COVID-19: Statement from SCI Germany EN

Important information due to the spread of COVID-19 virus

The measures to contain the COVID-19 virus with border closures and travel restrictions or curfews directly and massively affect international volunteering.

We at the German SCI branch are in constant close contact with our partner organisations to keep ourselves informed about requirements and recommendations in our respective partner countries, and we comply with the requirements of the health authorities.

Our office has adapted its working methods to limit personal contacts as far as possible. We still have contact persons in the office to answer questions. However, several employees work from home and can initially only be reached by e-mail. Therefore, we ask you to address your questions preferably to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or directly by mail to one of our colleagues. You can find their email addresses on our Team Page.

We are currently working hard to make it possible for long-term volunteers who are abroad to return home. We are in close contact with our partners, with transport companies and governmental agencies to organize flights and to accommodate volunteers in governmental return operations. Safety has the highest priority.

Foreign long-term volunteers in Germany can, if they wish, continue their service in Germany. They are also in close contact with us.

Our staff will inform you directly about projects, seminars or other events that are cancelled or have to be postponed in the next few weeks.

We are currently still planning the work camps for the summer and the medium and long-term volunteer services in the hope that the situation will change for the better.

Of course, we are constantly considering current developments and recommendations from the authorities and include them in our planning. If you are registered for a project, a seminar or a work camp, we ask you not to book any trips or make any expenses in connection with our program until the situation has eased considerably and you are sure you are ready to start your trip.

In these special times, our solidarity is especially needed.

Be mindful, respect others and stay healthy!

SCI German Branch e.V.
