Who are we

Aid Ukraine Denmark is an NGO and a network of volunteers that help Ukrainians who have fled the war. We are a team of diverse people who use our professional skills to make a difference for those in need.

How were we established?

Aid Ukraine Denmark was established in a very short time due to the urgent, unfortunate situation that Ukrainians are fleeing the war. We are an organisation of voluntary forces with one single agenda and purpose – a humanitarian duty.

How do we operate?

Aid Ukraine Denmark coordinates various volunteers who want to help the Ukrainians settle in Denmark. We assist with things like English coaching, job opportunities, job-matching consultancy and social activities.

We are a supplementary help to the integration work done by Danish public institutions, and we adjust our activities based on current needs.

Why did we emerge?

The purpose of Aid Ukraine Denmark is to help Ukrainians feel safe, protected and valued in Denmark. We specifically take care of Ukrainians in Denmark and leave other relief aid for established organisations such as Red Cross and Doctors without Borders.

What is the need?

Many Ukrainians have arrived in Denmark. Jobs, social needs, and language skills are the most common needs. We are committed to assisting as many Ukrainians as possible to temporarily integrate into Danish society through social activities and networks and fully-fledged participation in the labour market.
