Emilia Proksch had been a volunteer at ELIJAH for a year. This year she has extended her commitment. “The most formative experience for me was seeing what real social work can achieve. For example, when a girl who doesn’t know how to hold a pen starts writing after a very short time.” Emilia helps in the village of Marpod in the Sokeres social center, is in contact with many families in the village and knows many worries and needs. For many children she is a big sister.
