People before borders
Boat Refugee Foundation wants to make a difference in places where it is needed most. We offer concrete, practical emergency aid to refugees with our team of volunteers. Donate or volunteer with us and make a change!
What we do
We provide care to the thousands of people who are forced to flee and are stuck on the edges of Europe. In Eastern Europe and Greece, we give them access to medical and psychosocial care. We also campaign for a fairer asylum policy.
Our medical team consisting of doctors, nurses and psychologists offers emergency care from our mobile clinic.Read more
