How do you get to help others? Everyone has their own answer to this question. In our case, it was our job and duty to make a difference. As journalists and founders of Bigent UG, we visited many critical areas around the world. Jutta Schwengsbier worked in the South Sudan region, an area marked by a civil war lasting for over 50 years. Mirko Schwanitz served in parts of Eastern and South-East Europe.
How long can you just stand and watch thousands of people dying in a civil war such as the one in South Sudan? Is it just enough to report about the thousands of children living in poor conditions, hunger, and need? And is it even possible, as a journalist, to stay unbiased when supporting one side? A journalist named Rupter Neudeck, founder of the humanitarian organisation “Anamur“ and “Grünhelme“, proved this to be possible. Just like Rupter Neudeck, we have dedicated our time volunteering for sustainable community developments and peace work for over 15 years. Jutta Schwengsbier alone, dedicated 20 years in the South Sudan region. She has been an expert for the Society for Threatened Peoples International (STPI) in Africa for many years, and is a well-known correspondent for the South-Sudan. Mirko Schwanitz founded the most successful charity organisation for orphaned children in Bulgaria and is a recognized expert when it comes to sustainable projects for several countries in South-East Europe. Why not connect experts, knowledge, and established networks?
