The donations collected with this activity will go to Refugees Welcome.
Between 3.000 and 7.000 asylum seekers come to Denmark every year (spontaneous asylum seekers), about 300 are unaccompanied minors (older children who come to Denmark alone).
The highest numbers of refugees come from Syria, Afghanistan, Russia, Somalia, Serbia, Iran and Iraq – but the numbers varies every year. The chance of being granted asylum varies a lot from year to year and between the different countries.
Refugees Welcome is a small humanitarian organisation. They provide free legal counselling and assistance to asylum seekers, and at the same time they try to ensure the rights of refugees and inform the public of the conditions for refugees in Denmark.
“Human rights are for us all, no matter which legal status we might have”.
