Foundation Ukraine has already adapted to the new life in the world of coronavirus pandemic and helps migrants to work their way up! In the framework of the project ReStart, specialists of Foundation Ukraine teach migrants how to deal with stress and the legal consequences of the COVID-19 epidemic. Every week there are free online legal advice and free online psychological consultations on the Instagram page CUKR.
Coronavirus outbreak is a challenge for the whole world. Changes in the law, implementation of several restrictions, changes in the work processes of public offices and business, borders closing, and a full transformation of everyday life have touched almost every country. Poland is not an exception. The epidemic has also made a huge impact on the migrants’ life in Poland.
Support of migrants during the coronavirus pandemic
The further the more questions appear on their way: How to rich home? How to enter Poland? How to prolong their legal stay? What to do if the employer forces you to get unpaid leave? How to apply for the residence permit? How to get social financial care during the forced leave from work? How to get financial childcare aid? Is it possible to apply for a visa? These and many other questions connected to the legal aspects, legalization of stay, “anticrisis shield” and employment process.
Despite this, many migrants have lost their jobs. Most of them don’t even have anyone to leave their child with. Some of them deal with stress and depression and are looking for legal advice and psychological help. To support migrants in this difficult time, in the framework of the project reSTART, Foundation Ukraine has started remote free legal and psychological support online on Instagram.

Every Monday at 6 pm we go live with the lawyer of Foundation Ukraine. During such consultations, anyone can ask a question and get the answer from the professionalist. The expert will also tell you about the important changes in the Polish law caused by the coronavirus epidemic, about the main principles of the anticrisis shields in the context of legalization of stay and migrants’ work in Poland during and after the epidemic. Also, there will be discussed implemented restrictions or mitigations of quarantine measures.
