We are Michael, Martina and Ingo and since the beginning of the year we are the new board of One Happy Family – Support – Germany e.V..
The three of us got to know each other in October / November 2019 in the OHF project on Lesbos and already worked together there. When it became clear at the end of last year that the old board of the German Support Association would dissolve, we decided to form the new board to continue the great and successful work. Again, a big thank you to the old board members for their commitment!
I, Michael am working as treasurer in the association and I am responsible for the donations and the requests of volunteers, before and after their assignment in the project on Lesvos.
In my free time I like to be on tour with my camper or volunteer in other social projects.
I, Martina am the 1st chair of the board and was together with Ingo as a volunteer in the OHF- project in 2019. I worked a lot in the Nest. My tasks in the association are organizing, leading the general meetings and fundraising. Otherwise, I work as a social worker in the field of migration and am active at Seebrücke Freiburg. I like to spend my free time at the sea, with good books, friends, singing or meditation.
I, Ingo am the 2nd chairman of the board. My tasks include communication with the Coordination Team on the ground in Lesvos and with the board of the Swiss association and supporting the fundraising team. After my first stay in 2019, I was back at OHF in 2020 and witnessed the fire in Moria there, which left lasting impressions. That’s why I plan to go back to Lesvos this year. By profession, I am a computer scientist and work as a software developer. In my free time I like to tinker and spend time with friends.
Although we as the board and other committed members of the association were busy with structural changes at the beginning of the year (relocation of the association’s headquarters and changes to the statutes), we continue to receive donations on a regular basis and have already transferred money to Greece.
Currently we are working on the redesign of the OHF flyer and on the organization of a Christmas fundraiser.
