Jezuicka Służba Uchodźcom JRS – Nowy Sącz | Jesuit Refugee Service JRS – Nowy Sącz
WHAT WE DO?
WE HELP REFUGEES FIND THEIR NEW PLACE ON EARTH IN POLAND
Our mission is to accompany, serve and support people with refugee experience and other people forced to resettle. We help them to recover physically and mentally, to get the education they need and thus to decide their future. The Jesuit Refugee Service Poland Foundation is the Polish branch of the international, Catholic organisation JRS International, founded in 1980 by Jesuit Father Pedro Arrupe SJ and now operating in 58 countries around the world. Refugees – we call them international friends – who come to our office can be sure that they will find a safe and friendly atmosphere, with the scent of warm tea and biscuits.
POLISH LANGUAGE LEARNING
We run Polish language courses for adults, thanks to which visitors learn how to find their way around the Polish reality on their own.
ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNING
In addition, we run English language courses for adults, which improve the professional skills of the outpatients.
We support our clients by offering psychological support. This is primarily aimed at people who have experienced war-related trauma. The help applies to both children and adults. We organise individual and group meetings in Ukrainian.
We want to create an integrated community where everyone feels wanted and cared for. We organise events and activities which provide a place of familiarity for the visitors themselves, but which also help them to get to know our Polish culture.
We take care to provide basic needs for the most needy and vulnerable people. We buy medicines for refugees in difficult financial and health situations.
LENDING BOOKS IN UKRAINIAN AND POLISH
We run a library where books in Ukrainian or Polish can be borrowed free of charge for a period of 2-3 weeks.
We provide information to help you find your way in Nowy Sącz, such as knowledge about state and non-governmental institutions that offer assistance to refugees in matters of residence and dealing with various issues (e.g. obtaining a Nowa Sącz citizen card, receiving benefits and allowances, free legal consultations for Ukrainian citizens and others).
