From refugees to role models
More than one million refugees have reached Germany since 2014. Arriving in the country, however, is as much the beginning of a journey as it is an end. IsraAID’s team focuses on responding to trauma, building resilience and empowerment, and supporting refugees’ integration into German society.
This initiative sought to answer the acute need for more masks while challenging preconceived notions that refugees solely receive services, rather than provide them. By reaching out and producing masks for others, refugees and asylum seekers are able to give back to those around them and create a meaningful platform for interaction between often-separate communities.
