Raising money for Cambodia and refugees in South Africa

23/02/2018: Germany

The Maristen-Gymnasium Furth school and the Maristen Solidarität International association in Furth have been involved in solidarity work for the Marist mission in Cambodia and South Africa.

Students from the Maristen-Gymnasium Furth school raised €950 euros for a teaching institute in Sen Monorom, Cambodia, that the Institute is planning on building.

The school did the fundraising during the weeks leading up to Christmas, under the guidance of Johannes Räpple, who led the campaign.

Also, the Maristen Solidarität International association has agreed to donate a large amount to throughout 2018 to help the “Three2six” project (www.three2six.co.za), run by the Sacred Heart College in Johannesburg, South Africa. The project helps child refugees from neighbouring African countries facing xenophobia in Johannesburg, receive education, shelter and regular meals.

As the name of the project implies, the children attend lessons in the afternoons from 3 – 6 p.m.

Colin Northmore, the principal of the Sacred Heart College, visited members of the association on Jan. 20 to show his gratitude for the support granted.
