We at Rise Foundation e.V. support homeless people in Berlin to improve their living situation. Therefore, we organize events every two weeks, where we distribute vegan meals, hygiene items and other everyday necessities. In addition, we provide information on emergency shelters, counselling centres and other support services in the area. Respectful interaction is very important for us and we take our time for personal conversations. We are also working on new ideas for providing additional support to homeless people. For example, we were able to launch our "Kaffee für Alle!" project in early 2020. As part of this project, we distribute tokens to homeless people that can be exchanged for a hot drink at our partner kiosk at Kottbusser Tor. In times of Corona, we are also distributing face masks and disinfectant.
Since our work is based on donations and voluntary engagement, we rely on your support. The costs of our regular events are as follows:
- Food and beverages: 400 Euro per month
- Hygiene items and medical supplies: 500 Euro per month
Your financial support enables us to continue helping people in need.
