Help in Oosterhout
Due to the situation in Ukraine, many people are fleeing their country. Oosterhout will probably also receive a number of refugees. But shelter alone is not enough. We want to help and support these people with everything they need. What exactly the question will look like is not entirely clear at the moment. Keep an eye on our website for more information!
Through years of experience, Oosterhoutvoorelkaar can play a role in the connection between volunteers and the requests for help. Oosterhoutvoorelkaar can also support you in carrying out your help action. Do you already have good ideas to offer help? Do you also want to help yourself when it is necessary? It doesn't matter if you have big plans, take initiative or if you can only help with a small gesture.
If you are also ready to help, as soon as necessary, place your offer of help on our website. As soon as the request for help is known, we will contact you!
Fundraising & Humanitarian Aid
Collection campaigns are taking place throughout the Netherlands. Most in demand are medical supplies, thermal clothing, sleeping gear and power banks. These actions are often organized locally, by a person or local authority. It is therefore best to find them through local media, or through the current help questions overview .
Make sure that the well-intentioned help is really appropriate. The emergency aid agencies indicate, for example, that sending items is not useful when people are on the run. Here you will find an overview of what is most needed, and where you can send it.
Offer practical help by hosting Ukrainian refugees.
- Host families are matched to refugees via Take care BnB . After it turns out to be a match, the refugees will stay for 3 months. Extension of this is possible if both parties agree.
