Supporting Ukrainians in Poland

WONDER is working with our local Polish partners to provide emergency and long-term support to refugees from Ukraine.

WONDER is working with our local Polish partners to provide emergency and long-term support to Ukrainians.

Our Polish partner, Pontes, has been on the ground supporting Ukrainian refugees since the Russian invasion of Ukraine began in February 2022.

Together, Pontes and WONDER initially provided emergency support such as housing, clothing, and food, coordinating the deliveries of multiple lorries filled with essential supplies.

Today, our effort has evolved to encompass long-term support for women and children, so they can adjust to their new lives in Poland. This includes: 

  • Polish language support   
  • One to one coaching/mentoring and family support 
  • School help for children (safe spaces for children and young women to study)   
  • Safe spaces to meet with Ukrainian and Polish women and families, build friendships, networks and feel welcome and wanted    
  • Information, advice and guidance on their new country; how to access services and participate in civic life   
  • Employability support (CV writing, job search and support)   
  • Continuous psychological support   
  • Service delivered in a trauma-informed way   

We are doing this work in five cities across Poland, and have reached over 1,000 families.

WONDER Foundation has worked with locally-led Polish organisations to support Ukrainian migrant women in Poland since 2018 through the FATIMA Project.
