Support for war refugees
Caritas Helps | Help Caritas | Help with us
On 24 February, the lives of millions of people across our eastern border turned into hell. We all remember the crowds of war refugees at the border, the mothers with their children camping out at railway stations and the great stirring of people’s hearts. A huge wave of refugees swept through Poland. Although the media has quietened down somewhat and our eyes and ears have quickly become accustomed to war, it is still ongoing and cruel. Caritas in Katowice has been working without a moment’s pause since the conflict broke out. We have staff and volunteers working with full commitment every single day. Dozens of people use the accommodation every day. Among the crowd of needy people, there is a group that requires our special attention and care: those who have experienced the death of loved ones and those living with the heavy trauma of a brutal war etched on their faces. It is for them that we are organising our fundraiser.
At Caritas, we are aware that our nations are divided by history, but we remember the words of our Lord, Jesus Christ: “Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” (Matthew, 25:40) That is why we do not strive for divisions, but place our trust in love. The practical dimension of that love is mercy. When we overcome weakness and discouragement, unexpected and beautiful things happen, and the good work of volunteers and supporters far exceeded our boldest expectations. The Kingdom of God is upon us! We are currently raising funds for food, water, accommodation, basic medical care, psychological support, Polish language classes and translation of documents.
We do not focus on the bad, but try to fight for the good. Openness to the other makes it possible for us to experience mutual giving alongside all the evils of war, fear, suffering and death. We raise funds for supplies, water, accommodation, medical care, psychological support, learning the Polish language and translation of documents. The Centre for Migrants and Refugees on Jordana Street in Katowice is the place where we will carry out all these activities until at least the end of 2023.
Don’t allow yourself to get used to war and harm. Become one of us by providing real support and assistance. You are welcome!
