Kurdistan’s government receives delegation from Luftfahrt ohne Grenzen/Wings of Help and Big City Beats

Prime Minister Barzani thanked the organization for its long-standing humanitarian aid for the needy people in Northern Iraq

The leadership of the Autonomous Region of Kurdistan expressly thanked the Frankfurt aid organization Luftfahrt ohne Grenzen / Wings of Help e.V. (LOG / WOH) and the media entrepreneur Bernd Breiter at a reception in the capital Erbil for the longstanding humanitarian aid for the people in northern Iraq. The Prime Minister of the Autonomous Region of Kurdistan, His Excellency Masrur Barzani, received a delegation from LOG / WOH in his seat of government, which consisted of Frank Franke (LOG President) and the Frankfurt media and event entrepreneur and LOG member Bernd Breiter. At the reception in Erbil, the Kurdish Prime Minister paid tribute to the German aid organization's long-standing, high level of commitment to the large number of refugees in the camps in the north of the country. The Kurdish Prime Minister found Bernd Breiter's idea to combine humanitarian aid with the “Big City Beats Space Club Kitchen” event and to underline the solidarity of all people – especially after the pandemic – as outstanding. At the “Big City Beats Space Club Kitchen” in February 2022, kitchens and hotspots around the world will connect with the international space station ISS in order to cook a meal together at the same time. It will be the first international and orbital event in which the earth feeds together at a global table.

Shortly before, LOG / WOH set up a third computer school in the Autonomous Region of Kurdistan. The school is part of the LOG / WOH program “Education is Future”, which the aid organization has introduced for the needy in twelve countries over the past few years. It should give people, like here in the Kurdish camp Khanke (picture) not far from the city of Erbil, new perspectives, enable training and participate in scientific teaching programs even at universities such as the University of Dohuk and Erbil. In the Hasan Sham and Khanke camps, Frank Franke and Bernd Breiter were convinced of the refugees' situation and of their great need. With the support of Bernd Breiter, a large number of warm clothes could be handed over for the coming cold months. In addition, Bernd Breiter handed over new instruments to the music school in the Barsima warehouse.

Mission in Greece for refugees from Afghanistan

A rather rare operation in the almost twenty-year history of Luftfahrt ohne Grenzen / Wings of Help (LOG / WoH) has now occurred in Greece: The Frankfurt aid organization provided several hundred displaced persons from Afghanistan with warm clothes, with masks against Covid-19 and others means of daily use. After difficult negotiations with the Taliban, the refugees came from Afghanistan via Georgia to Athens, where they are received and looked after by the Greek aid organization ELPIDA Home. ELPIDA's call for help for winter clothing now reached LOG / WoH, which reacted immediately. During these days a large truck transport from Germany arrived at the around 500 refugees who are housed in Thessaloniki and Athens. These included many female members of the former Afghan parliament in Kabul, senior civil servants from the judiciary and university professors, doctors and other academics. After the Taliban came to power, they all lost their jobs, their families were threatened and so fought to leave the country where 15 million people are now starving.

Luftfahrt ohne Grenzen/Wings of Help e.V. (LOG/WoH) and its Greek partner, the aid organization ELPIDA Home, want to help quickly and unbureaucratically. LOG/WoH wants to assemble a truck transport to Thessaloniki during the Christmas season to alleviate the refugees’ plight. LOG/WoH board members have already purchased winterized and warm clothing for the transport. To finance the transport, we are asking for donations to make this spontaneous winter mission possible.
