Rando’s “Berlin AirBridge” is taking off in a few days time and a lot of our donations are destined to the former Tempelhof Airport where now refugees are in temporary shelter.
Built as Hitler’s showpiece of Nazi Germany’s new power, used during the blockade by the USSR to provide food and keep WestBerlin alive before reopening as a commercial airport.
Closed less than 10 years ago, and instead of becoming a major exhibition centre generating revenue for the City of Berlin, it was decided to transfer the hangars into a shelter for 2700 refugees!
Not many airports can say they were a central part of so many major historical events of not only the 20th century, but now also the early 21st!
If you want to help, you can donate money to Rando’s gofundme campaign.
Supporting his campaign is money well spent. No overhead costs, everything is transparent and your money goes directly to the refugees.
Londoners can also donate clothes and other useful supllies, which are stored before being ‘muled’ over to Berlin.
Read here about his hands-on humanitarian work for the refugees in Europe. To catch up, read my article about his gofundme page
He keeps collecting clothes and anything that the refugees can use, from toothbrushes to socks and other supplies and then sends them over to Germany in the “Berlin Air Bridge 2015” side of his activities. He also keeps flying to Lesbos at other times to help more hands on. Supporting his campaign is money well spent. No overhead costs, everything is transparent and your money goes directly to the refugees.
