Update Frauenhaus

The ladies and children of the Frauenhaus are very grateful for our generous donations. Currently there are 19 women and 25 children residing in the house. In April one of the ladies gave birth to a new baby so there is a great atmosphere of love and mutual support amongst the mothers.

At the moment clothing is needed for both the ladies and children, please remember these should be seasonal and lightly worn. Bicycles for children are also needed since the children like to take them with them when they leave the Frauenhaus. Toys are also welcome except for soft toys (Pluschtiere) and books for state health regulation reasons. Please do not donate any shoes unless they are brand new.

Thank you for your kind support!
