On the road in sub-zero temperatures – visits to people with no fixed abode – expansion of projects planned
With the beginning of the cold season, teams of Menschenfreude e.V. were again increasingly on the road in Cologne and Bonn to visit people without a fixed abode. In addition to the distribution of food and winter-proof textiles, this time it was also about the idea of resocialization: so it was possible to organize a hostel for some over the Christmas days. There has also been help with visits to the authorities. Young people will soon be involved in similar projects.
“Our friends are holding out at 2°C. In the room.” – Electricity generators for people in Ukraine
From mid-December, volunteers from Menschenfreude e.V. will once again start a relief transport to Ukraine. In view of the impending winter, a total of twelve power generators are on board this time. The contact person is Dr. Matthias Straub, who, together with his wife Elka, has already accompanied previous relief transports of Menschenfreude e.V. and carried them out himself. Initially, the generators are intended for hospitals. Smaller equipment for schools and other institutions will also be brought into the country as part of further shipments. We therefore ask you once again for donations – and thank you at the same time for your previous support!
