Rotary e-Club Poland is a non-profit organisation chartered in 2016 and it is the only Rotary e-club in Poland (District 2231). In the past, we have engaged in many charitable local and international projects (see: Projects). The COVID19 pandemic was a very challenging time for all of us and we dedicated a lot of resources to helping those adversely affected by this global threat.
The Russian invasion of Ukraine on 24 February 2022 has triggered Europe’s greatest humanitarian refugee crisis since World War II. It is estimated that Poland has accepted nearly 3 million refugees already and there are still approximately 30 thousand new refugees crossing the Polish-Ukrainian border every day. Over 90% of these refugees are women and children. The rest are mainly elderly and/or ill people. The men remained in the Ukraine to fight the Russians.
So, in 2022, we need to focus on the Ukrainian humanitarian crisis and launched a series of projects as part of the “Help Ukraine!” campaign.
NGOs responded to the refugee crisis immediately and they remain the key players in the humanitarian aid efforts. As Rotary e-Club Poland we need to do our part and we responded immediately as well. During the first month of the war we provided immediate relief (transport, food, medical aid, shelter, accommodation for Ukrainian refugees), and these efforts are continued. However, now we are also addressing a wider range of refugee needs, focusing on more specific projects and setting some mid- and long-term goals.
Many Rotary clubs from all over the world are responding to our appeals for help, contributing both in kind and financially and trying to make a difference. If you want to know more about our “Help Ukraine!” projects and fundraising campaign and/or donate to our fund, please go to: “Help Ukraine!”.
