Germany: Merkel pays visit to kids at Caritas centre in Cologne

German Chancellor Angela Merkel visited Caritas Centre Kalk in Cologne on Friday, and there met with Natalie Dedreux, a young woman with Down syndrome who is known for having asked Merkel a question on abortion during the last election campaign. Merkel can be seen meeting and playing with children in the daycare. Standing next to Dedrex as she spoke to the media, Merkel said she wanted «to say... Еще something about how valuable and important the work here is, which was also evident from the visit to the daycare, and I think that we must recognise that working with and for people is of particular importance.» Dedreux made headlines in Germany when she asked Merkel her position on late term abortion, which Dedreux said was of particular importance to her as she claimed 9 out of 10 babies with Down syndrome are aborted in Germany.
