Aktive Direkt Hilfe e. V. celebrates its 20th anniversary this year

The association Aktive Direkt Hilfe e. V. celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. For this occasion we have created a special article with many photos, which can be read under the heading "Vitamins for the Heart" on this website - a review of our work from the year 2000 until today! It was an exciting and challenging "journey" that took us from Guinea to D.R. Congo through various countries in Africa. Usually we arrived at a new location at the airport with very limited financial means and first researched the greatest need and then did our best, as the name of our association suggests, to actively help directly on the spot. Let us all continue to do our part to change a part of the world - with love being our motivation and the most important ingredient in all this.

Madlen continues to work at the Kimbondo orphanage

Madlen continues her sacrificial work with about one hundred babies and small children at the Kimbondo orphanage on the outskirts of Kinshasa. She not only takes care of their daily physical needs, but also strives to provide them with better scholastics. She has been living in the orphanage since 2011 without being paid, which is why we gladly support her selfless work so that she can better care for the children. Just recently she cared for a malnourished baby – Sissi –, which was abandoned outside the main gate of the orphanage, until it was in good health.

10th interview with Christopher Griebel from the Munich TV

In July and August, we visited again our sponsors and supporters in Germany and had our yearly meeting of ADH members. In Munich, we were able to record our 10th interview with Christopher Griebel from the Munich TV, which you can find here on this website (in German). We are very grateful to Mr. Griebel for providing us a framework for so many years now, to present our work in Congo and encourage people to get involved in ADH’s projects.

Speech in Brumlovka Business Center in Prague

In June Wolfgang held a speech in Prague for interested parties from the Brumlovka Business Center. He was asked to give a speech in the style of his TEDx Talk "Change the World with Love". The Czech organization "Maranatha z.s." has supported the filming and editing of this speech. The video recording of this English-language talk at the Brumlovka Business Center in Prague can be found on this website, as well as in written form.

Visit of the orphanages Kimbondo (Madlen) and COLK in Kinshasa

On top of the regular meetings with ADH Congo and BBK members, Wolfgang had a chance to meet again with Madlen, who continues to faithfully care for the orphans in the Kimbondo orphanage. With the help of one of her influential friends, she hopes to be able to soon start building a school for the small children in her care. Healthwise she is doing relatively well considering her constant fight against cancer. ADH supports Madlen as we see what an important and excellent work she is doing with the orphans. The COLK orphanage was very thankful for our yearly support. Mama Monique and Mama Jeanette do their best for the 90 orphans in this extremely poor section of town.

Assessment of the project progress in Mabala

In March/April, Wolfgang was in Congo and visited our “Agro Veterinary High School ITAV ADH Mabala” to inspect the project as well as to encourage our teachers and students. He also gave soccer balls and jerseys to the pupils. Afterwards he travelled to Lebama, 40 km South of Mabala, and met the farmers who a while back received 500 kg of maize seeds from us for the Maize-Multiplication-Project.

Personal thanks to representatives of the German Embassy for the building cost subsidy granted

Only one and a half years after we took the first concrete steps for the school project, we could already start the first school year in September 2018 in our 'Agro-Veterinary School ITAV ADH Mabala'. The completion of the buildings and the opening of the school went so quickly because the German Embassy in Congo had covered a large part of the costs for the school construction. We are very grateful to the German Embassy for this grant for the construction costs and would like to express our personal thanks on behalf of the beneficiaries of the school construction project in Mabala and the association 'Aktive Direkt Hilfe e. V.'. During his stay in Kinshasa, Wolfgang arranged a meeting with Mrs. Roth, who is responsible for micro-projects within the department at the German Embassy, and the German Ambassador Thomas Terstegen, who finally approved the grant. On this occasion, the adjacent photo was also taken in the premises of the German Embassy in Kinshasa.

Successful Shipment of a Container with Food for Congo & Distribution in Orphanages in Kinshasa

More good news: A while back, Lenka met Pastor Daniel in Prague who is part of the NGO “Feed the Hungry”. He arranged a 40-foot container with fortified rice meal packages, so called „Manna Packs“, from the head organization in the US for Congo. Our job was to find a way to import the container duty-free into the Congo, which is not easy. After several months of preparation, it was possible to import the container customsfree through our longterm partner organization, the ”Scripture Union” in Kinshasa. “Feed the Hungry” in the Czech Republic paid the food and shipping plus another 9000 $ for handling costs, harbour fees and inland transport charges in Congo. The food was distributed to many needy people and institutions, including the COLK orphanage and 500 orphans in Kimbondo where Madlen works so selflessly.

 Sometimes the biggest obstacle to school attendance is the great poverty of the parents. They have so little money that they often cannot pay the school fees. Therefore, our school in Mushapo is for free.
