Help Ukrainian Refugees Fleeing To Poland
I moved to America as a Jewish refugee from Ukraine when I was seven. I feel lucky and guilty and helpless as I watch my homeland be destroyed. Over 800,000 civilians have already been displaced as refugees and we're only six days into the war.
I quickly realized that my guilt isn't all that useful unless I did something about it. Unless I helped.
So I'm organizing a fundraiser to send money to the Polish Center For International Aid who is providing refugees who have arrived in Poland with:
- hygiene products
- equipment for temporary kitchens like cooking and power devices or gas cylinders
- psychological assistance
- fuel (this is also for the volunteers working with the PCIA)
Here's what the org's website says directly (note this is translated from Polish to English):
PCPM helps the victims of the war in Ukraine. Please support humanitarian aid, evacuation of the population and psychological help for children.
We allocate money for the maintenance and equipment of humanitarian aid points, food and psychological assistance, fuel. Thanks to the collection, you can buy food, hygiene products, things needed to organize a makeshift kitchen at points, for example: backup power devices, free-standing cooking devices, gas cylinders. The help that we are now providing to the people of Ukraine is of a humanitarian nature - it allows us to meet the most urgent needs of the inhabitants during the war.
Assistance in the evacuation from the east to the west of Ukraine - The locals created, among others a humanitarian transit point for admitting people from war zones. They prepare them for the next journey. Those who have reached a safer place and have not made a decision to continue their journey can also count on free support and accommodation. Many of them come with animals that can stay with them at our points.
