Who we are

We are a group from Hannover whose goal it is to welcome refugees in Germany. We establish contact between supporters and refugees, organize joint activities and convey refugees in cooperation with "Flüchtlinge Willkommen" to normal housing situations.

We will bring You together!

Get Support
