KRAKIAN – Sick Children Online

Our KraKiaN project ensures that children and adolescents on our hospital wards are given a laptop so that they can stay connected with the outside world. They can use their laptop to keep in touch with their family, friends and school. They can also easily send e-mails or participate in chats or play games.

The laptop also livens up the classes that the children attend in the hospital school as they can surf the Web and also use educational programmes. In this way they can keep up with their class during the hospital stay. The KraKiaN project thus offers them good prospects for the future.

Children and adolescents with severe diseases (chronic illnesses, cancer, cystic fibrosis or disabilities) benefit greatly from this project. We have installed wireless LAN access points on each of our wards and also in our day hospital. There are currently 35 laptops at the disposal of our young patients. Learning and technical support is available from our team of six hospital staffers.

Donations are our only source of financial support for the hardware and software required for the project as well as for the staff we need. Our overheads are currently at 45,000 Euros per year.

Detailed information can be found at the KRAKIAN-Homepage.
