Thousands of people around the world leave their homes every day to seek refuge elsewhere.

It was only the conflict in the Ukraine that made us, like many other people in Germany, aware of how much these people depend on support when fleeing. Helpbus has set itself the task of using vehicles and transport to support the people affected in their escape to safety.

Our purpose is to help those who are politically, racially or religiously persecuted, for refugees and displaced persons. The purpose of the statute is realized in particular through the support and assistance for refugees according to the Geneva Refugee Convention, for the politically persecuted according to the Basic Law and for other refugees and migrants who need protection and assistance; and promotion and implementation of measures.

Our focus is to provide fugitives with transportation. This can be the provision of minibuses or the organization of secured tours. We try to start where we can make the greatest possible impact with our resources.

We are currently putting all our resources into helping the people of Ukraine. At the beginning we organized bus trips to the Ukrainian border. In this way we have already been able to bring more than 1,600 people to safety who would otherwise have been left behind.

Due to the high dynamics of the situations on site, we always try to adapt our actions to the needs on site. In the meantime, our focus is on supporting the people in southern Ukraine. In cooperation with the TMR Flüchtingshilfe Berlin e.V. and the Side by Side Foundation in Odessa, we organize means of transport for evacuations within Ukraine, as well as secure onward transport from western Romania.

You will receive documentation and current information on the progress of our work if you register for our community free of charge with your e-mail address.

Donations are used to support people fleeing. We use donations specifically for the use of means of transport for people. This can be diesel costs, registration fees, toll fees or driver costs. But it can also be about the purchase of vehicles to make them available in crisis areas.

We are a small team and do the work in our free time because we want to keep the administrative burden as low as possible. Much more we try to support our local partners in the best possible way, so that every donation arrives where it is really needed.

We will publish detailed information on the use of the donations in our annual report on this website. If you have any questions or would like detailed information in advance, please write to us at info (@) helpbus.eu – we will be happy to answer your questions.

We are a small team of nine people who run this organization alongside their main job. Because we don’t want to lose our focus on helping, we currently have to keep our marketing measures to a minimum for reasons of time. For this reason, we have decided to regularly inform interested people via our own community channels.

We have decided against actively using social media channels every day. We don’t want quick attention through sensational news to generate quick donations. We are looking for people who have a lasting interest in our work and who want to support us with full conviction.

Sustainability instead of sensation. That’s why we accompany a large part of our work with videos, which we also make available to our community at regular intervals. In this way we want to ensure that information has been validated and verified and does not result in an overabundance of produced media that would currently only impede the actual progress of our goals.

Simply enter your e-mail address and you will be kept regularly informed about all the latest news. We also expand our website at irregular intervals. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact info (@) helpbus.eu.

One thing is important: We are a small organization that was only founded in February 2022. If you have any questions or suggestions for improvement, please let us know.

The Helpbus e.V. started three days after the start of the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine as an initiative by Nils Neumann. In a merger of renowned German bus companies, more than 1600 people were brought from the Ukrainian border to safe accommodation in Germany within a very short time.

We are convinced that people seeking protection will continue to need more and more help in the future.

After an intensive initial phase, we decided to continue! We are working on helping the people in Ukraine and building a sustainable organization in order to continue to help other refugees seeking protection in the future.
