With the disastrous war in Ukraine, hundreds of thousands of refugees, mostly mothers with children, are fleeing Ukraine coming to Poland and other adjacent countries. Some of them travel further being welcome in other European countries, but most stay in Poland, with new refugees coming day by day. The Polish government and private people provide help in many ways. Many Polish families now open their doors to host refugees and travel to the boarder to help there. Almost everyone is involved in some voluntary work.
This is a call for support in order to enable urgent and essential help in the Polish Ukrainian border region.
In the last days Polish scientists were contacted and asked for help that is needed. Prof. Univ. Krystyna Skalicka-Woźniak, long standing board member of GA, is actively working in the Polish Ukrainian Foundation for the Development of Medicine. The focus of the foundation is to support Ukrainian medical doctors providing them the possibility to participate in foreign internships or international scientific conferences, etc. However, now suddenly, this foundation has very different and challenging tasks in front of it. With the help of many people it already supports the hospital with which it has been collaborating for years. The Foundation is sending essential medicines and other necessary items, but still more help is needed. It decided to help mothers with children in Lublin by establishing a Kindergarten / Nursery and child support day rooms, and to provide employment for the Ukrainian mothers, who are confronted with a very difficult situation. There are many people involved in helping in place. Every day there are new needs, new actions like when in the first days of March an entire orphanage moved from Ukraine to the Lublin region.
