CONTRIBUTE NOW

HOW CAN I CONTRIBUTE WITH TIME AND EFFORT RIGHT NOW?

  • Since Friday, October 16th, the majority of asylum seekers will no longer register at the National Police Immigration Service at Tøyen. A brand new Reception Centre has opened in Råde, Østfold. Alongside E6, at “Ankomstsenter Råde” as many as 1.000 asylum seekers may be catered for at a time. The Centre has amenities such as bedding and food. If you would like to help as a volunteer, consider joining Refugees Welcome to Østfold.
  • If you are a health care worker (doctor, nurse, etc.), join our Facebook group: Helsepersonell REFUGEE WELCOME TO NORWAY
  • Students in school can contribute via a designated group: Refugees Welcome to School. The pressure in the reception system means that children refugees without guardians and other refugees might stay for weeks and months in transit. They receive no educational services and often have nothing to occupy their time with. This group is for school students who want to contribute by giving them the opportunity to learn something, meet Norwegians, and something to think about besides a difficult past and an unsure future.
  • People have started collecting donated items in many places all over Norway. Volunteers may be needed to help collect clothes and other items from people who are not able to deliver them to a drop-off point themselves, or to transport donated items to the nearest asylum reception centre. Join your local Facebook group and find out about local activities there.
