Wir zusammen! (Us Together!)
Wir zusammen! is an initiative to welcome refugees and people with an international background to Oderberg and the region. Although Oderberg is friendly, we know that it can be challenging to arrive in a new country and region, especially when lacking language skills and German bureaucratic know-how.
We want to see to it that everyone here feels welcome and have what they need to settle here. Diversity enriches our city and region; we would like to see more people of diverse backgrounds settling here.
We work together with the refugee center in Oderberg, the city of Oderberg, as well as engaged citizens.

Winter Holiday Gifts
We collect gifts for children in refugee housing, and pack small new year’s gifts for the adults.
