KARUNA ÖBR's Help for Refugees

 

We are deeply concerned about the conditions by which refugees travel, how they arrive here, how they are being sent on or back, etc. as many of you are as well.  

 

We therefore wanted to help, and so we started (in October 2015) our project KARUNA Help for Refugees.

 

Our approach is a long-term aid for refugees, which should nonetheless also have a time-limit. We want to offer a home for one, two, three, or a few families for a certain period of time. We also want to support the integration of these families. For this purpose we intend to rent living space or to help transform free apartments into homes for refugees, and we intend to look after them.

 

WE INTEND THE FOLLOWING:

  • to rent an apartment of about 80 - 100m2
  • to accommodate a family of refugees there
  • to care for that family closely and integrate the members (in practical terms, financially, emotionally, psychosocially etc.)
  • to convey to them a feeling of home, to support them after their escape and their losses etc.
  • we will found a non-profit association. Transparency and networking are of major importance for us right from the start.

 

WE NEED YOU! WHO IS READY TO HELP?

  • We need sponsors who are willing to commit to donate a fixed amount for an arranged period of time (allowing us to make accurate calculations). Ideally, a donation of 20 Euro per month for the next two years would be sought. We already have 35 sponsors but we hope to come up to 200.
  • We are looking for cost free living space or apartments with low rent
  • People willing to assist us in practical terms: Please get in touch with us!
  • Please tell your friends/family and neighbours about our project!
