questions related tot he current situation. Questions can be answered by community
members and Wefugees staff. Answers can then be voted on by other members.

the page and click 'Ask a question'. In the next step you will be able to describe your

of pictures if you want. Make sure you selected a category that fits your questions
and click submit. Done.
What kind of questions can I ask?
We welcome any question regarding refugee relief: Guidance, services, offers, ideas,
etc. What ever pops up in your mind. Questions with no direct context to refugee
relief or which do not obey the Terms & Conditions
will be deleted. Please only
submit questions with a solution-oriented approach. If you need further help, please
contact our Service Hotline.
What happens to my questions after I submitted them?
After you have submitted a question it will be displayed publicly. Your question can
now be answered and commented on by all other registered members. As the
author, only you have the right to decide whether an answer provides the correct
solution. Mark it as such and it will be displayed directly beneath your question. This
process helps other Users with similar questions to find the right answer.
How does the vote function work regarding answers?
You can cast one vote per answer, by simply giving „Thumbs Up“ or „Thumbs Down“.
Positive votes give the answer a score of +1 while negatives receive a -1. The more
positive votes an answer receives, the further up in the rankings it will move.
Is every question commented on by Wefugees staff?
We would love to give feedback on every single question, but due to the sheer
volume of questions submitted it is simply impossible. We will give it our best,though!
