Suzy’s latest measure to help refugees in Germany — can she speed up the bureaucracy? #richardarmitage
This is the latest chapter from fellow Richard Armitage fan Suzy (German here; English here), who was volunteering at a refugee shelter in her home town, and then took a job in a state employment office where she works to help refugees in Germany integrate into the world of work (previous installment of this story here). She’s learned to think like a bureaucrat and is trying to figure out how to force the bureaucracy to respond to her clients in a timely way. This is a gutsy move; I admire this effort intensely; and “her” refugees are really lucky to have her. Her post should be interesting reading for everyone who’s followed Richard Armitage’s interest in helping refugees. If you would like to donate to the shelter operated by the Berliner Stadtmission, here‘s an English link. That initiative looks like it’s 94 percent funded, so no time like the present.
I wonder — for anyone who’d like to donate to Suzy’s shelter, would it be practical to set up an Amazon wishlist (or is there something that would be better?). Note that you would not get a tax deduction for this, it would just be personal assistance, and you would need to navigate the German Amazon page.
