Welcome to the Grünenthal Foundation

The Grünenthal Foundation runs support projects for people affected by a thalidomide-containing product from Grünenthal or its licensees in order to improve their individual life situations in a permanent and un-bureaucratic manner.

The Grünenthal Foundation in dialogue

Only thanks to continuous dialogue with those affected we are able to understand the individual needs of thalidomide-affected people and learn where and in what form support is actually needed.

Individual support in cases of hardship

In addition to other extensive projects, the Grünenthal Foundation also supports individual people by providing non-cash benefits/covering the costs of non-cash benefits. The focus here is on mobility aids and modifications to the home.

Local projects

Thalidomide-affected individuals have many diverse needs. We are always ready to help where our support is requested and needed. Here is a small overview of the projects that we have completed.
