We run entirely on enthusiastic volunteers and we are always on the lookout for talented and driven individuals. Help us to mobilize resources for immediate and direct emergency food & hygiene support for refugee communities.


Help us to mobilize resources for immediate and direct emergency food & hygiene support for refugee communities.​ Any amount, big or small can make a difference. Did you know that due to the current transaction rates, even the equivalent of one dinner in central Europe or North America can provide a family with their basic groceries for a week? 


Alternatively, you now can become a sponsoring member of United Hands for Refugees e.V. and thereby support our work long-term!


Do you work for an initiative that is dedicated to a similar cause? Is the fate of refugees in our society important to you? Do you own a shop, a café, or do you create art and would like to spread solidarity and raise awareness with your customers? Reach out to us for opportunities of collaboration!
