It was founded in 2010 by Dr. Frank Grossmann with the target of improving the quality of life of people affected by rare diseases. We enable research and development and promote exchange of experience on the subject of rare diseases. Together with our partners, we combine knowledge and act to promote information, education and inclusion for those affected and their families. 22 millions of affected children in Europe need us. We are counting on your support to reach them.
