From 28-31 July 2022, youths from 9 SAM.I. organisations convened in Bruneck, Italy for the 8th Samaritan Contest.
ASB’s federal exercise usually draws several hundreds of volunteers from across Germany. This year, their European colleagues may join.
After the Covid-19 pandemic caused a postponement of the biennial youth competition, the Samaritan Contest will take place again this year.
From 17 to 19 January Samaritan International (SAM.I) organised its 4th project meeting of the Erasmus+ project TECS (Training and Further Education in Care and Social Services) in Poland.

Heroes without superpowers
SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL understands itself as mediator between European institutions and its member associations in questions of development and implementation of emergency preparedness, civil protection, voluntary work as well as disaster relief and humanitarian aid and topics which concern social services.
The extensive experience and the broad-based know-how of the single organisations offer a good basis for the common international work. Almost three million members, 140,000 volunteers and 45,000 full-time employees form the basis of SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL and the network in the different organisations and countries.
Since they began their work in Germany in 1888, the Samaritans have been operating on a European level. The “Samaritan organisation of workers” was founded in Copenhagen on 28 June 1907 as the first organisation outside of Germany.
