Funeral of Nyabuga Polycarp Onsongo in Kenya

The world-wide humedica family is still filled with deep sadness about the tragic death of our country director Sudan, Nyabuga Polycarp Onsongo. Our thoughts are with his wife Agnes and his two children and we try to stand by the family in every way possible.

At present, humedica managing director Wolfgang Groß is staying in Kenya to attend the funeral of our country director Sudan, who was killed in a tragic car accident. He will spend some days in the country with Polycarp’s family and, afterwards, travel to Sudan, where staff members need comfort and new courage for their daily work.

At this point, we would like to thank all the people who offered their condolences to Polycarp’s family and ourselves either orally or in the condolence book opened for this purpose. Wolfgang Groß will print the entries and hand them over personally to the family.

Please continue expressing your condolences in the book. We will forward all entries to the family. We greatly appreciate your sympathy and prayers. Heartfelt thanks.

For the fourteenth time already, the “Internationale Berliner Begegnung” conferences took place in the German capital from the 18th to 20th of June 2009.

This interesting event, which is organized by members of the German Bundestag, offers the possibility to gain insight into to world of politics and, together with members of parliament, reflect upon the possibility of assuming responsibility before God and human beings in a world full of problems.

In the frame of various workshops, presentations, discussions and personal encounters, this event offers the opportunity to exchange ideas with people in positions of responsibility in politics and society.

The exchange between participants of different religious and political backgrounds from all over the world is of great importance and constitutes a great opportunity that should not be underestimated.

Right from the first time that the conferences took place, the Foundation for Basic Values and International Understanding (Berlin) that entertains friendly contacts with humedica, has taken an active part in the organization of the event. humedica was represented by its three-person executive committee, Mrs. Waltraud Walz, Mr. Georg Müller and Mr. Wolfgang Groß.

Anniversary festivities are approaching

There are now only three weeks left to humedica’s 30th anniversary festivites: dear friends and supporters, we hope to welcome you as our guests at this delightful event.

Apart from renewing our cordial invitation we would like to again advise you to look for accommodation as soon as possible. There will be few guest rooms available in the region because of the “Tänzelfest”, Kaufbeuren’s traditional medieval town festival that will take place at the same weekend.

If you would like help us as a volunteer during the weekend of our festivities, please contact Mr. Joachim Panhans, Phone: 08341-966148-0. Every helping hand is very much appreciated. Thank you so much.
