“Wash on

Monday”


Nursery rhymes in Germany and other European countries often reflect the fact that water is an abundant resource in our region.

In Syria, where thousands of refugees live in makeshift camps and water is a scarce natural resource, daily chores like washing clothes or cloth diapers for babies can however become an insurmountable challenge. Therefore we decided to finance a truckload of disposable diapers and its transport to a refugee camp, and we supported another aid transport through “Wings of Help”.
