Field report

Name of the project: Advent get-together with senior citizens

Date: 29.11.2023

Name: Julia E.

Why did you participate in the project?

Ich habe an dem Projekt teilgenommen, weil vor allem ältere Menschen gerade zur Weihnachtszeit an Einsamkeit leiden und ihre Familien und Freunde besonders vermissen. Daher wollte ich einen kleinen Beitrag dazu leisten, dass wenigstens ein paar Menschen, sich beim gemeinsamen Plätzchen essen, Musik hören und ein paarschönen Gesprächen weniger einsam fühlen oder einfach ein paarabwechslungsreiche Stunden verbringen können.

What did you like most about it?

I particularly enjoyed the conversations with the senior citizens. Many of them talked about their families, their lives in the past or wanted to find out about our lives. It was nice to hear that they were happy about our visit.

What did you maybe not like so much?

There was nothing I didn't like about the Social Day.

How important is volunteering to you?

Volunteering is very important to me, as everyone can make a contribution to society, no matter what form it takes. After all, we are all a part of it.

What do you take away from the project?

How important family and friends are. And that we could all call our parents or grandparents more often again. 😊
