Solidarity project: 7.200 Euro for refugee children in Lebanon

Guests gather for charity - start of a new project for Nicaragua
Guests of the Studierendenwerk Karlsruhe have collected 25 cents for each solidarity meal and 10 cents for each solidarity muffin over the past two semesters for a MISEREOR project, that supports Syrian refugee children in Lebanon. The proceeds in the amount of 7,200 EUR were handed over by Michael Postert, Managing Director of the Studierendenwerk Karlsruhe, to Eli Kleffner from MISEREOR. At the same time the new project was officially launched: under the motto "Metabolism - turning food into fair jobs" we are collecting in the period 2019/20 for a project from "Brot für die Welt" that supports seamstresses in Nicaragua.

Rowing on the Altrhein (Neupotz) on 27 July - register now!
We are going to row together on the Lusoria Rhenana, which is a faithful replica of a Roman river warship of late antiquity, which was also used on the Rhine at that time to defend against the Teutons. Together we learn how the Romans secured the Rhine against the invasion of the "Barbarian tribes" about 1700 years ago. Here we are instructed by an experienced regular crew and informed extensively about history, rowing technique, ship building and antique employment. After the rowing trip we will picnic together and swim in the lake.

When? July 27, 2019
How much? €3.

Free workshops from the Psychological Help

Besides the workshop we also offer individual, group, and family sessions on all topics regarding student life. For questions and further information we are at your disposal.
