Saving Lives

From an early time, Sebastian Jünemann was driven to work in emergency medicine, but couldn’t see himself spending a lifetime in the German medical system. So, he completed an education as a paramedic while completing his civil service course — and even after studying biology and pedagogy, and a master's in organizational psychology, the paramedic work has been running like a continuous thread through Sebastian’s life as a hands-on philanthropist.

He founded CADUS, a Berlin based organization engaged in saving lives through medical and rescue missions. They are active in the Mediterranean Sea on sea rescue missions, as well as in Syria and Northern Iraq with medical treatments, trainings and recently they built a mobile hospital.

In this dossier we will follow CADUS’ mission throughout the year 2017.

For its first chapter we spoke with Sebastian in our editorial office in Berlin.
