As many people as never before flee from war, environmental destruction, hunger! The politics of the Bundesregierung relays on walling-off!

We support the reconstruction of Kobanê/Syria. There the Kurds build-up a democratic self-government. And here we support the refugees accommodation “Haus der Solidarität” at the vacation and recreational facility Truckenthal, a refugees accommodation of a special kind. The Kurdish refugees elect democratic structures and manage the accommodation together with the house direction and population.

Carry out practical help and solidarity, which depends on mutual learning, e.g. language courses German-Kurdish/Kurdish-German; Medical treatment and training of first aiders; gathering of clothes; dialogues with the population; women’s meetings, events.. Highlight is the opening ceremony on the 6th of August of the “Haus der Solidarität”
