Wie es dazu kam...
arcel Steffen, born on the 18th of october 1962,
Visited at an early age, different countries all over the world. After a horrible accident at the age of 23, he was given a second life! This incident made him think about himself and destiny.
The only sense of his future trips is now, to fight poverty behind the walls of holiday resorts. In Switzerland he now lives in modest circumstances working as a painter on the making. All his savings he invests in poor countries. In areas without any government support at all, he started up his own projects just by himself. According to his philosophy: Each coin spent for administration is a lost coin!
Nowadays Marcel is focused on countries like Cuba, Indonesia and Kenya. A lot of persons and families could already profit of his selfless efforts. In Switzerland he collects all second-hand merchandise needed just like clothes, toys, medical devices and medicine. With his own savings and a few sponsors, houses have been built or restored, always in collaboration with local skilled persons.
His philosophy: No assistance without the personal assistance of those in need!
His confidential life?s work avarded in 2004. Marcel Steffen won the Swiss television broadcasting "Swiss Averd", "Hero of the workda".
