We are all in the same boat!
In Togo, on the shores of Lake Togo, the “Maximilian Reinelt Zentrum” is taking shape.
Togo is a country in West Africa, and it has links with Germany that reach far back into the past. The people living near the capital, Lomé, on Lake Togo, and especially children and youngsters, will benefit from the sustainable aid rendered here within the scope of international friendship and joint humanitarian support from Togo and Europe. Christian charity in action, serving as an example of how to improve the precarious living conditions of local people. Changing their prospects for a healthy successful life and giving them a chance to overcome poverty. The aim is to provide European athletes, educators and doctors as well as other people involved in the medical sector with an opportunity for getting to know Africa in its uniqueness, beauty and finding out what makes it so special.
Together – Successful – Powerful – In Harmony
A commitment to Togo. More than 100 years ago, the German naval doctor, Dr Erich Paulun, founded the German Tongji Medical School in Shanghai. Today it is one of the largest university hospitals in the world: this year the Tongji Hospital in Wuhan (6,000 beds, 9.5 million treatments a year) treated the largest number of Corona patients in accordance with European standards. Tongji – a challenge for our project in Togo!

“What matters in the end is how you follow through.”
This is the advice Max always gave, and which he himself followed in every aspect of his life. It enabled him to enjoy outstanding success both in his sporting endeavours and in becoming a medical doctor. He placed even greater importance on relationships. There, too, Max always “followed through” and always made himself available for his family, his fiancée and his friends. It is for this reason that he was much loved and regarded as a role model by many.
(Lukas Müller, friend and partner in the German Eight rowing team)
