If you are sitting in a party mood, smiling, laughing, on a Friday night, on the way to the Club, then you can clasp Yes to your champagne bottles, Dieter Puhl has no Problem. But when he meets in the subway at 11 p.m. on types with glazed eyes and aggressive look, holding on to your beer bottle, then it looks different. Then "scare" the social worker Puhl. Then the thought shoots through his mind: "What's happening with these people?" The answer is he doesn't know, of course, but in another point he is safe. "Happy not to be."
Probably. But he is now ready, Dieter Puhl, 61, trademark flat cap, the legendary head of the railway mission, for ten years. He is now taking on a new task, to be more precise, he extended the existing area. "My job is to make sure that some people fall less under the table than before," he says.
"I never wanted to be something else"
he has taken so far, but also between so-annoying tasks, such as service layers, writing plans, budget plans and to do other office stuff. Now the social worker and deacon Puhl is a strategist ("I never wanted to be something else"). It forms with Mathias Hamann, former Director of the refugee shelter, Krupp road, the core of the "office of social and Christian responsibility".
Sounds a bit bulky, but the idea is to structure the Uraufgabe the city's mission – help for the needy people in many shape and to expand. Puhl and Hamann to dive deeper into the issue, you should search for approaches to expand the network of help.daily mirror people Free
Joachim Lenz, of the Theological Board of the city mission, the order presented on Tuesday the new project, with Lenz and Hamann in the side, in keeping with the theme in the chapel of the city mission Central near the main train station. The city of mission is part of the Evangelical Church.
"What will happen to her if the best social network?"
Lenz drew the main lines of the project. Homelessness, poverty, loneliness, populism, welfare Economics, told everyone he understood the Intention of the city mission. Example of loneliness in Berlin, the capital of the Singles, a huge Problem. How, asked Lenz, actually comes from the old Turkish woman who has lived for 40 years in Berlin without German learned – for whatever reason – and now a widow? The kids are out of the house, the husband had conveyed the social contacts. "What will happen to her if the best social network?"
For such people to find the city mission is now to help. Or even for people living in poverty. "We think about how we accompany people and can enable them to stay in the social game. We are looking to recruit allies. Particularly, the issues of families and poverty in old age are harassing,“ said Lenz.
The city of mission, with her Christian image of humanity, also a long time, however, if, for example, "German homeless against refugees and migrants out" plays are to defend. "That's not enough for us, the gentlemen Hamann and Puhl to think of how to do this in a different way."

you can book The gentlemen Hamann and Puhl, but how to transfer tried-and-tested ideas from the station, mission to other areas, as well as the network of offers of help to expand considered. In the train station mission, they have introduced the "Breakfast, 60 plus" for older people, so the don't have to wait in a queue with a lot of Younger. Something, he thinks, one could introduce, but also in the municipalities of the city of mission.
And Hamann estimates the importance of the background conversations enormously. He would like to bring politicians or other leaders with people from difficult social layer. Then would listen to a group of problems, of which you know nothing, and the other would have Hamann a voice, "you don't hear otherwise" ().
Puhl, a fall even more ideas. He has now 14 days time to Think. The holiday in La Palma is already booked.More about
