Hello, this is J.D. & Lana Partain! We are heading to Warsaw, Poland, April 10-25 through the Send Relief organization. Our first week will consist of helping local Polish citizens with the logistics of refugee care. We might help cook, clean bathrooms and common areas, wash clothes/bedding, be involved in the distribution of donations and provide programming/activities for children. The second week, Lana will journey to Lodz, where her cousin is working with his wife to set up an old 55-room hotel as a haven for refugee women and children.
Our trip is already funded - due to the generous donations of family and Missoula, MT residents!
We are now raising funds to distribute (as determined by the needs we recognize in our work) to either the Send Relief organization, the Piemont Hotel Project in Lodz, or another NGO that we encounter.
100% of these funds will be applied to the refugee efforts in Poland!
