I think that would be a great idea, but you're right, it's very hard. but I am sure that even a few words in support of Ukraine help a lot!

Hi - I know Ukraine is accepting foreign volunteers, but was wondering if Poland is accepting foreign volunteers to help with humanitarian efforts of refugee assistance?

Edit: my cousin is on his way, but he lives in Europe and I do not

Generally, if the volunteer is not already in the area and not able to secure his own transport, lodging and upkeep, it's better if they instead stay at home and help by organizing fundraising for charities that handle the humanitarian effort.

It sounds cold, but in that situation they'd be more likely to become part of the crisis than aid with its resolution. The burden on the charities and volunteers handling the humanitarian effort is already insane - not making it worse is helping, after a fashion.

(I'm saying this because we had a few people like this: "I'm XYZ, have no money, trying to reach <half the continent away> to help" or "I'm XYZ, need gofundme so that I can travel to Europe to help"; their hearts are certainly in the right place, but their heads less so)

Only if you're somebody they need - medic, translator, the like.

Warning

It has come to my attention that OP listed a group which may have a connection to a far right military group called the ‘Right Sector’. This group is listed here as the ‘Hospitalliers’. Please DON NOT DONATE to this group. Normally I would delete a post with such a link, but there are too many links to humanitarian groups who urgently need help, and so at this time I feel I can’t. All I can say is, please RESEARCH ANY GROUP ON THIS LIST BEFORE DONATING!

Thank You

Hospitalliers? Like the Knights who fought in the crusades or is it some kind coincidence?

I would like to help with the refugee crisis. Crucially, giving financial aid to the people on the ground.

I found this page from the Poland government website:

https://pomagamukrainie.gov.pl/

There is a list of charities in the Join the action (Przyłącz się do akcji)--financial aid (Pomoc finansowa) tab, to name a few:

https://www.siepomaga.pl/pah-ukraina

https://pomagam3.wioskisos.org/?utm_source=mainweb&utm_medium=baner&utm_campaign=dzieciukr

https://caritas.pl/ukraina/

https://dzienniklodzki.pl/lodz-pomaga-ukrainie-trwa-zbiorka-darow-i-przygotowania-miejsc-dla-uchodzcow-z-ukrainy/ar/c1-16066073

and

https://pck.pl/na-pomoc-ukrainie/ (Polish RedCross)

I would very much prefer the local Humanitarian efforts. However, I don't speak polish. The information I have is based on Google translate.

If anyone here can help with verifying the organisations and give us better insights, it will be greatly appreciated. Thanks again!

All the ones listed on https://pomagamukrainie.gov.pl are legit (it's a governmental site, they are careful with checking). Some of the links are directly to the donation pages, like https://pomagam3.wioskisos.org, you should check their main page if you want to find out more (in this case it's https://wioskisos.org - they have a Wiki entry: https://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stowarzyszenie_SOS_Wioski_Dziecięce).

Thank you, Poland, for your compassion and generosity in helping those who have been forced to flee their homes. Your support is a shining example of humanity at its best!

I think I can be proud of myself, I with my parents are trying our best to help the refeuges is giving them shelter. Currently we hold a 12 person Ukrainian family in our apartments in łeba, we supply them with food, water and stuff for the newborns, if you want to support refugees, best way is donating to charity organisations or upcoming projects that have in mind building houses for said families.

Hello everyone,

I am working on bringing some doctors to a refugee camp in Poland.

I would come with a truck, 10 tents where the doctors could sleep in half and make a kind of medical mobile tents with the others, during 7 days. Bring there some medical supplies and maybe borrow from inner hospitals some medical equipment.

As I don't want to endanger anyone, i am looking for a camp that would be in Poland, extreme east ? and as we have tents and truck we are very mobile so we could be more efficient in what i call wild camp, where refugees are arriving first. Can you guys advise me on some place to search ?

And what kind of Doctors should i ask to join ? As they are leaving their patients in their city, they need to be efficient. So i thought about doing a first round for a medical check-up, with some generalists doctors and some specialists, and come back for a second round with more appropriate help resulting on the medical check-up.

I would be very grateful to find a contact that is actually in a kind of camp like this.

thank you for any help you can bring in this journey.

Remember to reconsider before supporting religious organizations. I do not doubt that many of them want to do good, but they can see donating a Bible as important as donating food or medicine.

I want to express my deep gratitude for such support to Ukraine. Several of my friends died there from military operations. It's really terrible. I never thought that so many people would support Ukraine, give their last, it deserves great respect. I am sure that the Ukrainian people will never forget this.

There are days when wounded soldiers arrive every half hour. Doctors work non-stop, without sleep, food or a simple cigarette. This is happening today, in the middle of Europe. Heroes live & die. Heroes suffer & bleed. need your help

Hello, I just joined this sub. I know this may be random.

I have a friend who just made it from Cherskay (Ukraine) to I believe Kraków. She made it about a week ago and has a friend she’s staying with but has been discouraged. She has applied daily to many apartments trying to get a place. She’s been denied every time. She does Web Design, was going to university for programming. She has some funds but is trying to get on her feet to work and get stable.

My question is basically. Does anyone here have suggestions?
