€20,000 for former prisoners of fascist jails from Catholics of Germany

One-time financial aid was granted by “Maximilian-Kolbe-Verk” charity fund to “A”-group’s prisoners of fascist jails – to those who had witnessed horrors of concentration camps, ghettos, gas chambers and crematoria.

Volunteers of charitable mission from Germany are visiting Mogilev region; within the next two weeks they will be meeting former prisoners to give each of them €250’s certificates. The first meeting was held in Mogilev; and tomorrow guests from Germany are leaving for Bobruisk. “80 people from Mogilev region will receive the aid”, - Ursula Fox, a volunteer of “Maximilian-Kolbe-Verk” charity fund, told. This is a non-governmental catholic organisation sponsored by private investors. We have been providing financial aid to former prisoners of fascist jails for a long period. Besides, some of them are invited to spend some weeks in Germany.

Our charitable activity started in Poland in 1973. Since 1992 we have been providing aid to ex-prisoners living in the former USSR.
