Following several relief-goods transports and humanitarian missions to various countries including Sudan, Eritrea, Malawi, Ethiopia, Russia, Rumania, Turkey and Iran, he and his family decided to move to Pogradec, in Albania after the opening of the borders in 1991 to actively and sustainably invest in the long-term development of that society.

He was awarded the German Federal Cross of Merit for his multifaceted commitment (Bundesverdienstkreuz) in 2008. On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of Nehemiah Gateway in Albania he received the "Mother Teresa" award, honoring his outstanding achievements for the country of Albania.
