Magdeburg – They bring the help where it is needed most: Tokyo Hotel drummer Gustav Schäfer (33) and musician David Friedrich (32, known from the RTL show “The Bachelorette”) drive 1000 kilometers to the Polish-Ukrainian Border.
With two vans and tools on the loading area, the men set off for the people who had to flee Ukraine from Putin’s attack and have nothing left.
“I’m not giving up hope in humanity that such help is a matter of course,” explains Gustav Schäfer. On Tuesday afternoon, the rock musicians want to arrive in Medyka together with their manager Alexander Bruxmeier (28), unloading the blankets, jackets, hygiene articles and other donations in kind that were previously collected via the “Kampfgeist” association.
On the way back, the men want to head for David Friedrich’s childhood home in Groß Strehlitz (Strzelce Opolskie) in Poland. “Refugees are to be accommodated there,” co-organizer Bruxmeier told BILD. According to Friedrich, there is room for around ten people here.
In addition, the men have a donation account (via Instagram) have already collected more than 10,000 euros in donations: “Money that we will spend on site for other urgently needed relief supplies,” says Bruxmeier.
And: in the war zone, it’s not just people who are in need. A special call for help has just been made to the people of Magdeburg: “Animal feed is urgently needed for the animals, some of which the refugees have taken with them.”
Tokio Hotel drummer Gustav: “I don’t think any of us can even remotely imagine what the Ukrainians are going through right now.”
