Ukraine war: Our offers of help

As in the “long summer of migration” and the Corona pandemic, we are particularly challenged as a centre for civic engagement in the current situation. Our goal is to help the helpers. To this end, we have already started various measures and are collecting our offers of help in the following overview.

Hotline for helpers: +49 151 50430724

The hotline is available from Monday to Friday from 10:00 - 12:00 and from 14:00 - 18:00.

We have set up a helper hotline to relieve the city administration, which first and foremost takes care of the accommodation of the arrivals. The volunteers on the hotline provide information about the next steps and look for answers to unusual questions. They strictly adhere to the information that the city has compiled on its Ukraine sub-site or draw on the expertise and network of the community foundation.

Hotline for refugees in Ukrainian and Russian: +49 151 50413965

The hotline is available from Monday to Friday from 10:00 - 12:00 and from 14:00 - 18:00.

This hotline will - just like the German hotline - forward information from the city's website and verified offers from facilities in Jena.

Help coordination via our platform

Our new engagement platform Engagiert-in-jena.de brings together people interested in engagement and people or institutions in need of help. Hundreds of people have already registered to help, so we have a lot of manpower to offer!

You are an initiative and need: Drivers, translators or other helpers?

You have taken in refugees yourself and need help, for example with visits to the authorities?

Do you have your own capacities and would like to help?

Donations in kind and Co.

Due to the many requests we have received, we have set up a new clothing store for refugees and people in need in the Alte Feuerwache, Saalbahnhofstr. 15, Haus 1, 07743 Jena. The clothing store is open until the end of June from Mon - Fri from 10 am - 5 pm.

Further information: The best up-to-date overview on topics such as donations in kind, accommodation, offers and the like with a translation into Ukrainian is currently offered by the city of Jena. You can't find the information you are looking for there? Please feel free to contact our helper hotline!
