Sponsors and partners have been recruited to support dinners and lunches for charity with a total investment budget of over € 50,000. The monthly meetings were and will continue to be supported by the SHZ Self-Help Center Association for the demand for Self-Help.
The project “Tepliy Dom bei Anja” will also support Ursula Kalb-parish association Sant Egidio Munich Germany. For Ursula Kalb, being a Christian today means above all standing on the side of the poor. And that is what she and Alexandra Baranowskij live in the community of Sant’ Egidio, which meets in Schwabing, among other places, in the Catholic church of Sankt Sylvester on Biedersteiner Straße.
“Society often forgets old and weak people, but they are part of it,” says Kalb. Thus, the members of Sant’ Egidio are committed to the poor and the elderly, but not only: They support, among other things, the “Dream” project, which was launched by the Community of Sant’ Egidio itself in February 2002 and fights AIDS in Africa, and provide emergency aid, for example in the Philippines or in Syria.
In addition to global projects, the community is also active on a smaller scale, in Munich, for example, with prayers for the refugees from Lampedusa or for the “Isar murder victim”, the man who was stabbed by an unknown person on the Isar at the end of May and fatally injured. Andin Schwabing, too, Sant’ Egidio supports the disadvantaged: once a month, for example, there is a meal for the needy in the parish hall of Sankt Sylvester.
