About us

Help in Change is a multinational non-profit association based in Stockholm. It was founded in March 2022 as a horizontal network of individuals who wanted to help Ukrainian refugees in Sweden.

We are driven by a profound mission –to help Ukrainian refugees integrate into Swedish society. Our purpose is rooted in fostering a sense of belonging, providing essential resources, and offering support to those in need.

In the face of upheaval and uncertainty, we strive to be a beacon of stability and support for Ukrainian refugees in Sweden. Our commitment goes beyond mere assistance. We are dedicated to creating an environment where each individual feels accepted, understood, and empowered to rebuild their lives in a new country.
