Berliner Tafel e. V.
When the global Corona pandemic started in 2020, many people were in need to receive additional help as many services, including communal services were interrupted or suspended.
Berliner Tavel e. V. is an organisation which helps people to obtain food or groceries at no cost, as well as helps to reduce food-waste. They mainly collect left over groceries from Supermarkets. Prior the pandemic, they collected groceries as described and cooked food for the people of Berlin. The people in need could then come to public places and receive their cooked meals. Sometimes hundreds of people lined up at public places, churches and markets to receive food.
Due to the corona restrictions to mass-gatherings, the above concept of providing meals at public places could not be continued anymore. Berliner Tavel e. V. changed their approach, instead of providing meals publicly, they delivered the groceries directly to the individual households in need. Due to this, their support model changed completely and they needed a lot of additional help for collecting, sorting and delivering of the groceries. This is where I helped them to support the people in Berlin.

Tsunami Relief 2005
It was my first few weeks at Schenker in Sydney and I helped to co-ordinate the supply of food, clothes and other essentials to the degree of packing my first 40" container at 32 degrees in the Australian sun.
With many colleagues we collected items from the citizens of Sydney. At a certain point, our warehouse was overwhelmed with the amount of clothes, toys and food donated by the local Australians.
We worked countless hours to sort the itmes and prepare them for safe shipping to Indonesia.
Knowing that every little step can help the families of the survivors was a great reward.
