What do we do at the Ukrainian Refugee Hub?

Update from the Hub by Gosia Golata
Since the beginning of our project we have managed to help nearly 300 Ukrainian refugees. Some were transported from the Ukrainian border, some were collected from the local train stations, others found us themselves. We are proud to say we continue matching them with Polish and British hosting families and help them to settle down after difficult or dramatic journeys. Many people we look after managed to find jobs already, children were admitted to Polish schools.
Unfortunately, the numbers of mothers and children we are supporting are just a ‘drop in the ocean’ of the 2.5 million refugees that have entered Poland in the last few weeks. This is why the Ukrainian Refugee Hub team is determined to do more. Should there be any strategic sponsor we are ready to discuss facilitation of a larger project.
Our Hub is currently based in a hotel in northern Poland. Refugees are accommodated there for a short period of time before we find them more permanent homes locally and across Europe.
We ask for your donation to run the buses transporting refugees, pay for the hotel, fund food and cover costs of medical help for the people we look after.
By donating to the Ukrainian Refugee Hub, you are making a direct impact, as every pound is converted into transport, food and shelter. The money from the fundraiser goes directly to Ukrainian refugees.
We have received many calls from people fleeing their country who needed our help, but we had to refuse due to limited funds.
If companies want to sponsor us on behalf of their workforces, we’d be delighted to display their logos in recognition or discuss other forms of our appreciation.
We have teamed up with internationally recognised Sue Ryder charity, to ensure that every pound raised will be spent as intended.
We will keep you informed and provide updates on our actions.
