[Women’s Association for the Poor and the Sick] Siebenter Bericht über die Leistungen des weiblichen Vereins für Armen und Krankenpflege…

Charitable association in Hamburg, Germany after an outbreak of cholera in 1831


This pamphlet on nursing and charity work by German philanthropist and social reformer Amalie Sieveking (1794–1859) reports on the activities of the Weiblichen Vereins für Armen und Krankenpflege—the Women’s Association for the Poor and the Sick.

Sieveking founded this nursing and charitable association in Hamburg, Germany after an outbreak of cholera there in 1831. Because of her efforts to train the poor for employment, to nurse the sick, and to build hospitals, Sieveking is regarded as a pioneer of modern German social work.

This seventh annual report of the Women’s Association for the Poor and the Sick includes the statutes or constitution of the association (“Statuten des Vereins”). Also found here are an overview of its revenue and expenditures (“Uebersicht der Cinnahmen und Ausgaben des Vereins”) and a specification of wages.
