600 Year-Celebration

600 years Celebration - The Brotherhood of St. Christoph has a rich history that goes back over 628 years. We want to be the anchor for people in need hand in hand. We see ourselves as a generation community that spans the entire globe. Our values of the founding times are our guide today.

Meeting brings Cohesion

Meetings are important to us. People want to be seen and heard. That is as important for our members as it is for the people that we support with our donations. Only thus are hearts drawn together, more closely than just by donations.

Fostering of our community

We place great importance on the fostering of our community. Our annual meeting strengthens our unity and gives us the opportunity to establish our roots and to unite generations.
