Donation to the Christian Help Association Wismar
Bringing joy to other people can be the most beautiful and satisfying one can have.
You will remember that last Christmas, instead of buying presents for our colleagues, partners and recruiters we decided to donate a more or less equivalent amount of money for our Albanian Charity Project.
Since about two years, NOVASOL has been supporting the Christian Help Association “Christlicher Hilfsverein Wismar e.V.” (CHW) to help Albanian children. Our financial help gave them the opportunity to raise up and run a boarding school for about 25 children who live far away in the mountains without any possibility to go to school.
Christmas time is always time for giving. During three Christmas concerts all over Germany, the common projects of CHW and NOVASOL were presented and a lot of money was collected from the audience. There was a small exhibition of pictures that the Albanian children had painted and the aim was to find a winner for the best picture.
Stefanie Wiener from our Hamburg office went to Wismar to deliver the corresponding cheque.
Leonard Berberi, executive director of CHW´s partner organization in Albania, thanked all participants on behalf of the children and their parents. He reported about the activities of the association in Albania: 2.251 Christmas presents had been packed and forwarded, 600 family packages had been prepared and given to the poorest containing clothes and necessary things for daily life. Collected tables and chairs had been brought to the boarding school in Bishnica.
Frieder Weinhold, founder of the association, presented some more facts and Stefanie Wiener who had the pleasure to hand over a present for the winner of our picture competition, Arbana Qyrku, and our donation in the name of NOVASOL .
Frieder Weinhold promised videos that we can watch later on in our Video Magazine to document further progress down there in Albania.
