The faces of the delegation relax, the Ukrainians smile and marvel as they enter the main building of the paraplegic center in Nottwil LU. “Everything, absolutely everything is right here,” says Serhii Bolchuk (46), head of the AGAPE rehabilitation clinic in Lutsk in north-western Ukraine. The delegation is accompanied by Marion Koch (59), the mother of the most famous quadriplegic in German-speaking Europe, Samuel Koch (35). She supports the team with her aid organization in transporting and accommodating refugees with spinal cord injuries.

Marion Koch knows Nottwil very well. She spent twelve months here with her son after he was a contestant on “Wetten dass..?” Had a serious accident on live television in 2010 and has been paralyzed from the neck down ever since. She remembers exactly: “We experienced the most terrible time, but at the same time we enjoyed the best therapy in the world,” she says to Blick. Soon after the accident, she and her son founded the aid organization “Samuel Koch and Friends”. The association supports people who help other people in need.
