Emmaus Europe

The Challenges in Germany


Serena Lemmens
National delegate for Germany

“As members of an international movement it is important for us to be involved in solidarity initiatives and to defend Emmaus’ values. Thus we regularly send objects to our partner groups in Poland, Lithuania and Romania, amongst others. We give between 20 and 40% of the objects we collect to communities in other countries or to local charities. We are also involved in several organisations which support refugees by launching initiatives to ensure peace, to fight against racism and with local solidarity initiatives.”
