Description of activities
  • Plast – organization of Ukrainian scouts in Poland accounts for more then 200 active members of different age. We are part of worldwide organization, which has more then 10 thousand members and has members in 18 countries on all continents.

    The aim of Plast is to bring up good citizen and leader of society. Today we face numerous challenges as Poland in the closest to Ukrainian border and children and youth require help, who are our target audience.

    This summer, together with ZHR, ZHP and WAGGGS, and also with support of UNICEF we ensured organization or nearly 90 camps for nearly 2000 Ukrainian children. To get most up-to-date information about our activities you may follow our Facebook page here.

    We have also initiated and opened “Ukrainian domivka” (“domivka” – Ukrainian word meaning “home”) – safe place for children and their parents from Ukraine in Polish city of Lublin. We are planning to open network of such places in other cities of Poland. For more information about this specific project – see dedicated Facebook page here.

    One more important direction of our works is supplying of humanitarian aid to most impacted by war regions of Ukraine and supplementing of Ukrainian Armed forces with needed equipment. Together with ZHR and ZHP we had opened points of collection of this aid in 14 cities. We are closely cooperating with “Support for Ukraine in Europe” in this direction, who organized big storage facility and logistical center for sending aid to Ukraine.

Description of needs
  • The war and reconstruction of the country will continue for a long time. We set ourselves the task of helping our compatriots and soldiers endure this winter. Our Crisis Center sends humanitarian aid directly to Zaporizhzhia and Dnipro. You can also track deliveries on our Instagram and Facebook page.

    Permanent humanitarian needs: food with a long shelf life, hygiene products for adults and children, basic medicines, fuel for transporting these items, and warehouse rental.
