As the refugees arrived at the accommodation about two weeks ago, the first distribution of clothes was organized at the storage facilities of the team „Donations“. Many of the refugees turned up. Considering the sudden onset of winter weather this event came just in time!
Our guests could provide themselves with warm sturdy shoes, winter jackets, jumpers, woolly hats, scarves and gloves. As there are plenty of articles in store everybody could find what they were looking for. Nevertheless trousers in small sizes and shoes were most sought after.
The distribution took place in an amicable atmosphere: The men are open-minded, polite and ready to talk. Most of them can easily communicate with volunteers in English. There were numerous friendly conversations going on and many refugees were avid to learn the word „Schnee“, something they met with for the first time in their lives.
There will be a further opportunity to acquire a new set of clothes in the weeks ahead.
