26.02.2016: Germany: Kolping continues helping refugees

The new co-ordinator for the project “Refugees and immigrants”, Samantha Ruppel, has started her job in January 2016.

She is the contact person for Diocesan Kolping Societies and Kolping Families who are involved with refugee work. Samantha Ruppel gathers information, accompanies the content-related work with refugees within the Association, and provides informative material, courses and up-grading education.  The Kolping Society of Germany thereby provides an excellent service for the other associational levels that are involved with the incoming refugees.  Thus a sign is set against racist slogans.

In addition, a special edition of the leadership magazine “Idea and Action” was published in January.  This 36-page booklet is dealing specifically with the topic “Refugee Aid” and therefore provides good information for the local Kolping work.
