my name is Kim and I live in Bützow in northern Germany.
This week a tornado hit my city and caused a lot of damage for the whole city. We have never experienced anything like this before. Everyone is still in shock but we are trying to move forward and fix everything.
Unfortunately my family is one of the few ones that don't have a household insurance ("Hausratsversicherung" in German), so we have to pay most costs on our own.
My mom works 2 jobs, one as a kitchen hand in a restaurant and one as a housecleaner in a church (which she probably will lose because the church is highly damaged as well). Both my brother and I are students and receive student loans. So we don't really have any reserved money.
I'm hoping that we can raise enough money to fix our roof, floors and windows.
