Safety and home.

When refugees flee from their home country, children and sick people suffer the most. Lean on us works with international aid agencies and is dedicated to the unbureaucratic and not-for-profit support of refugees in special circumstances.

Individuals and families seeking refuge need humanitarian aid until they reach safety. Lean on us supports them as a non-profit organisation with financial aid for food, clothes, medication, lawyers and heating supplies. We do however believe that mental support is also very important. We support our refugees multiple times a day through personal contact, talking about worries and discussing potential options.

Together with international aid agencies, we focus on difficult individual circumstances, such as unaccompanied minors, sick people and single mothers with children.
