The Parasol Group



The Parasol Group was created as a response to the current situation in Ukraine. It is a grassroots, apolitical movement of non-governmental organizations and activists from the Podkarpackie province in Poland. Our province is directly neighbouring Ukraine. 

We provide comprehensive support to refugees and organizations working on their behalf. Our activities cover the entire area of Podkarpackie province and not only. We coordinate and professionalize actions that arose from the heart's need in response to the crisis. 
We create a platform to network with the government, local governments, organizations and activists. We established this partnership because we believe it is important to speak with one voice. 

We provide the following support: 
we connect organizations in joint action
we create volunteers' databases
we inform (we effectively react to disinformation)
we provide food support for volunteers
we conduct research activities to know what help and organization of work are most needed
we mediate in reaching psychological help points
we mediate in reaching translators
we mediate in humanitarian aid ("little bridge", that is, help from local organizations for refugees and residents of Ukraine)
