Information for helpers, volunteers and refugees in the municipality of Schermbeck

Thank you very much for already helping, wishing to help or wishing to inform yourself here.

Mike Rexforth - Bürgermeister der Gemeinde Schermbeck

Your commitment is overwhelming. As citizens of our municipality, you have cordially welcomed many refugees that have come to us. For this, I would like to thank you sincerely.

We have set up this platform to support you and to provide information to those who have come seeking help. Here, we would like to offer suggestions, assistance and provide contact information so that you can use your time and support as effectively as possible. In addition, we hope to answer all questions regarding the current refugee support here in Schermbeck.

This platform was also created for refugees and asylum seekers themselves – to answer frequently asked questions, provide contact information and an overview of the most important laws and places to go. Therefore, these pages are also available in Arabic and English.

With this platform, we wish to connect anyone willing to help, honor their commitment and facilitate access to important information.

Let us take on this challenge together!

Sincerely, Mike Rexforth
Mayor of Schermbeck
