When I return home, I get exciting news. Mrs. Knost, my first primary school teacher in Germany, donates the money she received for her birthday to FLY & HELP: € 200.- which can be used for building another school.
Only a few months ago, I met Mrs. Knost after more than twenty years. We have noticed that we are both Africa fans and are interested in helping the wonderful people of this unique continent!
Thank you, dear Mrs. Knost!
Shortly after that, I also have birthday… Since last year, my friends have known that I want to donate my birthday money and once again dip into their purses: I get a total of € 320.- which are donated to Mohau e.V.
=> Mohau e.V. is the association that helped me with the preparation of my first project in Fobeni Village a year ago (reports from Fobeni Village – South Africa). This year, Mohau e.V. organised a great winter campaign that completely convinced me and which I would very much like to support. More information can be found under the following link: Help for self-help in Fobeni Village (Only in German)
In the chapter “Homecoming – 2016”, I have already mentioned that during my preparations, I did not go around this time to accept cash as a donation to Kaokoland e.V. €100.- of the total amount of €170.- were already contributed by Mrs. Knost (Thanks again!). The money was also used by Kaokoland e.V. to set up a Christmas party for the poorest children in the area.
