The war in Ukraine has forced millions of people to flee. Many of them are also looking for a safe place to stay in Germany. That’s why we are chartering buses to bring 50 Ukrainian women and children each from Warsaw to Düsseldorf. Here we are cooperating with Refugees Welcome >fluechtlinge-willkommen-in-duesseldorf.de and the City of Düsseldorf, which take care of the reception of the refugees.
Women and children from Ukraine find too few transport possibilities to where they can get shelter, care and help. Capacity bottlenecks at central contact points like Warsaw or Berlin have led to an additional crisis within the crisis. Experiences in recent weeks also show that unfamiliar transportation options pose a great danger, especially for women.
With the initiative Shelter Shuttle, we bring Ukrainian women and children safely from Warsaw to Düsseldorf. For each trip we need at least 3,600 euros. The first bus transport for 50 Ukrainian women and children arrived in Düsseldorf on April 9! Now we’re collecting for the next transport.
Every donation is welcome and will be used directly where it will have a quick and visible effect. Please support us! Any funds we do not spend on the buses will be donated directly to Refugees Welcome >fluechtlinge-willkommen-in-duesseldorf.de.

Obwohl Russlands Angriffe auf kritische Infrastrukturen und Zivilisten weitergehen, kehren derzeit viele Flüchtlinge in Teile des Landes zurück, die als weniger gefährdet gelten. Aus diesem Grund haben wir unseren Schwerpunkt auf die Finanzierung von medizinischen Hilfsgütern und anderen lebenswichtigen Gütern sowie von Projekten wie Trauma-Camps für ukrainische Kinder verlagert.
Although Russia’s attacks of critical infrastructure and civilians continue, many refugees are currently returning to parts of the country perceived as less exposed to the aggression. For this reason, we have shifted our focus to funding medical supplies and other essential goods, as well as projects such as camps providing trauma counselling for Ukrainian children.
Please contribute what you can to our partner organization (information in German only) Ukraine-Hilfe Göggingen e.V. Here you will find all donation account details.
Every donation makes a difference!
