Let's get something going together for people in Ukraine and refugees in our neighborhoods!
You have contacts in Ukraine? You collect relief supplies and plan actions? Get in touch with us!
With us place at the Rothenberg you can become active and organize collections for relief supplies at home.
We miss the scouts!
It's been a long time since scouts were also at home on the Rothenberg in St. Joseph during hard times and were banned during the Nazi era. The Graf Folke Bernadotte tribe lives to this day in the DPSG Vellmar.
Now in the Ukrainian mission, we experience great Scouts in the region and have contact with friends in Ukraine, more precisely in Lviv (Ukrainian Львів? /i Lwiw [lʲʋiu̯], Polish Lwów [lvuf], Yiddish לעמבערג YIVO Lemberg, Armenian Լվով [lvov], Russian Львов Lwow [lʲvof]) in western Ukraine.
Many requests for support reach us from there. We would like to support them and are establishing a network of helpers here in the region. Are you with us?
We have a lot of space at the Josephskirche (near the Marienkrankenhaus) and there are many tents around the church.
There is also a lot to do here for groups and circles! For example, sorting dressing material or clothing donations, making campfires, planning children's afternoons, helping to load transports and more!
We always have something to do and are very interested in lively and uncomplicated contacts. Nobody has been able to teach our small group of Malteser Youth the most important knots yet!
We not only have the tent village, but also offer overnight accommodation in the church and can heat up the field kitchen... Please get in touch!
Pfadis can do that!
Networks serve the help!
The unspeakable war in Ukraine lasts now already many months. We Malteser in Kassel on the Rothenberg have endeavored since the outbreak of the war to help where it is possible.
Maybe one or the other remembers the large clothing collection in the church St. Joseph, which has always understood itself as a social church with offers of help for those living in the area, as well as regular distribution of food and clothing. With the friends from the Association of Ukrainians in the city and district of Kassel, we can carry out transports and humanitarian actions with our foreign service.
We Malteser are an international Catholic relief organization. We help people in emergency situations, regardless of their religion, origin or political conviction, in Germany and worldwide.
Voluntary service and volunteering for people in need. Faith and helping in the tradition of the Order of Malteser still relevant today.More about the organisation
