In the parish of St. Andrew Bobola in Warsaw collections for Ukraine are still being conducted. Volunteers are also expanding the „The Roof over head” database, which is a list of contacts with parishioners willing to accept war refugees under their roofs. Over 20 families are already hosting Ukrainians. Sister Agata from the Jesuit Social Center „In Action” maintain contact with other people willing to receive Ukrainians.

In the near future, we plan to implement the „Angels” program, which will aim to provide care for parish host families and Ukrainian guests. Each family will be assigned a volunteer – an angel, who will have the task of maintaining constant contact with their charges and reporting any needs to us on an ongoing basis. We will support these families, whether through our collection point or financially – says Anna Kozioł, coordinator of the Bobola Aid Group for Ukraine.

Arrangements with the hosts are being finalized with a contract-agreement, that is supposed to make it easier to arrange everything concerning living under one roof.

In recent days, 55 people have joined the team of volunteers and new ones are still being accepted. Any parishioner can volunteer to serve with transportation, assistance at the donation desk, translation, or the „angel” ministry mentioned above.

At the donation point, we collect specific products which we prepare for the planned transports and needs. Every day some transports with aid go out. The list of currently accepted gifts parishioners can find on the parish website and on the Facebook group „Bobola for Ukraine” and at the specially launched telephone. – explains Ms. Anna.
