Merry Christmas

Dear friends

We wish you rest, peace and the blessing of love during the holidays and in the coming year. I would like to use a small selection of images to illustrate how your help is making a difference. How we give children confidence and later create opportunities for jobs, progress and peace. That too is like a Christmas story.

Past and present – pictures write history

Pictures of one of our families – from different years. What goes through my mind? “The value of time and sustainability.” “The right to grow up in a child-friendly environment.” “Dignity, self-confidence and health.” “Stronger together.” “The future can come – we are ready!”

And what comes to mind when you see these pictures?


Believing in the future

Perhaps you share my view that what really counts in life cannot be calculated. Happiness usually comes unexpectedly. What many people will be celebrating over the next few days – this hope-giving message of the Christmas story – defies all calculations.

It is a tradition from the 1st century AD, written by authors who were rooted in the Jewish tradition and were convinced of the incarnation of God in the person of the Jew Jesus of Nazareth. They wrote down a story of faith – and not historical documentation.

But even those who do not share the Christian hope can celebrate and enjoy Christmas. As a celebration of peace, love and humanity – we need all of this today more than ever. Here, there and everywhere.

With this in mind, I wish you a happy festive season, thank you for your loyalty, attention and appreciation and send you my warmest regards.

Always yours
