SAMARITAN’s B.E.S.T. International
1st place: Beltsamariter project
The Forum 2013 was also the occasion to decorate extraordinary projects of Samaritan organisations with the SAMARITAN’s B.E.S.T. awards for the first time. The international SAMARITAN’s B.E.S.T. went to the project „Beltsamariter“ of ASB Schleswig-Holstein and of Dänische Volkshilfe.
The goal of the project is the cross-border deployment of volunteers in the sectors of Medical Service and Visiting Service for the Elderly.
The trophy was presented by the “developers”, the workshop for the disabled in Zeesen. The prize money in the amount of 3,000 € was donated by UNION Versicherungsdienst GmbH and personally submitted to the winner in the form of a cheque by UNION representative Andreas Sauer.
Further information is available on the website of the Beltsamariter project. (German/Danish).

The goal of the project was to raise the awareness among young people of the eldery people’s needs and to support the intergenerational dialogue between young and old in the different European countries.
