This morning a very valuable cargo landed in the Ecumenical Department of the Church District of Dortmund – 12 heavy folders archive material on the history of the ambulance boat project. It is the estate of the initiator of the project, Pastor Dorothea Philipps, who passed away in June 2021 at the age of 80.

We are very grateful and we are aware of the precious materials. We will take our time and certainly discover some special anecdote about the joint project between Dortmund and the church district bBlenge in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
