What we do

What do the refugees and asylum seekers based in Bernau need most? How can help be organized quickly and smoothly? These are the challenges set by the association Bernauer Flüchtlingshilfe. It sees itself as the contact point and coordinator for all offers of help from the members of the association and the people of Bernau. It intends to establish a network, which also includes and coordinates the aid of both the Evangelic and Catholic Church communities as well as the associations of Bernau.

At the moment we are focusing on the following main areas:

  • helping the refugees and asylum seekers with contacting authorities
  • offering German courses (organisation of lessons and supply with teaching resources)
  • programme of leisure activities (sports, culture, excursions, etc.)
