The Fondation Sarah Grond’s mission is to help families and children in need, either directly or indirectly, by providing financial or other help in Luxembourg or abroad. The main purpose is to help children that have lost one or both parents, but the foundation is also willing to help children that still have both parents.
The foundation is willing to support children and families directly by giving them or helping them buy material, clothes, equipment and/or food or indirectly by giving money to foster homes, orphanages, support groups and other types of organizations.
As the mental and emotional support in case of a loss of a parent is just as important as the physical and financial help, the foundation is also willing to support organizations that provide that kind of support or to pay for sessions with professionals that provide these services.
The foundation is also willing to finance activities and/or equipment for foster homes and orphanages or similar homes to underprivileged children.
To finance these activities, the Fondation Sarah Grond relies on donations from individuals, but is also organizing fund-raising events a number of times a year which will create awareness and increase the number of donations.
The Fondation Sarah Grond also accepts donations in kind. Donate your children's used clothes, toys, furniture, bikes, car seats and strollers. Just contact us and we will arrange a pick up in due time.
The foundation was created to continue Sarah's legacy as a devoted mother, an exceptionally kind and good-natured human being and an amazing friend and partner.
Sarah was born in December 1986. At the age of 20, she became an Au pair to help out the parents of two young boys (age 2 and 4) in Munich. She then returned to Luxembourg to become a flight attendant.
In January 2015 her son Lionel was born with Milan following in June 2017. Sarah was a devoted and caring mother to her children and was relentless in trying to find new activities for her two boys, in buying new and interesting toys, in feeding them a natural and balanced diet. She spent most of the 4 years at home with them, only having started to go back to work in December 2018.
Sarah was loved by many and nobody could ever say a bad word about her. She was caring and understanding, had a heart of gold and would be listening to other people’s grief for hours. She loved children more than anything in the world – not only her own – and had plans to have more children in the future.
In February 2019, Sarah fell sick of the Influenza virus and within just 4 days passed away at the young age of 32, leaving behind her partner and the two boys.

OUR ACHIEVEMENTS TO DATE
The Foundation has done a number of projects in collaboration with Fondation Solina and Solidarité Jeunes. To protect the privacy and anonymity of the children, we cannot post a full description of our projects.
The collaboration with Solina has so far led to five ad hoc projects where we support orphaned children living in one of the foster homes within the Solina organization by sponsoring either tools they need for their education or an activity that is necessary for their mental well-being.
We have also started four long term projects with current or former Solina foster home resident orphans as well as one additional orphan to provide them with the financial support they need to get a proper education. Since the aid they can get from public sources is limited, we have offered to figure as "replacement parents" to sponsor any extraordinary expenses so that these young people don't have to live with the constant anxiety of having to find money in case something goes wrong and can thus focus on their studies and preparing for a life full of potential.
We are also discussing further collaborations with other, similar organizations.
In addition, we are currently directly supporting a young father of 4 children (all under the age of 8) who has recently lost his wife and a family of war children that are fully orphaned.
If you have suggestions or ideas, please contact us!
