What it means to be a HostNation friend

"It's a two-way thing and we are equals," as one befriender says. "We both get a lot out of it – we have a genuine friendship."

At HostNation we offer you a simple and informal way to reach out to a lonely refugee and introduce them to your city, your culture and your favourite activities.

Relax and have fun

It’s very flexible: you choose when and where to meet up. We suggest a weekly meeting and phone contact for an initial period of three months. After introducing you, we won’t step in unless you ask us to, but we're there for any support you need. We check in with a monthly phone call.


Refugees rarely get the chance to relax and just enjoy life. You are there to be yourself, chat and have fun. And you may just make a new best friend!
