There are over 3.5 million Ukrainian refugees in Poland right now, mostly women and children. About 600 thousand arrived to Warsaw (a city of 1.8 million).
My parents - Danuta & Krzysztof - opened a Support Center for the Ukrainian Mothers and Children. They aim to help them recover from the stress of the war and evacuation, as well as to allow the parents to deal with settling down, finding a job, etc. The Center provides food, english, ukrainian, polish and art classes, toys, etc.
In the first 3 months, they hosted over 140 families; Their maximum capacity is 15 at any given time.
The Center is run by volunteers and is entirely self-funded. They have offered (very modest) salaries to 3 Ukrainian mothers that provide courses and care in ukrainian language (including language, arts, singing).
You can visit their website here. With your help they can keep it running!
Please help if you can!
Hosting 15 families costs a ton of money and my parents are not affluent. Funds are mainly needed to continue providing food. Additional support will be used to organize additional activites for the children, including trips to the zoo, picnics in the nearby parks and forrests, or an agrotourism trip to a nearby farm.
