it is more blessed to give than to receive

(Acts 20:35)
Thousands of people are fleeing their homeland. They are seeking refuge against war and suffering. They fear for their life. In this time of need we would like to help our fellow human beings and advocate a culture of coexistence – together with you! That is why the ZKM | Karlsruhe has set up a donations account whose proceeds will benefit the aid to refugees in Karlsruhe. We provide the aid which we would also hope for ourselves, because it is more blessed to give than to receive.
Please donate to the account
