After the Russian attack on Ukraine, the Waldeck-Frankenberg district is providing humanitarian aid for the people from the war region in coordination with the state and federal authorities. On this page, the district provides relevant information on the topic.
IMPORTANT: The district is currently receiving numerous queries about the current processing status of applications of various kinds. We would like to point out that due to the high workload in the district administration, the processing of applications is unfortunately taking more time than usual. We therefore ask you to be patient and, if possible, to refrain from asking questions about the current processing status. The staff are working under high pressure to complete the processes as quickly as possible. As soon as this is the case for your case, we will inform you immediately.
Thank you for your understanding!

Help for women in emergency situations
Many private persons, volunteers and aid organisations offer help to refugees. Unfortunately, there are also people who take advantage of the emergency situation. There is help and support here!
