Many refugees will remain in Germany for a long time. The wars in Syria and Afghanistan and persecution in iran or Eritrea hinders the return of refugee families to their home country. A united life with our new neighbors will be much easier with one language. With your donations, we want to provide organizations, sports clubs, and other initiatives, with language courses, soccer tournaments, and volunteer support.
The Cologne Refugee Council advocates for integration, tolerance, and human understanding. Also, it is operating the refugee center, "Fliehkraft". The Rheinflanke group visits the accommodations daily in a converted school bus with an extensive sports center and counseling room. Through this, a comprehensive sports, health, and counseling proposal is possible. These two organizations are dependent on donations to finance their work.
For many people, our work with refugees is very enriching. They bring us art, culture, and wonderful food to our city. Industries, craftsman, clinics, and senior homes are excited for new volunteers and employees. All this to say, we are happy to welcome you!
