In addition to overnight rooms, the women’s shelter Karla 51 of the Evangelisches Hilfswerk München also runs a café, which is a safe space for women and offers meetings, cultural activities, counselling and food at low prices.
The team is currently looking for support for the transport of lunch for the guests of the café. This has to be collected in the form of lunch boxes in the north of Munich and brought to the women’s shelter. Do you have your own car and time on Tuesday and/or Thursday mornings? Then take over the transport and make sure that homeless women and children receive a decent lunch.

Lesefüchse e. V. is a non-profit association and one of the largest regional reading initiatives in Germany.

You encourage them to read for themselves and thus playfully expand their vocabulary.
Are you a bookworm yourself and would like to read to children in a primary school or city library once a week for an hour? Then grab your books and let’s go!
