Helpers hope for help


Volunteers are omnipresent in Bad Münstereifel, which was badly hit by the floods. They form chains and extend across entire streets of buckets full of rubble and rubbish to large collection points where heavy equipment can move the rubbish on. Volunteers are smeared with mud at the food counter, where they are in turn taken care of by volunteers. That the politicians come to the disaster area – like Chancellor Angela Merkel on Tuesday to Bad Münstereifel – is noted. With mixed feelings, says Pastor Christian Herrmanns: “There are two sides to it all. I heard of guilt. Some were grateful that the policy was there. Others say they should leave them alone, they just pool their strengths here and leave them alone don’t work for us. It’s nice, I think it’s a good signal if it doesn’t stick to the fact that uncomplicated financial help will come as soon as possible. Then you are in the right place. ” Helper Silke Lorenz says: “It is definitely important that it is made visible what has happened here and what kind of funds the community or the whole district also needs. These are primarily emergency services and funding.” Merkel announced on Tuesday that the federal and state governments should shoulder the construction costs after the flood disaster with a new construction fund. A draft shows that the federal cabinet wants to decide on emergency aid of 400 million euros on Wednesday, of which the federal states are to take over half. A decision on a long-term reconstruction fund in the billions will not be made until later.
