Money for young people in developing countries

10/12/2013: Germany

In 2013 the Maristenkolleg in Mindelheim, Bavaria, collected a considerable amount of money through several fund-raising drives which had been organised by classes and various groups.

Some time ago three Marist Brothers in Cambodia asked for support for the new community in Sen Monorom in Eastern Cambodia. With the local diocese they are committed to developing youth work in Sen Monorom. Two of them, Brother Bernhard Tremmel and Brother Maximilian Meier, are from Germany and attended school and later worked in Mindelheim. They have compiled a list of what the new community needs. The project of the Maristenkolleg this year is to help the brothers in Cambodia, along with others, and in this way to show its solidarity.

In 2013 the Maristenkolleg raised 8,889 Euro. Of this amount 4,000 Euro went to Cambodia, 3.000 Euro were donated for the people in Aleppo, Syria, and smaller amounts were sent to Kenya. In addition, money from the school, supplemented with donations from friends of the Marists in the Mindelheim area - 2,500 Euro in total - was sent to Harare, Zimbabwe, where Marists have been running Marcellin Champagnat Children's Village for several years now, providing for the orphans who live there. Brothers there assure us that the money is used for the benefit of the children.
