In 2015 the Doka branch at Vienna Auhof moved to a larger location. The idea was born that the building which thereby became vacant should be linked with emergency accommodation for refugees. At this time the building is home to 60 women and children, all currently seeking exile in Austria. The Caritas organisation has at least one qualified carer on the premises 24 hours a day. The residents receive the assistance they need to start afresh in Austria, with additional support from legal experts, social workers and the authorities.
The Umdasch Group has made the building available free of charge and pays for the entire running costs. Also the employees promptly decided to organise a campaign for donations.
