Pensioners live on 5 euros a day: Everyone wants to help Werner


Sonthofen – It was the most moving weekend for him in a long time.

On Friday, BILD reported on early retirement Werner Dachs (63) from Blaichach (Bavaria). The former cameraman at Munich Bavaria had twice defeated cancer. He lives alone and is currently receiving basic security from the state. After deducting rent, electricity, landline and insurance, he has just around five euros a day to live on.

Many BILD readers contacted Pensionner Werner directly, others in the editorial office: Everyone wanted to help him. The postman even brought a packet of coffee from an elderly couple in Saxony on Saturday.

Werner overwhelmed and touched yesterday: “I wouldn’t have thought that there was so much willingness to help. I get offers for shirts, pants, suits, shoes. Many people ask how they can just do something good for me. “

Among them, for example, dentist Eva Müller (37) from Munich: “I’m donating a cell phone to Werner with a monthly credit of 50 euros. And he can come to me for treatment at any time. Without additional costs. ”

Truck driver Andreas Otto (58) from Straubing (Bavaria) says: “In five years I will be Werner’s age, who knows how things will look then.” He sends basic food and 50 euros: “Plus a lottery ticket with three fields filled in for twelve weeks.”

Elementary school assistant Dilza Maier (54) from Binzen (Baden-Württemberg) to BILD: “Werner’s fate touches me very much. I would like to donate 200 euros to him. “

There are also signs of improvement in the mobility issue. A Caritas helper wants to fill out an application for a senior scooter (2,500 euros) with the pensioner. So he would come spontaneously to the district town of Sonthofen five kilometers away – without always having to spend 3.60 euros on the train ticket.

Werner is happy: “That was beyond my possibilities so far.”
