Our Commitment to Refugees

Via “Aktion Deutschland Hilft,” we donated 250,000 euros to support the refugee work of the Malteser Werke.

“Deutschunterricht von Anfang an” (German Language Lessons from the Very Beginning), a unique pilot project, is directed to around 100,000 refugees in ten reception facilities operated by the Malteser Werke in Germany. With our donation, we finance the hiring of qualified German teachers at six facilities in North Rhine-Westphalia. Furthermore, the money is being used to equip classrooms, to print teaching materials, and for an academic evaluation of the entire project.
