Who do we help?
The Wereldhuis is the center of information and advice, education and culture, for refugees out of procedure, people without a residence permit: People with few rights and who looking for new perspectives. In the Wereldhuis they can get advice from our counselors or join an activity, to build up their life pro-actively. Most of the activities at the Wereldhuis are offered and taught by volunteers, who are undocumented as well. The activities are free of charge.

How to get help
Everyone who is in an emergency situation or needs to be heard can contact our pastors and social workers for a personal interview.
