Assistance for people in Ukraine and refugees in Berlin

by Stiftung Zukunft Berlin
Berlin, Germany

The Stiftung Zukunft Berlin sees itself as a forum for civic co-responsibility. Our commitment is based on the conviction that such active responsibility on the part of civil society is an essential pillar of liberal democracy. We are committed to cohesion in the city, in the region and in Europe; that is why we strengthen the constructive forces of society that are oriented towards the common good.

Hundreds of committed citizens are involved in the Stiftung Zukunft Berlin for the common good. Many of them are currently active with their respective organisations or in private initiatives to organise help for the people in the Ukrainian war zone and for those who have been forced to flee by the war. We would like to make their commitment visible with this compilation.

Please support their work according to your possibilities!

Cultural Train Berlin-Breslau in Humanitarian Action

Created as part of our Wrocław-Berlin 2016 project, the Kulturzug is already in its seventh year of transporting people interested in culture back and forth between Berlin and Wrocław. Now, until further notice, it is on a DAILY humanitarian mission from Wrocław to Cottbus and Berlin. The journey is FREE for Ukrainian citizens, as is the onward journey in Germany.

The team needs support to take care of the people from Ukraine:
– Volunteers with Russian/Ukrainian language skills who can help on selected days on these trips. Please send us your CV by e-mail at
– Please send monetary donations to the Deutsch-Polnische Gesellschaft Berlin e.V. with the earmarking “Kulturzug/Ukraine” and details of the donation receipt.

Initiative Berliner Kulturfördergesetz: Report own possibilities for help

Several co-initiators of our Berlin Forum, including the Landesmusikrat Berlin, the Paritätische Berlin, associations in the EKBO and cultural workers at ver.di, are part of an alliance of associations and societies that are campaigning for a Berlin Cultural Promotion Act. In order to better coordinate the numerous offers of help from Berlin cultural workers for refugees from Ukraine, the initiative has created a questionnaire.
