CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: Support for forced migrant (refugees) in overcoming the crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic

The Polska Gościnność Foundation and the Foundation for Somalia, as part of the aid project financed by UNHCR, are starting to accept applications from forced migrants who, due to the current epidemiological situation, found themselves in a difficult situation. The project consists of two parts:

  • housing support – financial support for housing expenses for foreigners with confirmed statuses: refugee, subsidiary protection (Ochrona uzupełniająca) and humanitarian stay, experiencing a difficult life situation in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic – this part is implemented by the Foundation for Somalia;
  • Support in getting out of the crisis – developing a social plan aimed at getting the family / persons out of the current crisis. The program will include learning Polish, help in finding a job, social support, possible psychological help and other elements adapted to the individual situation of the family – this part is implemented by the Polska Gościnność Foundation.
