What are Vitamins for the Heart? Additionally to the physical help for us the spiritual support has likewise a big meaning. ‘Vitamins for the Heart’ is the title of series in which we publish new articles monthly. The Vitamins are compositions out of texts, which we are friendly allowed by the authors to present on our webpage. Because we had many positive reactions to the vitamins we also want to present them on our webpage and hope that they will also bring many others a big pleasure.

CHRISTMAS THOUGHTS Christmas is the spirit of giving without a thought of getting. …It is forgetting self and finding time for others and the true values in life. – Thomas S.

ADH celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.

Due to health reasons, we had to spend more than one year in South Africa in 2005/2006 (photo 6), after which we returned to Congo in 2007 (photo 7). In 2011, we shifted the focus of our work to the countryside where the need is much bigger than in the city. From 2011-2016 we built and supported our first school in the interior in Mushapo (photos 8-11). During this time, more than 2000 pupils (photo 12 & 13) received free education in our school, unheard of…

Speech of Wolfgang Schmidt (ADH e. V.) at the Brumlovka Business Center in Prague: You can also watch the complete speech as a video under this link. The presented Speech was not commissioned by Aktive Direkt Hilfe e. V. but in private responsibility of the author Wolfgang Schmidt (Vice President of Aktive Direkt Hilfe e. V.). The political statements contained in this publication are personal views of the author, which do not necessarily reflect the views of the association. Although Aktive Direkt Hilfe e. V. dissociated from the political statements contained, the publication is presented in full on this website due to the high degree of compliance with the convictions of the association. I was asked to give a speech along the line of the TEDx Talk I gave by the title: “Change the World with Love” (photo 1). I am delighted to share more news about the Democratic Republic…
