The media images of the flood disaster in July are anchored in people's memories.

On the initiative of the Mayor of Ohlstadt, Christian Scheuerer, a fundraising campaign was started in our district that benefits the people of Kreuzberg an der Ahr.

Harald Heinlein was part of the crew of an ADAC rescue helicopter that was deployed in the summer in the area around the village of Kreuzberg an der Ahr (Rhineland-Palatinate). Back home, he told Christian Scheuerer of his impressions. The mayor of Ohlstadt did not hesitate for a second and initiated a fundraising campaign, which all mayors of the Garmisch-Partenkirchen district have now joined.

First, Christian Scheuerer got in touch with the mayor, Anke Hupperich. Kreuzberg an der Ahr is a district of the Altenahr community, about 30 kilometers southeast of Bonn. The flood of water and mud damaged 110 of the 145 houses in the village. Two women were killed in the night of the flood, but they did not drown. Anke Hupperich: “Of the original 700 inhabitants, only 50 were able to stay in the village. Many old people are uprooted because their homes or old people's homes have been destroyed. Children are traumatized because the memories of the events have engraved themselves deeply in their souls. "But Hupperich makes one thing clear in her moving letter to Christian Scheuerer:" We are Rhinelander, full of confidence. The people are bracing themselves to rebuild their homeland,even if they have lost houses and jobs themselves. ”In view of the widespread destruction, Christian Scheuerer asked how and where to help. In the meantime he came into contact with Praxedis von Boeselang, who made large parts of their 'Burg Kreuzberg' available as an operations center for aid workers from all over Germany; So the helicopters started their rescue missions from the courtyard: “In Kreuzberg everything that once gave our social life space has been destroyed - community center, sports field, kindergarten, school, inn and restaurant.” Now it was clear: “We are helping to rebuild the community center .

""We are helping to rebuild the community center.""We are helping to rebuild the community center."

Christian Scheuerer sent an appeal for donations to the district citizens. The mayors of all 22 municipalities have given their support. District Administrator Anton Speer is there, hoping that one or the other proceeds from the charity events of the local associations will flow into the flood relief initiative. Good ideas and campaigns are always welcome, emphasizes Christian Scheuerer, who is happy to provide further information. The account of the Garmisch-Partenkirchen district guarantees that 100 percent of the donations will reach the people of Kreuzberg; IBAN: DE 87 7035 0000 0000 0280 01. Purpose: Flutopferhilfe Kreuzberg eV - FAD 59920. Donation receipts are available from the financial administration of the Garmisch-Partenkirchen district office.

Mayor Christian Scheuerer hopes for a great response: “The people in Kreuzberg no longer have a room where they can meet.

It is so important that after the traumatic events they can find their way back to a common village life. "Mayor Anke Hupperich:" The sympathy and interest of the people in the Garmisch-Partenkirchen district is for the citizens of Kreuzberg, now in the time after the flood, an invaluable gift. ”Günter Bitala
