'Help is overwhelming'

Schermafbeelding 2022-05-02 om 14.56.33.png


De Koepel, a former prison in Breda, has been a semi-permanent shelter since March 2022.created for people from Ukraine. Together with volunteers in and around Breda, we have transformed the cells of the old Koepel prison into a nice, clean home in a very short time.

We work together with the Municipality of Breda and, together with a number of other partners, create an efficient, sustainable and safe environment. We offer social added value, for example in the areas of (labor) participation, local investments and housing.


The first crisis shelter for refugees coming to the Netherlands is arranged nationally. From the first shelter in the Jaarbeurs in Utrecht, we determine which municipalities have room and can offer a safe place to live.

Ukrainian refugees who arrive in the Netherlands and do not have a place to sleep with friends or family can go to the national first emergency shelter in the Jaarbeurs in Utrecht. Refugees who register here will be referred to a reception location in one of the municipalities where there is room. An attempt is made to take the preferences of Ukrainian refugees into account.

Aid for Ukraine

For months we have been seeing images of the war in Ukraine every day: images that make a deep impression on all of us. This evokes an enormous feeling of solidarity with the residents of Ukraine and many refugees. Heart-warming, concrete initiatives arise in our city from the feeling of solidarity and togetherness.


We receive many questions from residents of Breda who have raised money or want to donate items.
