Since the beginning of March, the Krzyżowa Foundation for Mutual Understanding in Europe has been hosting refugees from Ukraine. Around 100 people have found a shelter in Krzyżowa. About half of them are children and youngsters.

It was clear for the Krzyżowa Foundation for Mutual Understanding in Europe: We can help, so we do it. Donations were collected and rooms prepared to host refugees – sleeping rooms, a kitchen, a dining room, and two play rooms for children. Now, the Krzyżowa Foundation is offering accommodation for about 100 people fleeing the war in Ukraine; some of them are staying longer, some only for a short time. They are provided with the most basic necessities. Moreover, the Foundation team has been organising care and educational activities for children and helping the adults to complete formalities related to their stay in Poland.  From 21st March on, the children has attended school in Grodziszcze und Świdnica.

Educational and exchange activities are being conducted as planned

Besides offering the refugee aid, the Kreisau-Initiative and the Krzyżowa Foundation keeps conducting their usual projects and educational activities. The events are taking place as planned and are not being affected by the aid measures. The Foundation's premises are large enough for everyone – for the refugees as well as for project participants.

Our work has never been so important as it is now. Everyone participating in our youth exchanges, training courses, and other projects supports Krzyżowa  financially and ideally and contribute to building a European society that is characterised by democracy, solidarity, and sustainability.

There is still much to do!

We express our gratitude to everybody who is helping the Krzyżowa Foundation to provide refuge for Ukrainian people – donors, sponsors, individuals, institutions, partners, and organisations from Poland, Germany and other countries. Your support is invaluable and makes is possible to plan activities in a time when we don't know for how long our assistance will be needed. The needs are still large.
