A relief action was organized by Marco, a friend from beach volley. He bought and distributed food as well as hygiene products at the LaGeSo (refugee registration in Berlin, Germany). You can contact him over facebook if you’d like to help.

A friend of mine was in the area to help people directly buying building materials to get a roof over the people’s head before the start of the raining season. Thank you Bastian!
