The Amigos response to COVID-19

We’ve never been in such a crisis - no one has - and we made the decision that Amigos will take a role in the fight against COVID-19. At the beginning we knew that we have more than 170 enthusiastic, young volunteers and we do speak the language of children, especially the ones who are in an isolated and uncertain situation. So utilizing our five and a half year experience we provide two different programs: Amigos Online for kids who stay in hospitals, and Amigos Extra for high school students who are in need of a friend to play and study with. 

Amigos Online

Immediately after the introduction of nationwide visit bans, we redesigned our activities. In this new situation we continue our hospital Amigo visits online. Chronically ill kids now need the Amigos more than ever before, thus we are trying our best to help them during the pandemic.

Amigos Extra

Amigos Extra provides free one to one language classes (English, German, Italian, Spanish, French) for disadvantaged students, held by the university student volunteers of Amigos. The classes are primarily targeted at health worker’s children and students in need.
