No country has had to deal with such a large wave of emigration in such a short time. We are great because we have taken refugees from Ukraine into our homes, but help is still needed – RadioMaryja.pl

Ukraine is facing the war started by Vladimir Putin. More than 4 million people from Ukraine fled the war to Poland, where they received the necessary help. Support is provided by, among others, Caritas Polska, which organizes many forms of relief for Ukrainians injured as a result of the war. “We are aware that the war situation in Ukraine will not end soon. Summer is quickly passing and the fall and winter months are approaching, which will be tough. I hope that the generosity of the Poles will continue to be so great,” Małgorzata Jarosz-Jarszewska, deputy director of Caritas Polska, said on Saturday’s program “Polish Position” on Telewizja Trwam.

On Saturday, 114 days of war in Ukraine passed. Since February 24, 2022, the Polish-Ukrainian border has been crossed by more than 4 million war refugees from Ukraine.

– Our border was crossed by 4 million Ukrainian citizens. This is an unprecedented situation. No country has had to deal with such a large wave of emigration in such a short time. We are great because we have taken refugees from Ukraine into our facilities, centers and homes. Help is still needed. We hear that many people are trying to return to their country, where it is relatively safe. Despite this, many mothers with children cannot return to their country and will probably stay in Poland for months – explains Małgorzata Jarosz-Jarszewska.

Caritas Polska helps Ukraine both in the occupied country, but also in Poland and other neighboring countries where war refugees from Ukraine are fleeing. The first movement of Caritas Polska was the establishment of the Tents of Hope on the Polish-Ukrainian border. [czytaj więcej]

– Aid to Ukraine can be divided into many types of activities. The first step in the face of war was to create Tents of Hope on the border, ie places where people crossing the border could rest, warm up, eat, figure out where to look for help. (…) In the Tents of Hope we had childcare points, where mothers could leave their children in the care of volunteers for at least a while. (…) At the same time, parishioners, Caritas Polska centers received refugees from Ukraine to their homes, to their facilities for the night – noted the guest of Telewizja Trwam.

– We also accepted children from so-called foster care, ie from orphanages and different centers that were active in Ukraine. 700 children came to our centers. Some of them left for the West, especially those who needed specialist care – she added.

Caritas Polska has taken the initiative Familywhich is a response to the dramatic situation of families affected by armed conflict and humanitarian crises.

– We are trying to rebuild the Family Family program to adapt it to the circumstances and needs of families living in Ukraine who have no means of subsistence and whose houses have been destroyed. This is a program that has been active for years in Syria and other countries in the Middle East. We want to encourage Polish families to unite to provide basic livelihoods to families in need. We are aware that the situation of the war in Ukraine (as far as we can see) will not end soon. Summer is quickly passing and the fall and winter months are approaching, which will be tough. I hope that the generosity of the Poles will remain so great that we will succeed in building the Family Family program – emphasizes Małgorzata Jarosz-Jarszewska.
