Cadillac King is starting this fundraiser to provide direct support to Ukrainian refugees in Poland. Our family friend is currently housing about 40 refugees, primarily children, who have family members who either stayed back in Ukraine to fight or have passed due to the tragic reality currently in Ukraine. The community supports his efforts by providing extra clothes and toys for the kids. But, he has unfortunately been unable to receive community or government funding to help with food and medical costs.
This fundraiser will directly support these families, and if the funds raised exceed what he needs to feed, house, and care for these families, we will direct the funds to other neighboring individuals in Poland that are doing the same.
Thank you for your support, and please reach out to Thomas at Cadillac King if you have any questions! Below, you can find more details about the families currently finding refuge here.
This family is from Mariupol, a very dangerous part of Ukraine. Natasza (the mother) came with her three children. Roman (19-year-old son) suffers from multiple sclerosis disease and needs daily rehabilitation. Natasza's two daughters are 6 and 8 years old. Their father has stayed in Ukraine to fight.
These are a few of the other families, only mothers and small children ages 1.5 years old to 12 years old. The families are from Kiev, Kharkiv, and Mariupol and reached Poland by taking a train to the border and then by foot or bus.
This family is from Podilsk, Ukraine. The family consists of two adults and six children. Five of the children were recently orphaned and are now being cared for by their uncle. They got to Poland by train that was being shot at and crossed the border by foot.
