New lockers for homeless people in Kreuzberg

Wohnungslose

Homeless people can now safely store their valuables in free lockers on Kreuzberg's Hafenplatz.

"We hope that this will help to make life a little easier for those affected who already have a very difficult life without their own home," said Thomas Mertens from Home & Care Nothilfe GmbH, who opened the lockers on Monday together with the deputy district mayor of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg, Oliver Nöll. The lockers should help to protect personal belongings from loss and theft, said Nöll.

22 lockers of various sizes

A total of 22 lockers of different sizes are available - some small ones for ID documents, others the size of a shoebox or a small suitcase. It is the second such facility in Berlin, the first being located on Finsterwalder Straße in Reinickendorf.
