No one chooses to be a refugee

Every minute eight people leave everything behind to escape war, persecution or terror.

If you and your family were in danger, what would you do? Stay and risk death or torture? Or chance everything at the hands of human smugglers?

For many refugees the choice is between the horrific or something worse.

You do have a choice

Many refugees have found a safe haven in Central Europe but need help to restart their lives. You can help refugees in many ways... learn the language, find a flat, and navigate their way in a new country.
