Ukraine war: Our offers of help

In our project for Ukraine aid in Jena, we have made it our task to help the helpers, i.e. all those who are committed to helping the refugees here in Jena. For this purpose, we offer events for networking and further education and provide practical support. On this page you will also find our info-pinboard with lots of information and the possibility to apply for funding for your projects. Brand new: We also arrange sponsorships between people who are new to Jena and those who want to help with their arrival.

Help coordination via our platform

Our new engagement platform 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?

Informations, help and more

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!

Our donation fund: Ukraine - Jena helps!
