Temporary shelter for refugees in Warsaw

2022-04-26 11:55:50


The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity has teamed up with the Warsaw city council and other NGOs to establish a shelter for Ukrainians arriving in Warsaw. The super-sized, heated tent is located in the Warsaw East railway station. Refugees are welcome to stay for 24 hours. Facilities available at the humanitarian aid point include showers, washing machines, childminders, psychology support and warm meals and beverages. In addition, of course, there is a large sleeping area and comfortable rest and relaxation zone for people waiting for their trains or deciding on what to do next. Our shelter guests can also use wheelchairs, pushchairs and accessories for animals, such as kennels. 


Mayor of Warsaw and Jurek Owsiak have been joined by Andrij Deshchytsa, ambassador of Ukraine in Poland, who expressed his gratitude to NGOs and private individuals who offered help to people fleeing Ukraine.
