We will help you!

Crisis assistance and helpline numbers will help you in sudden crisis situations, for example if a person close to you dies unexpectedly, you have encountered violence, you have a serious injury or illness, or there has been a fire in your home. You can also contact the social welfare and health care authorities in your area.

An accident is always distressing, not only for the victims but also for persons close to them and those who help – so it is important to be able to ask for help...
