Closed Donations for the rent of flatshares matched by "Refugees Welcome"

Why shouldn't refugees in Germany be able to live in shared flats (or other normal housing situations) instead of mass accommodation? We thought the same & found a way to make it possible.

“Refugees Welcome” is a platform that was founded in November 2014 to connect refugees with locals who are willing to share their living space. This can be in form of a traditional flatsharing arrangement, in a family context, with a single parent, or maybe a single person who has extra space available in their home. The core element of the concept is that some form of cohabitation is attained that displays all the advantages of living within a community. We are here to answer queries about cohabitation and to apply on your behalf for cost coverage through federal funds. Further information is available at http://flüchtlinge-willkommen.de/en.

All the donations in this project go directly to flatshares matched by "Refugees Welcome" to pay their rent.

We thank you for your support, which rendered “Refugees Welcome” possible in the first place. Thank you!
