With the generosity of BBR Network Members and suppliers, this year BBR VT International has been able to make a substantial donation to the Association for Children with Rare Diseases. Some 350,000 children and adolescents in Switzerland are affected by a rare disease. The everyday life of these families is characterized by uncertainty, especially if there is no diagnosis yet. The Association supports the affected children and their families. It provides direct financial help, creates free family events to connect affected families and works to raise the profile of the subject of rare diseases publicly. We thank everyone for their generosity which has enabled us to support this locally-based registered charity to continue its vital work.
