"One check - but a double purpose",
|that was the slogan to illustrate the idea of the "health day" on Sunday, June 17, 2007, in the parish of Seliger Nikolaus Groß.|
|The members of the parish had opportunities galore to find out how fit they really were: their eyes, ...|
|... nose, blood (pressure and sugar) and brain were examined by specialists, they could learn e.g. a lot about herbs and their effect on the human body, they could listen to a doctor lecturing on rheumatism; ...|
|... and they could try and taste healthy (and not so healthy) food and drinks.|
|For the kids their was a special programme where they could e.g. learn what to do after a sunstroke or after an accident and of course play a lot of games.|
|All this was for free, but donations were welcome (and generously given!) to accomplish the second purpose of the day: supporting Dom Ardian's health project in the mountains of Shllak.|
EUR 1.200 can be sent to Albania to help providing people with medicine and first-aid material and maybe pay for a nurse. The day was a great success and we say thank you to all the people involved offering either their expertise or their financial support.
