I am seeking help to give temporary accommodation to families fleeing Ukraine in particular mothers and children and to help get them access to medical services and employment. Poland has welcomed all refugees from Ukraine and whilst the Polish government is giving tremendous support individuals/organizations in a position to do so must help the effort and open up homes and assist with accommodation. I would greatly value your financial support so with my team in Poland in Katowice we can organize assistance/accommodation for refugees and give the urgent help needed to families most separated from their husbands/fathers and who are in a desperate situation. It is a humanitarian disaster. I am in contact with Ukraine families and I know is a wretched decision to make whether to leave their home and in most cases be separated from their husband/father. We have access to accommodation and support services but need financial help. The uploaded picture is one family that I am in contact with and need our help for mother, child, and other family members the father is left behind fighting in Ukraine.
