The Berliner Philharmoniker and its chief conductor Kirill Petrenko have been ambassadors for UN refugee aid since 2021 – the first organisation to receive this status and to be part of the UN Refugee Agency’s “Circle of Friends”.

UNO-Flüchtlingshilfe has been working for more than 40 years as a national partner of the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) for people on the run. It collects donations for UNHCR’s worldwide operations as well as for projects for refugees in Germany, and it informs the public about flight and the causes of flight. 

UNO-Flüchtlingshilfe and the Berliner Philharmoniker are united in their concern to open up the prospect of a secure future for people on the run, in which they can once again take their fate into their own hands. The Berliner Philharmoniker support through individual campaigns and long-term projects with events and fundraising appeals, for example in context of our popular lunch and carte blanche concerts.

We would be delighted if you would join us on the path of this partnership and support this important project with your donations.

#hilftsicher: Appeal by the Berliner Philharmoniker

Around the world today, more than 114 million people are on the run. And the numbers continue to rise. In this context of so many global crises, the work of the UNO-Flüchtlingshilfe, the German partner of the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR), is more important than ever. Many people worry about the effectiveness of donations. With the UNHCR’s mandate to ensure the efficient use of resources (“hilft sicher”), you can rest assured that your donation truly makes a difference. The Berliner Philharmoniker shares this commitment.

As a partner of UNO-Flüchtlingshilfe, we therefore make a targeted appeal for donations – in our wide-ranging communication through our website, newsletter and social media presence, but also at our end-of-season Waldbühne concert, where audience members are encouraged to make a donation. You can help too.

There are many ways to support the UNO-Flüchtlingshilfe and thus protect refugees and help them make a new start.
