About this project

At least 6 employees of the Max Delbrück Centre have already taken in around 20 refugees from Ukraine and offered them a safe haven in their homes or second homes. They are proving to be efficient helpers with integration.

The authorities are currently overwhelmed. Registrations can now be made digitally, but processing takes weeks and social benefits can only be applied for after successful registration.

Until then, travel is necessary, expenses for medicine and food, assumption of higher incidental costs, etc. are necessary. We would like to support our colleagues and their refugees concretely and also encourage other colleagues to think about sharing the accommodation if this is possible. If not, other forms of support will help:  Your financial donations help both the host families to cover the increased costs of living (additional costs related to the accommodation and especially fuel costs) and the refugees to finance essentials such as food, hygiene products and costs related to communication.

We aim to pay a lump sum of 200 euros to the hosts for each person they take in, regardless of whether it is an adult or a child. For example, 50% of this could go to the refugees and 50% to the host families, with the final distribution of the donation being up to the host families.

Our initial donation target is 6000 Euros. If every MDC employee would donate 6 Euros, we would quickly reach this goal. With this, we can support the reception of 30 people by MDC colleagues and relieve them a little for the costs related to the reception.
 

Support private accommodation with a small donation.


We hope for your great solidarity and willingness to help. Please feel free to spread the word about the appeal for donations.
