For people fleeing the war🇺🇦 🇫🇮
We offer online assistance from our volunteers, who are available to answer any questions and provide support remotely. The chat can be found in the bottom right corner of this page.
Materials and information
We provide access to resources and information that can help refugees better understand their rights and their services. This includes translated materials and online resources.
In-person assistance offline (currently working on, planned by 2024)
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 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.
With the help of REFUFIN volunteers and partners
we safely transported 3000+
Ukrainian temporary protection or asylum seekers
from Poland to Finland, Estonia and Latvia.
