A soup kitchen in the heart of Germany

Established by the Community of Sant'Egidio in the city of Mönchengladbach

 
printable version

Even in the north of Germany, in Mönchengladbach, the crisis is felt. The city, due to the collapse of the textile industry, has impoverished for some time. The first people to pay a price for this situation are the elderly.

In fact, many young people have abandoned a city that seems to give few prospects.

The Community of Sant'Egidio has decided to contribute to the reconstruction of the social fabric of the city, opening a place of welcome for those that face the greatest difficulties.

Opening a soup kitchen in the heart of the city, a few steps from the place where the evening prayer takes place, seemed the most immediate response. The difficulties in fact ask for a surge of solidarity and the good news is that, at the announcement of the opening of the soup kitchen, many said they were willing to lend a hand.

It was inaugurated a few days ago: the first guests, mostly elderly, were surprised by the beauty of the environment that welcomed them warmly and in a familiar way.
