Assistance to refugees

Our Association helps all Ukrainians who find themselves in a difficult situation on Portuguese territory, due to the forced need to leave their homeland

Assistance to refugees

When the russian invasion of Ukraine started, we worked as individual volunteers from Algarve, coordinating our activities through Facebook groups to help evacuate Ukrainians from Poland to Portugal. We continue carrying out this activity together with providing organizational and consultative assistance concerning the life of Ukrainians in Portugal. Later it became clear that the refugee’s relocation was only the beginning of a difficult adaptation period to the new country. The vast majority of the newcomers are women and children, that is a more vulnerable layer of society, which requires special assistance and support. Thus, a group of volunteers switched to helping refugees in legalizing, translation, document processing, obtaining social assistance, housing.
