For Freemasons, social commitment is a commandment of charity.
Institutions and foundations of the great National Lodge of the Freemasons of Germany:
As examples of the activities of our large national lodge of the Freemasons of Germany and the St. John's Lodge "zum Aries", above all two charitable institutions are particularly emphasized: the Zinnendorfstiftung and the Saint John's brother help.
These institutions and foundations are supported by our St. John's Lodge. At the same time, social and humanitarian projects are also accompanied by the Brotherhood.
