Kälte Hilfe is German for Cold Help and boy does it get cold here in Berlin in the winter months. I’m already wearing three pairs of socks and and makeshift hat-scarf combos.
There are initiatives to get support to the people who need it in these colder months and one of them is KÄLTEHILFE.There is a cold bus that goes and collects people through the night that cannot make it to emergency housing themselves and there are also services that offer a hot meal and medical treatment. Things we often take for granted.
If you are here in Berlin they, and many other organisations are looking for volunteers.
You can also donate to help them run the services – more information can be found here – it’s in German, but translate works just fine 🙂
