Richard Armitage fan Suzy and “her” refugees go to the movies

Richard Armitage at a visit to the Berliner Stadtmission refugee shelter in Spandau, Spring 2016.

Earlier in 2016 and again yesterday, Richard Armitage expressed his awareness of the needs of refugees in Europe. (Note that Italy alone rescued approximately 6,000 just over the weekend and is on track to take in 132,000 this year). Our fellow fan Suzy is involved as a volunteer and at work in advising some of the millions of refugees currently in Germany. She last told us about their current hurdle toward recognition of their status. In this brief post, they go to the movies together. German here and English here.

If you would like to support financially the organization that sponsors the shelter Richard Armitage visited this spring, you can do so in German here and in English here.

  1. She’s a good woman. Horrific pictures are one thing, but to think of someone’s life being so different as to never have been to a movie, somehow makes it more human in a practical way. Does that make sense? Could you translate the three different specific needs on the donation page for me, please?

    • The three projects are for

      1. Materials for sewing project — this seems to be a class they have where refugees sew things they need
      2. Support for Sprachhelfer (this is kind of a vague word — it can mean language teacher, interpreter, someone who comes buy and reads books to kids or does other integrative language exercises with them — in this case it looks like someone who does basic language courses to help people meet their day to day needs)
      3. Support for cooking group — this seems to be a class that helps refugees understand German grocery stores, foods and cooking techniques.
