The Löbau Welcome Committee introduces itself to you. Under “Wibü Löbau” many Organisations and Clubs in partnership with the corresponding Authorities have come together to engage in work assisting asylum seekers in and around Löbau. Currently there are opportunities for asylum seekers in both asylum seeking homes in Löbau as well as in the general town and district of Löbau.
In actual fact it is expressly wished, that the opportunities are not only for asylum seekers but also available to anyone in Löbau who wants to take part. There are many areas one can get involved in. Help with German language courses, individual funding or lending support to cafés – there is a place for everyone.
The Löbau Welcome Committee came about in 2015 after the huge asylum seekers crisis in Germany and Europe. At this time many asylum seekers were housed in Homes and also in decentralised housing. A huge variety of offers/opportunities were brought into life from many helpers. As a result there quickly arose the need for a central, regular gathering of all involved – thus the Löbau Welcome Committee came into being. It is held once every month for discussions and the seeking of advice.
