2022 Annual Report


How was 2022 for Foundation Ukraine? Sharing our project achievements and progress in our initiatives!

Last year brought many unforeseen challenges that none of us were prepared for. But thanks to our collective unity and dedication to relief efforts for Ukraine, migrants, and refugees in Poland, we managed to endure it with dignity. Despite everything, we stand firm in our commitment to changing the world for the better.

Let us share with you the results achieved by Foundation Ukraine last year

We managed to strengthen and grow: we expanded our scope of activities several times – in response to societal needs and internal organizational needs, three new departments were established in 2022:

  • The Ukraine Cooperation Department which deals with the procurement and dispatch of humanitarian aid to Ukraine, seeking partners and contractors for implementing aid requests.
  • The Refugee Support Center that provides support to refugees in information, legal, psychological matters, accommodation, and job search.
  • The Management Office Department ensures the continuous development of Foundation Ukraine, maintains positive relationships with partners, introduces new processes within the organization, enhances the professional skills of employees, and fosters proper communication between departments.
  • In terms of our team, last year, the staff of Foundation Ukraine grew up to 138 members – three times the number compared to 2021!

The annual achievements of our Institute of Migrant Rights:

Throughout 2022, IPM specialists conducted free informational and specialized consultations for 27,200 individuals residing in Wroclaw and the Lower Silesia region.

Numerous accomplishments were made by our CUKR – Ukrainian Center of Culture and Development:

During the past year, CUKR employees organized 605 events engaging over 17,200 participants!

In 2022, we implemented 33 projects for developing adaptation, legalization, and integration of migrants, nine of which were fully realized and concluded last year.

While it’s impossible to list all events, let’s highlight the most significant ones:

  • Skovoroda Fest 2022 Festival
  • Job Fair for Migrants
  • The BEE (Battle for Ethnic Equality) project – an integrative and educational initiative for youth as part of the Erasmus+ program
  • Adaptive-Integration Training “Poland – My Place”
  • Language clubs: ABC: Argy-Bargy Club, Polish Speaking Club Wroclaw, Ukrainian Speaking Club Wroclaw
  • Language courses for refugees and migrants
  • Day camps for children
  • Integration workshops

Thanks to our partners and donors, we managed to provide financial and material assistance to:

  • 488 families through Mercy Corps and Sodexo projects
  • 100 seniors, receiving six months of support from the Polish Center for International Aid
  • 350 children who received backpacks as gifts from St. Nicholas

Charitable support for Ukraine was the cornerstone of the Foundation’s activities last year!

The Refugee Support Center was also quite active!

Within 10 months of its operation, over 3,500 individuals engaged in volunteer activities for Ukrainian war refugees.

More than 20,000 people received temporary housing at the Main Train Station in Wroclaw and in the Lower Silesian Voivodeship.

Over 35,000 individuals in need received informational support covering legal and social information, career counseling, and translation services.

Through the SAVE UKRAINE initiative launched by Foundation Ukraine in agreement with Wrocław Mayor Jacek Sutryk to support Ukraine during the war with Russia, over 10 months, we achieved:

  • Collecting and effectively allocating over 7,083,000 PLN to help Ukraine.
  • Sending over 2,100 tons of humanitarian aid to 20 cities in Ukraine.

We sincerely thank everyone for supporting our efforts and urge you not to lose enthusiasm for helping! Remember, every coin can save someone’s life. You can contribute directly on our website: https://fundacjaukraina.eu/saveukraine/

Finally, we’d like to share the honors we received last year:

  • The Wrocław Award granted to Foundation Ukraine by the City Council for comprehensive support to Ukrainian-origin migrants in integrating with Polish society.
  • The Lower Silesian Gryphon Award in the category “For the best cooperation in providing assistance,” given to all organizations, entrepreneurs, and residents of Lower Silesia for solidarity and aid to Ukraine.
  • Appreciation from the Consul on Volunteer Day for assisting Ukrainians and fostering Ukrainian-Polish cooperation.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to Foundation Ukraine’s activity Together, we believe we can change the future for the better and hope for fruitful collaboration in 2023.

Together for Victory!
