The Parasol Group

 

 

The "Folkowisko" Association was established in the village of Gorajec in Roztocze Region, and its aim is to promote the culture of this region, which stems from the multicultural tradition of arts and crafts. Now The Association launched a program to support the victims of the war in Ukraine. The activities coordinated by them focus on five directions of aid (the action “To Ukraine by truck”, helping refugees in a tent town in Ukraine, humanitarian aid transports to Zbarazh, translation support, collection of help for people staying in the fighting zone) and are located both on the Polish and on the Ukrainian side of the border. The most important goal of humanitarian activities organized by the Association is to care for the life, health and dignity of all people fleeing the war. Help is provided by a team of volunteers who react quickly to the dynamic war situation.

On the first day of the war in Ukraine, members of the Folkowisko Association were on the front line of helping refugees by organising housing aid, setting up a humanitarian town on the Ukrainian side of the Budomierz-Hruszów and Krakowiec-Korczowa border crossings, and transporting tons of humanitarian aid deep into Ukraine. The Folkowisko Association was involved in spreading the culture of the Polish borderland in the times of peace, has turned into one of the most active organisations in Europe which send humanitarian aid to Ukraine in less than a month.

What makes Folkowisko stand out is its quick adaptation to the needs of refugees fleeing war. With the influx of refugees in the first days mof the war, Folkowisko focused on providing emergency assistance to refugees queuing for hours in the freezing cold to cross the Ukrainian-Polish border. It helped saving the lives and health of thousands of people, especially women, children, seniors and people with disabilities. Poland has taken in over 2 million refugees. The last few days have clearly shown that border traffic has decreased significantly. It is worth noting, however, that several million people from the eastern part of Ukraine have reached cities in western Ukraine, becoming internal refugees.

Folkowisko has signed a number of partnership agreements with Ukrainian cities, such as Ternopil, Yavoriv, Zbarazh or Rava-Ruska within the scope of Small Bridge project as a response to the problems of internal refugees in Ukraine. The agreements are meant to improve the communication between the Ukrainian local governments and Folkowisko, so that the aid that reaches the municipal centres is systematic and needed by the recipients. Only on Thursday, 24 th March, Folkowisko sent 7 lorries full of basic necessities to Ukraine. Every day we feed about 100,000 people in the border zone, our transports reach also Lviv, Kiev and even Kharkiv. So far Folkowisko has sent 1500 tonnes of humanitarian aid to those who need this aid most in cities such as Mariupol, Kharkiv, Sumy and Kherson. This shows the  effectiveness of volunteers and NGOs whose priority is to help their neighbours.
