Weekly report, 03/26

[Disclaimer: as a non-native English speaker, I’m always concerned about language issues and do my best to write in proper English. Nevertheless, some irregularities may occur.]

What was happening with Ukrainian Refugee Fund over the past two weeks, since 03/15:

Donations so far supported:

  • two Ukrainian refugees (a mother and a daughter) travelling after a short stay in Kraków to Portugal, where they hope to find jobs and accommodation;
  • a newly organized small refugee center located in Kleszczów, a village close to Kraków (pronounced Kleh-sh-ch-uhv), where a local community set up a refugee shelter. Your donations partially covered for the works required to convert the existing building into a livable place (plumbing, setting bathrooms and kitchen, refurbishing dormitory);
  • two female artists who chose to stay in Kharkiv (via Polish fundraiser,, run by Aleksandra Sojak-Borodo and my colleague, Elżbieta Jabłońska, a Polish artist and associate professor at the University in Torun, Poland). The funds are transferred to Dasha and Ira by Elżbieta who is in direct contact with both artists. The artwork illustrating this post is Dasha’s drawing.

Deep gratitude to all the donors.
