We, the „Friends of Refugees“ in Gera, are a network of professionals, volunteers, refugees and people interested, or involved in Human Rights.

We show solidarity with the refugees living in Gera. We want to support them in their differing  life's circumstances and help make it possible for them to better participate in society. Beyond that, we want to sensitize the citizens of Gera about the plight of the refugees, thereby reducing their prejudice towards the refugees and raising the tolerance and acceptance of the refugees in our city.

Our goal is to better the living conditions of the refugees and at the same time establish a welcoming culture in our city.
