“God bless you”
Praise and concrete offers
“You do a great job worldwide!” That is how Federal Minister Dr. Müller directly addressed the humedica team, which had been reduced to 25 staff members because of international on-field work. “I can very well imagine having humedica as a partner in development cooperation projects.”
humedica had prepared a special program for the Minister and, after a short general presentation of the organization, had reported about three current projects. The disaster operation in Serbia has gone on since the middle of May. On the Philippines the former emergency help has long become a medium-term commitment.
After distributions have already been realized in the Central African Republic, the help for thousands of refugees is still in a planning phase, though.
Dr. Gerd Müller, who, not long ago, had visited himself this region in the heart of Africa hit by a bloody civil war, was impressed by the humedica help and offered support from his Ministry for the Central African Republic, too.
“For our team, this visit of Minister Dr. Gerd Müller has been a very encouraging experience”, reacted humedica managing director Wolfgang Groß enthusiastically. "I think that we are going to intensify our commitment in the field of development cooperation in the following years, not least thanks to the Minister’s offered support."
Up to now, humedica emphasizes on emergency help, the budgeting of which is not under the supervision of the Ministry of Economic cooperation and development, but is allocated to the Federal Office of Foreign Affairs and, thus, to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Frank – Walter Steinmeier.
