Readers: how can we help those suffering on the Bornholm? How can we reach out to our neighbours and be at our best at this time?
Dear Readers, I am horrified and distraught to relate that one of our most reliable voices on the ground, Bjarne Hansen, of the Dueodde Emergency Services, has been badly injured in this second round of airstrikes. My colleagues on the ground report that there are many more civilian casualties than have been official announced.
Editor of the Bornholm Stemme reports, “A hospital near Duodde has just been evacuated with the help of local citizens…people are fleeing to the north of the island…just packing a rucksack and walking north. It’s mayhem here.”
Readers: I urge you to reach out via the Go Fund Me page below to ensure people can live with dignity while displaced; meanwhile Swedish friends are opening their homes to our stranded people. Do what you can, be kind, be brave.
