Abstract

 

House of Helsinki members are educated and experienced specialists in the field of in integration, social and healthcare. Due to the war in Ukraine, we have formed a team of 40 volunteers that coordinate Ukrainian refugees to travel from Poland to Finland. Our main objective is that Ukrainian asylum seekers arrive in Finland safely and that they are granted access to support networks which are already available in Finland.

Goals/Objectives

Ideal outcomes of the Refufin project:

  • Ukrainian asylum seekers arrive in Finland safely and are granted access to asylum cycle

  • Ukrainians that intent to stay in Finland will receive support integrating into Finnish society

  • Ukrainian asylum seekers get needed personal guidance and support through the process of applying for asylum status or temporary protection in their own language. Read more at Migri.
