Welcome to the RHEB (Refugee Help at the European Borders) Foundation – the starting point for anyone who wants to contribute to a more humane situation for our refugee friends near the borders, especially the children.

We are a rapidly growing group that since the fall of 2015 has grown into 1800 members. The reason the foundation exists is because right now there is the largest number of refugees in Europe that there has ever been for the past seventy years, as well as realizing that it has created an extreme situation which does not require speculation or discussion – but action. Some issues are being solved by governments and large traditional organizations, and others are being fixed by entrepreneurial drives with disruptive efforts created just as much inside as outside of the box. That is the kind of group you have found here with us!

Specifically, RHEB acts within three humanitarian operations: partially traditional volunteering, but more so by sending help to the locals as well as their infrastructure. In the case of the latter, it is more important to deliver a more “sustainable humanitarian effect” (SHE), which is a more durable result for refugees and their children. Regardless of the operation we act in the regions where the situation is most acute, and make efforts where careful analysis has proven is most necessary.

Since the start of the group in 2015 we have delivered twenty efforts in the form of trucks filled with over sixty tons of refugee supplies all over the Baltics – for instance Slovenia, Croatia and Serbia, and Kalymnos, Chios, Lesbos, Idomeni, and most recently Syria and Iraqi Kurdistan. We have installed plumbing for showers and toilets, obtained local warehouses, contributed with money for food and much more. Upon estimation, we have in multiple ways acted as support for over 70.000 refugees, and want to help many more.

By reaching a great humanitarian effect with very little resources, we must be doing something right. We believe it is our duty to make the most out of our opportunity – which is exactly what we are doing. On the path ahead, we have made efforts like a sewing program for Yazidi women, a food program which will make six times as much halal-food for every dollar spent compared to equal help-organizations, a mobile school for children and slightly further ahead, distance healthcare.

So, what is necessary for our efforts to be successful? Our experience tells us that it is not about a few heroes quitting their jobs and giving away all their savings to make a difference. It is through the phrase “No one can do everything, but everyone can do something” that we have seen the most change. That is why our mission is to make sure that the “everyone” in this statement will become as many as possible (like you and the people you know) and that the “something” becomes more useful (our process).

Then what can you do to help? We have about ten different “missions” for you to choose from if you’d like to make a difference. Of course, we need money and donations (if you can, transfer your donation to BG 5122-8138), but we also need your help and your skills just as much. Contact us today to find out what we could do for each other.

And hey, thanks for caring! ♡♡♡
