Help that is urgently needed

Support for the people of Ukraine

War is raging in the middle of Europe: Russian troops are attacking Ukraine. The consequences are death, destruction and unimaginable suffering that leaves us stunned.

We at Märtens would like to help the victims of war and the refugees and therefore donate 1,000 € to Deutschland hilft e.V. The alliance comprises more than 20 German organizations, including Arbeiter-Samariter-Bund, Arbeiterwohlfahrt international, World Vision Deutschland and many more.

Any form of help - whether voluntary commitment, monetary donations or donations in kind - is welcome. According to estimates, more than 600,000 people, mainly women and children, have already fled Ukraine and are seeking protection in neighboring countries. In Ukraine itself, the situation is also dramatic: the infrastructure has been destroyed in many places, and hospitals have also been damaged. The supply of electricity, drinking water and food is uncertain, especially in the embattled regions. If you would also like to support the people, you can easily donate online here:

In many regions of Germany, people and associations are joining forces to help the refugees. Find out individually on site which donations in kind are currently needed or how you can get involved directly.
