Thank you for the fantastic and informative last Thursday evening at Heltorf castle and for shedding light on the situation in Africa where people are struggling with the impacts of climate change, the pandemic and rising prices on the world market.
As a guest of honor, HE Thomas B. Amolo, The Ambassador of Kenya to the Federal Republic of Germany, explained the challenges of Kenya and the African continent but also pointed out that there is a glimmer of hope.
Nathanael Liminski, Minister for Federal, European and International Affairs, informed about the political dimensions of the global hunger crisis. We are very happy about the encouragement and recognition of our work in Africa
