JOIN member Johanniter-Unfall-Hilfe Austria welcomed seven volunteers from Germany who supported with providing ambulance services at a folk music event in the Corinthia region. The volunteers came from Johanniter-Unfall-Hilfe Germany´s regional branches of Minden-Ravensberg (3), Lippe-Höxter (3) and Stuttgart (1). The exchange was organised by the JOIN Volunteer Swap programme.

The Summer Open Air 2015 event was called “Wenn die Musi spielt”. It was celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. Thousands of fans came to listen to the stars of folk music despite the heavy rain. The festival started on 18 July and ended with a great gala on 25 July. The Johanniter provided ambulance and first aid services during the whole week. The volunteers have learnt working in a mountainous area at the same time making friends with other fellow St John members.
