Covid-19 keeps us on our toes
The current Corona pandemic has changed our lives dramatically, in Europe as well as in the countries of the Southern Hemisphere. Schools have had to close down and education, professional training and child care have become difficult or even impossible.
At present we from SONNE-International are mainly concerned with preventing health problems and reducing infection risks, alleviating food shortage, supporting people who have lost their meagre incomes etc. etc. etc. Temporarily, crisis response is uppermost on our agenda.
Like everybody else we are looking forward to getting back to normal with impatience! We do not usually believe in short-term help, but in sustainable, long-term improvements. Our main tools are education, professional training and health care so that our beneficiaries have the chance to break the vicious cycle of ignorance, poverty and disease and to lead self-determined lives with dignity!
As a high percentage of people in western countries are afraid of losing their jobs and many firms are struggling, raising funds for our projects has become much more difficult. Therefore, we ask you to support our work financially, if you can. In times of crisis, we have to stick together and help those who are less fortunate than we are.
