The "Wäisse Rank" foundation - an organisation dedicated to the support of crime victims - can be reached at any time at the number 621 16 34 20 in case of emergencies.

"Wäisse Rank" released a statement on Friday, declaring that their helpline - 40 20 40 - will remain out of service until Wednesday.

However, in the case of an emergency, calls can be made to the number 621 16 34 20 at all times.

The foundation helps and supports crime victims, including but not limited to victims of sexual assault, by providing practical help, but also by listening to them if they need someone to speak to.
