Onward to Pentecostal Youth Gatherings - Supporting Refugee Participation

by Friends of the Regional East

Dear friends, we want to make it possible for many of our refugee friends to go to Gelsenkirchen from 03 to 05 June 2022 come with us – for this we need money, among other things.

We collect donations and offer home-cooked African food – for example at the Rebell's warming-up festival in Stuttgart. Two of our African friends worked hard and cooked delicious and spicy food, everyone helped with the set-up, sales, and also with cleaning up and washing up afterwards. Proud result: over one hundred euros to support travel, admission and accommodation for refugees.

We are planning another event: Bistro at ABZ Süd on Wednesday, June 1st. For anyone who needs support (benefit recipients or low earners), the following guidelines apply:

1. Every refugee should be able to participate. The circle of friends supports travel, admission and accommodation

2. Everyone who wants to be supported must apply for it individually, stating how much they can contribute themselves.

3. Everyone who receives support undertakes to sign up in the shift plan at the booth at the Whitsun Youth Meeting of the Friends: preparing food, handing out food, washing the dishes.

4. In exceptional cases, refugees from LEAs also receive free food at the stand.  

The prerequisite is, of course, that initiatives are taken in many places to raise money - ideally combined with advertising for participation in the Pentecost youth meeting!
