Our neighbors in Ukraine are fighting for their lives and many women, children, and elderly people have been forced to leave their homes. Within Ukraine, UNHCR speaks of about 6.5 million people who are seeking protection in other parts of the country. Another 4.5 million people have already left the country - 90% of them women and children.
As of the beginning of April, about 270,000 had already arrived in Germany. Help with visits to local support agencies, language lessons, or simply a warm welcome - all of this is provided by volunteers from associations in Germany. Supporting this work is the aim of the "Ukraine Assistance Program." We want to support this commitment of the associations with grants of up to 5,000 Euros, both quickly and unbureaucratically.
