About us

Auxilium Profugi (lat., “helping refugees”) is an association founded in the course of the war in Ukraine, which has set itself the task of helping refugees. We have been a registered association since April 22nd and we expect to be recognized as a nonprofit.

The impetus for founding the association came largely from our current chairman, Lars Gossard. His impressions of the conditions on the border with Ukraine, which he traveled to alone with a full of relief supplies made him realize that more needs to be done – and the rest of the founding members agreed with him.

The foundation of the association took place almost immediately, the registration was also surprisingly quick – great praise here to “the bureaucracy” that has shown itself at its best. A bank account could also be set up immediately, so we are formally able to act.
