Your commitment - Uganda 2017
The project work with TOOLS FOR LIFE has given me the opportunity to help others to help themselves and to noticeably improve their quality of life. Thank you for this unforgettable experience!
TOOLS FOR LIFE has carried out an aid convoy to Poland to bring relief supplies to the refugee camps and to take refugees from Ukraine to Germany.
Due to the war in Ukraine, millions of people, mainly women and children, are fleeing to the surrounding countries and are accommodated in emergency shelters - mostly under very poor conditions.
TOOLS FOR LIFE set off for Poland on 30 March with a total of 6 men and 3 small buses. The first destination was Kreisau. There is the Foundation for European Understanding, a former HERO Award winner. There are about 100 refugees there, whom we were able to support with our relief supplies.
The second stop was directly at the Ukrainian border. In Dorohusk there is a reception point, a first reception camp for the refugees. There, the relief supplies were urgently needed and gratefully accepted.
The third and last stop was Lublin. There we stopped at two refugee shelters where the remaining relief supplies could be delivered. As the buses were now empty, 17 refugees aged 3 to 73 could be taken along.
In the meantime, they have found accommodation in flats and host families in Kelkheim and the surrounding area.
My TOOLS FOR LIFE staff trip to Senegal in 2012 was a unique experience. And the fact that I was standing on a meadow where today, after only two years, there is a school for several hundred pupils, which the Foundation helped to finance, is almost unbelievable. Great cause and great projects that make a little bit of a difference in the world.
It is inspiring with how much commitment and passion the foundation devotes to its projects.
