Donation campaign for new Soli bus

Dear supporters,

A request on our own behalf: As you know, we have been providing direct and voluntary humanitarian aid since the beginning of the large-scale invasion of Ukraine in 2022 by transporting supplies directly to local organisations there. These are partners we know well and who communicate to us what is most urgently needed. In this way, the aid arrives exactly where it is needed. On the return journey from Ukraine, we make it possible for refugees to leave and continue their journey. We do this mainly with a van that two people from Berlin bought second-hand and made available for this purpose (in the early days and in individual cases, we used buses from other supporters).

However, after more than 20 journeys and 60,000 kilometres travelled, the main bus used is increasingly in need of repair. The other vehicles are not always available. It is important to us that as many donations as possible reach our local partners as humanitarian aid. But to cover expensive repairs, we would have to use the donations received or raise additional funds.

To continue our work, we therefore need a suitable, preferably new van with at least 8 seats and a large loading area –  as soon as possible. The ideal model costs around €40,000. Our umbrella organisation (Roter Stern Berlin 2012 e.V.) is thankfully financing a large part of the costs and is prepared to cover the running costs in the future. They will share the bus with us. Our initiative still has to raise 10,000 Euros.

We need your help for this! Please donate so that we can continue our work! Every euro helps!
