In-person assistance offline 
We are working on a plan to offer in-person assistance, where volunteers can meet with people and provide support directly. 


Our volunteers are currently responding in chat, contributing to the development of services and helping to find solutions to various problems.

By becoming a volunteer, you not only give your time and expertise but also receive a multitude of personal and professional benefits that can enrich your life in countless ways. Join us in making a positive impact and discovering the rewards of volunteering today!


Refufin goals 


Refufin volunteers will provide support and assistance to Ukrainian and Russian speakers who have fled the war. We want to make sure that they receive support and assistance from the Finnish authorities. 


Refufin volunteers are capable of recognizing their own abilities, and wellbeing and evaluating their own performance mindfully while volunteering.
