Peace means sharing!

"Can I talk to you for a minute?" I read in a short WhatsApp message. It's written by a friend from Afghanistan, whom I've been able to help to find his way in life here since his arrival in Germany. He is extremely grateful for all the help he has received and shows this gratitude by helping wherever he can. "I know some families who lost everything in the earthquake in Afghanistan, their family members, their houses, their clothes, their food. They have absolutely nothing left. I have already been able to help them to get tents and clothes, but I can't manage much more than that? Do you see any other possibility?" Immediately we develop a new project line to help these very poor to survive. Later I hear that his wife is not getting any financial support for her apprenticeship at the moment. So the monthly budget is very small. Nevertheless, the two gave everything they could.
