For the third winter now, we have been able to distribute fresh fruit to nearly 100 families each week. The vast majority of family members are children.
The past two winters had already seen a massive drop in colds among children. The vitamin intake from the fresh fruit was clearly good for everyone. And of course, the parents also got their share.
For the past three and a half years, we have also been working to ensure that these children can attend schools again. As they live in some homemade “wild” camps, most of them have to be taken to schools by cabs. The Yezidi cab drivers also have a small additional income through this project.
The students are grateful to be able to attend the schools.
