Bayern Munich to set up training camp for refugees offering German lessons, support and food

Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich have announced a plan to help thousands of refugees by setting up a camp to provide them with German language lessons, food and financial support, the Metro reports.

Bayern have said that they will work with city and state authorities in a bid to help the thousands of refugees pouring into the country from their war-torn homes (via Metro).

The Metro goes on to state that the club have already got the wheels in motion by donating €1m (£735,000) to several refugee integration projects and will now set up their own camp in which to help migrants that need financial, “material and practical assistance”.

This includes language lessons, football equipment and providing them with food.

The club say they are eager to help because it is a part of their social responsibility.

“Bayern sees it as its social responsibility to help refugees, needy children, women and men, and to accompany them in Germany,” said chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

This news comes after Bayern’s Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund invited 200 migrants to watch a Europa League game for free.
