Meet the team
Hoffnung für Menschen e.V. was established in 2004 in Weiden. We are a non-profit organisation, whose staff members work only on a voluntary basis. It is our aim to help people help themselves. Furthermore, people who have found themselves in need with no fault of their own are also supported.
The founding of the organisation was brought to life with the initiative of the catholic priest Anthony Soosai. He himself was born in the area of Kanniyakumari and grew up in a fisher’s family. Anthony also lost his father at a young age and realised early on what it was like to grow up as a son of a widow.
Obviously the work in India cannot only be organised from Weiden. We have a team of six priests, these are Edmond, Jerry, Selvan, Felix, Edwin and Amuthan. We are thankful that the Bishop of Nagercoil allows this team to work closely with us.
