The Björn Steiger Foundation is a German charity which assists in providing funding for emergency services, and rescue organisations. It is named after a 9 year old child, Björn Steiger, who was killed in 1969 after being hit by a car whilst returning home from his local swimming pool.[1] Shortly after this incident, his parents, Siegfried and Ute Steiger, set up the foundation in his memory.
