Thank you for joining our effort to support BiPoC people fleeing Ukraine.
You are volunteering in a joint initiative of Each One Teach One (EOTO) e.V., International Women's Space, Initiative of Black People in Germany (ISD) and Migrationsrat Berlin e.V. By collaborating Berlin Arrival Support and other organizations and initiatives, we connect BIPoC refugees fleeing the war in Ukraine with housing, advice, meals, legal resources and information so everyone can make the best possible decisions for themselves. We place special emphasis on keeping families and refuge groups together and counteracting the effects of racism that BIPoC individuals may have experienced while fleeing war.
There are two locations of this project you can volunteer in:
- Berlin central station (Hauptbahnhof) for first arrival support, e.g. providing them with basic supplies at the station, assisting them to travel further, handing people the most important info or directing them to different places in Berlin for further support.

- CUSBU Project Office, which is a community support office for matching people with accommodations, assisting with paperwork, accompanying to government offices, help with accessing legal advice, warm meals and more. Sign up under: http://tiny.cc/VolunteerMS74
At both locations you will be briefed and supervised, so don't worry if this is your first time supporting in an emergency response and social support project.
Just pick the location, date and time that suits you best to volunteer and we'll be happy to work with you!
Please find further instruction on completion of the form. And again: Thank you!
