  • Bridging Borders: Cultivating Connections in Canton Bern
    The canton of Bern (Health and Social Directorate) is housing almost 8000 people which have left the Ukraine. We are offering shelter and food and some minor programs e.g. language.
    To get in contact and to communicate with these people was and is not easy. That is the reason why we are continuing to do a lot of communication work for them as well as for the population of the canton.
