DOZ e.V.  ( Formerly known as UKSSD e.V. )

DOZ e.V. was founded in Syria during the outbreak of the war – one of the most complex and enduring conflicts of our time. Since then, voluntary civil society engagement has been the driving force for all of us. In 2014, DOZ set up its headquarters in Leipzig and has since been operating in Germany as a registered non-governmental, non-profit organization. From here we support our local Syrian teams and civilians in various social centers and programs, support local and Diaspora communities in Germany, work closely with the DOZ office in Erbil, Iraq, and foster transnational partnership wherever possible.
