Christmas campaign for young refugee victims from Somalia and Afghanistan

January 2015

At the end of the year, the crispy geese are taken out of the ovens in many places and a good bottle of red wine is served with them. Not only at this time of year, but especially then, one should pause and think of those who are suffering from war, persecution, oppression or hunger at the same time. In order to escape these torments, people are increasingly seeking protection in Germany – including a group of twelve young refugee victims from Somalia and Afghanistan. They are currently being looked after by the ASB Lehrerkooperative gGmbH in Frankfurt, learning German and experiencing active integration. We were impressed by this project and accordingly we, too, organised by our five student employees, wanted to make our contribution. We were happy to fulfil the young people’s wish for a foosball table and not only handed it over personally shortly before Christmas, but also inaugurated it together with them.
