Our guild “Cosmas and Damian” has received an award called “helping hearts – DM award for social commitment 2016”. “DM” is a chain of drugstores in Germany. They awarded volunteers for their social activities in 2016.
In our guild, there are 18 adult scouts with and without special needs. We are between 31 and 65 years old. Some of us have known each other for more than 30 years. As usual in Scout and Guide Fellowship formerly some of us were cubs, scouts, rovers or leaders.
Nevertheless, handicaps are not our main theme. We are interested in lots of things and questions. We really live inclusion. It is self-evident that everybody helps the others. So every member of our guild - whether with or without handicap – is socially engaged.
We are very proud of the honour of this award.
