The Berlin City Mission has taken over the "Welcome Hall Land Berlin" at the main train station. Refugees from Ukraine who want to stay in the city are welcomed here and then forwarded. We are still urgently looking for volunteers with Russian or Ukrainian language skills for this. A little German is also a prerequisite.
Activity: The tasks are varied and will be discussed very specifically with you on site. For example, you greet people, assist with food distribution, show where children can play a moment or accompany people to buses next to the tent.
What we want: We are looking for people who speak Russian or Ukrainian. For this, a simple level of understanding is sufficient.
Requirements: For this volunteer position, you must be at least 18 years old. You are vaccinated against the Corona virus or recovered from it (a maximum of 90 days ago) or bring a daily negative test from an official testing center for each assignment. In the hall, FFP2 masks are mandatory for all full-time and volunteer employees.
Expected attitude: They are convinced that every human being is given an inalienable dignity. Other religions and worldviews you are respectful. A personal connection to the Christian faith is an advantage, but not a prerequisite.
Where? In the large tent on the Washingtonplatz at Berlin Central Station (exit towards the government district). The container 8 when you come from the train station you have to turn right around the tent. It is the container with the windows.
When: There are different shifts throughout the day and night. Especially for nights we are still urgently looking for volunteers.
Time commitment: at least 3 hours, gladly longer.
