Thousands of shocked, terrified and extremely vulnerable people are fleeing their country because of a destruction we can all barely understand. And they cannot be ignored. That is why Serve the City is taking immediate action.
Serve the City is a movement of volunteers active in various cities around the world, such as Belgium and Poland. For years, Serve the City has helped people in need locally where it is implanted through volunteering.
Today, with the situation happening in Ukraine, hundreds of thousands of people are leaving their home behind and seek refuge to neighbouring countries including Poland. In and around Kraków, our volunteers are partnering with local shelters and centers to welcome refugees, give them comfort, and distribute essential items. Our volunteers are also bringing these items all the way to the Ukrainian border, trying to help during this human disaster.
Serve the City Poland asked our network to help them with a list of supplies they are desperately lacking, from medicine to first aid kits, from diapers to blankets and more. And Serve the City community in Brussels responded to their call. With the support of our partner UPS, we have delivered 500 boxes with essential items to the team in Kraków, where our volunteers on the field will be able to disseminate to the people fleeing Ukraine who need it the most.
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT PARTICIPATED IN OUR COLLECT!
