Menschenfreude e.V. in the media

We are always very pleased to receive reports in the media. They are an award for our work and help us to make our charitable projects better known.

We have collected all the articles here in a press review. In addition, we provide some downloads that are welcome to be used and distributed. There will also be information about our book “Verlassenes Land” and our photo exhibition MENSCHEN FREUDE BILDER .

"You know anonymous pictures from the media. But when you make personal contact and learn the stories behind them and the gratitude for the help, it changes your perspective."
