“Killerpilze” and Julia Simic give the starting shot for the HIGH Five 4 Life Youth initiative of Menschen für Menschen

Munich, 16 June 2016. The aim of Menschen für Menschen ambassadors is to sensitize young people to problems that are not reported daily in the media. Football player Julia Simic of VfL Wolfsburg and the “Killerpilze” rock band – Jo Halbig, Fabi Halbig and Mäx Schlichter – are helping to support the people in a project area of the Menschen für Menschen Foundation, in western Ethiopia.

In a podium discussion on the first campaign day of the new youth initiative HIGH Five 4 Life on 11  June 2016 the four ambassadors made it clear that they are strongly committed to supporting disadvantaged people in Ethiopia, with the aim of giving them a chance of a better life. They have set themselves the goal of promoting the Menschen für Menschen project area in Dale Wabera in western Ethiopia in the areas of food and agriculture, water and hygiene, education, health, social development and income.

They want to pass on to young and young-at-heart volunteers the enthusiasm with which they approached their visits to the Menschen für Menschen projects in Ethiopia. One of these committed young people who has already been with us for ten years, co-founder of the initiative Rebecca Rössling, also took part in the podium discussion. She is convinced that once they have taken the time, volunteers will find that helping the people in the Ethiopian project areas is a worthy cause.

The need to supply emergency food aid clearly demonstrates how important it is to support sustainable projects such as those of the Menschen für Menschen Foundation. The participants were in agreement on this point. Everyone who is interested can obtain information at the campaign platform www.highfive4life.de and https://www.facebook.com/highfive4life2 – whether it is the progress in Dale Wabera or different ways of becoming active. Fundraising campaigns such as benefit concerts, charity runs and sales stands are highly popular. The “Killerpilze” and Julia Simic look forward to your varied and creative commitment.

About Menschen für Menschen:

Menschen für Menschen has been providing aid for self-development in Ethiopia since 1981. Together with the local people, Menschen für Menschen dovetails measures in the areas of agriculture, water, education, health and human development in so-called integrated rural development projects. Eight project regions have already been completed, and responsibility handed over to the indigenous population. The development aid organization was founded by former actor Karlheinz Böhm († 29.5.2014) and is an independent and management-run organization. The project work is currently being carried out in eleven project areas by over 750 full-time Ethiopian employees. The Foundation carries the donation seal of the German Central Institute for Social Affairs (DZI).
