About the volunteering opportunity

In the "Leipzig helps Ukraine" group, a volunteer is involved with a Ukrainian, Russian-speaking family that is currently waiting to receive the cost approval for an apartment.

Your Tasks

If this cost transfer comes, the family needs a contact, which can help with the removal organization. It is a matter of organizing a transport or the move (with the help of the group "Leipzig helps Ukraine" and other available networks) and to coordinate small errands.

Should the assumption of costs not occur, the family needs support in the search for housing. We are happy to help you with helpful information, websites etc.

What's needed

For this volunteering opportunity, advanced German skills are required.

Languages:

  • Russian (fluent) for communication with family,
  • German (fluent) for communication with the outside
     
  • Both physically and mentally resilient,
  • Good demarcation skills in stressful situations,
  • Open and respectful interaction with people,
  • Organizational skills

Time required

Discussed individually

It is mainly bridging the absence of a volunteer already working for the family from the group "Leipzig helps Ukraine" (LHU) from the period 29.06. - 01.08.2022

Important notice

You can contact us at any time and we will accompany you in your voluntary work.

In the project "Ehrenamtssupport" you also have the opportunity to receive free group or individual support in the design of your voluntary work, so that you can design it in such a way that you feel comfortable with it and, in case of questions or problems, get space to find solutions for you. It is especially important that you, as a volunteer, receive help when supporting people in stressful and/or existential situations. More info on the homepage: http://www.ehrenamt-support.de/
