A Cordial Foundation

The 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 quality of life of people affected by rare diseases. We enable holistic integrated care, research and development and promote exchange of experience on the subject of rare diseases. Together with our partners, we act to promote quality of life for affected children and their families. 22 millions of affected children in Europe are not rare. We are counting on your support to reach them.
