HWR Berlin is supporting Ukraine

The events in Ukraine are causing tremendous suffering for the people affected, whether in the country itself or on the run. The HWR Berlin encourages all members of the university to actively help and is compiling opportunities for commitment.

Where and how can I help?

Who and what is now needed and where? Numerous aid organizations and initiatives are collecting donations or helping refugees after their arrival. You can find many ways to help on the websites of Rundfunk Berlin Brandenburg (rbb) and the Tagesspiegel:

Help now and get involved

Students, lecturers and staff at the HWR Berlin are involved in voluntary work or keep in touch with people in Ukraine. On this page we would like to connect organizations, initiatives and more spontaneous actions with people who want to help Ukraine now. If you would like to join the workgroup "Support for Ukraine", please write to: ukraine(at)hwr-berlin.de

The volunteer organisations use digital tools to register their own commitment. In this way, they can see where and when helpers are needed.

On this website, donation organisations from Berlin enter their current need for donations in kind. These can then be reported and taken directly to the place of use, for example to Berlin's main railway station, the central bus station or to the temporary shelters.

The Tüftelakademie's picture dictionary is helpful for everyday life - not only with refugee children. It can support helpers to communicate even without language skills or to teach a basic vocabulary.
