About this project

The ongoing war in Ukraine affects us all!

Through your DONATIONS you can now directly support local initiatives for refugees from Ukraine in Berlin:
We, as housing.berlin team, take care of fair, individual and safe housing, care and onward travel for refugees from Ukraine with special needs.

What is the current situation for refugees in Berlin?

Every day, between 1000 to 4000 refugees from Ukraine arrive at Berlin train stations. Often, they are subsequently housed in state-run mass shelters or bussed directly to other states.
Especially for people with special needs, such as very old people, families with very young children, pregnant women+, people with physical and mental impairments, as well as chronically ill people, these accommodations are not an optimal solution. They are often not barrier-free and can rarely guarantee a close-meshed, individual, psycho-social care structure. Also LGBTQIA+ and BiPoC persons or people with unclear visa status often have a particularly hard time arriving in these state systems and being adequately cared for.

What do we do as housing.berlin team?

We at housing.berlin work under the volunteer umbrella organization #BerlinArrivalSupport in cooperation with Schöneberg hilft e.V. and support particularly vulnerable groups in finding suitable accommodation and care in the greater Berlin area and Germany-wide. We refer to verified private hosts, supervised community centers and organizations with expertise in housing refugees with special needs. In the first 5 weeks of the war, we have managed to find suitable accommodation for more than 5000 people.

How can I help?
You can officially donate to the housing.berlin team here! 100% of your financial support goes to the refugees on the ground and enables us to reserve hotel places as a barrier-free alternative to emergency shelters, to organize and manage information materials, and to pay for our volunteer drivers* to drive people safely to their private accommodations.

You are welcome to inform yourself about our work and further support possibilities in more detail at: https://instagram.com/berlinarrivalsupport?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y=.

We look forward to your help!
