Refugee network HammeHilft!
The Network HammeHilft! is an association made up of members from several congregations, non-profit-making organisations and interested citizens and is very active across the district Bochum-Hamme.
The initiative maintains a clothing distribution point, which is open once a month (opening hours see below) and is active in assisting kids with their homework. The network arranges godparents and actively provides recreational activities.
HammeHilft! has been organising the meeting-café since February 2016. The idea was to bring citizens from the neighborhood and refugees together to talk, play games, listen to (live-) music, have a tea or a coffee, and in short: to have fun together. Thereby it is of special importance for us to show that integration starts with the little things and grows from there.
