Edinburgh Mayor Donates Shoes for Refugees in Munich

Last week a donation from Scottish Edinburgh reached the Bavarian capital. The 12 tonne donation came with trucks and contained mostly clothes for refugees who are now in Munich and in other parts of Bavaria. A box came from the Mayor (Lord Provost) of Edinburgh Donald Wilson himself and contained some of his shoes and a coat donated by his wife. The donation was organised by Edinburgh Direct Aid (EDA). Volunteers from Edinburgh also came to Munich.

“The people from Edinburgh and the surrounding area have donated many things that refugees may need, especially now, because it gets cold: winter clothing, tents, sleeping bags, "says Denis Rutovitz, head of the Scottish charity.

Over one million refugees and migrants have come into Germany so far this year. Most of them entered the country during the summer and have no own winter clothes. Edinburgh and Munich are partner cities since 1954.
