Robert Enke Foundation

Robert Enke was a German footballer, playing for Hannover 96, and an eight-time keeper for the German national team. He suffered from depression for several years. On November 10, 2009, Robert Enke took his own life. He left behind his wife Teresa Enke and an eight-month-old daughter. Robert Enke’s death was met with a deep outpouring of emotion and sympathy that cut across numerous social divides. His tragic death brought the disease of depression into the public eye.

In addition to the subject of depression, the Robert Enke Foundation has another focus. Shortly after her second birthday, the Enkes´ daughter Lara, who suffered from a heart condition, died following an ear operation. Even after his daughter’s death, Robert Enke tried to be grateful for the short time he and his wife Teresa had had with Lara. He remembered Lara lovingly: “In every other photo you could see her laughing; she was such a brave, happy child.”

The Robert Enke Foundation supports projects, initiatives and facilities that educate about children’s heart conditions and depression and serve to research or treat these illnesses.

The Mast family has supported the foundation’s educational outreach activities for several years in various projects that address depression as a disease and chip away at the surrounding taboos.

In this way, the foundation enables valuable support for people with depression and their relatives.

“Teresa Enke has shown incredible strength in accepting the hand that life dealt her and deciding to reach out and help others in similar situations. Her determination has always impressed my wife and me and led to the decision to support Teresa’s work in the long term.”
