As part of the Kleiderkammer session, and initially in order to keep the children safely off the streets, a small children’s work has begun. This is essentially play-centred. We can currently get anywhere between 2 and 9 children (aged 2-11) and an increasing number of teens also. The little ones are developing language skills while the older ones appreciate the conversation. They have also become friends and that across ethnic / cultural backgrounds.
As the pandemic recedes, we have welcomed back some ‘regulars’ that we have not seen for a very long time. It shows though that the needs, both material and social, have not gone away.
