How is Poland Helping Ukrainian Refugees?

Since the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, more than 3 million people crossed the Polish border. They had to leave their homes and their lives behind to escape the atrocities of war. Many of them had only a couple of minutes to make this tough decision. They traveled for many days, carrying their kids, their pets and a few of their personal belongings that they managed to pack in a hurry.

In Poland, people have mobilized to help. Much of this help is carried out by volunteers taking their time off work, by individual people and non-governmental organizations. The Polish are gathering donations, offering Ukrainians shelter in their own homes, volunteering at reception centers. It is heartwarming to see how people have united to help, how eager they are to volunteer their time, effort and money. It is also amazing how many of you are donating money to support Ukrainian refugees and help Polish people to bring aid. Thank you! We couldn’t do it without you.

But with so many people that have come to Poland, the challenge is enormous and long-lasting. Warsaw is the key destination for the refugees. Some of them are traveling further, but most of them are here to stay. And they need our support on many levels.

You can learn more about the challenges connected with helping Ukrainian refugees get a new start here in Poland from our interview with the Mayor of Wawer.

How is Our Foundation Helping?

Polish people are known world-wide for their solidarity and hospitality. And they are definitely proving that this reputation is well-deserved.

We have also joined the action and we are putting a lot of time and effort into helping Ukrainian refugees begin their new life here. No matter if Poland is just a temporary home for them, or if they are here to stay.
