The head coach of the Luxembourg Puckers ice hockey team Ives Barthel and a friend launched a foundation to support families who have been affected by the loss of one or more parents.
The Fondation Sarah Grond was set up to help families who struggle after the loss of one or more parents. The ice hockey team encourages "anyone to pledge anything you can to this amazing cause in the memory of our dearly departed friend Sarah."
In the above interview, coach Ives Barthels explains that he started to create the foundation after his life partner Sarah Grond passed away, leaving behind two young children. The foundation aims to help children or families financially and also fights to keep the memory of the loved ones alive. The foundation, he explains, not only targets individual families but also foster homes and other individuals affected by loss.
