Hi peps, In light of the awful war I have been looking for volunteer work in Poland/Ukraine to help out with whatever is needed. I have contacted several organisations but without any success. If any of you know where I could turn or have a contact I would be deeply thankful. I am currently not working so could be 100% available and for a longer period. Thank you โค๏ธ
Hi there ๐Ÿ‘‹ It's amazing that you want to volunteer & help. I got some friends in Warsaw that might be able to point you at the right address. A few questions:

โ€ข Are you in Warsaw or close to the border with Ukraine (Medyka)?
โ€ข What kind of volunteering are you offering? Will you help preparing food for refugees? Will you bring medicine instead? Have you nursing skills? Militarily?
Also, you can check the subreddit|VolunteersForUkraine . Good luck!
๐Ÿ›ฌ ilrjcetrmb just arrived in ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฑ Gdansk, #poland
I have friends in Rzeszow and Krakow who are involved. I think Manuel asked all the right questions above, so depending on the answers we could help linking you up with the people. And damn respect for getting involved!
I had an impression that one can pay out Euro from the Euronet ATMs. The official site claims so too -,282,_wyplata_eur.html|,282,_wyplata_eur.html
thats great, thank you! ๐Ÿ‘
skpmcaofgo did you find any volunteer work? I have also been looking for volunteer opportunities for the past couple weeks and no one has responded to me either. I tried posting in VolunteersForUkraine asking for places to go to help but I am still waiting for a moderator to approve my post.

How is the housing situation in Poland? I was looking to travel there but concerned the bnb's and hostels may be full because of... you know what
has anyone spent time in bialystok? what is it like there?
From what I've heard, not that much to do there ๐Ÿ˜…
๐Ÿ›ฌ zvvlbchkystfzj just arrived in ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฑ Warsaw, #poland
Hi Sebastian, I was worried about that. It's quite easy to find something. From what I heard, a lot of the refugees where hosted by fiends and families (since it's their neighbors).
Hi folks, I'm in the same situation. How did it go you xfvjlodype and />I'm in Warsaw for now.
I got plugged in to a nonprofit and am helping
How long are you able to stay?
I can try to help you get connected
What are your skills?
Hi lhivktgyyqsdtp thanks for the quick reply, I will send you a PM
Oups Scratch that tzvqepkuszdepz , can't PM people just yet! So my skills are in communication, project management and IT. I worked for a few nonprofits in latin america and west Africa. I speak Russian, English and french (and Spanish). I also have my own nonprofit.
I can PM you, then maybe you can respond

i've also heard that that side of poland tends to be more... redneck-y ๐Ÿ˜‚ .. probably wouldn't stay there for long tbh

Where do nomads stay in Warsaw? I havenโ€™t found any nice walkable areas yet with good cafes and fewer cars.
๐Ÿ›ฌ oolwopeynxxv just arrived in ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฑ Warsaw, #poland
ลšrรณdmieล›cie Poล‚udniowe is totally walkable or almost anything by the river
I guess just I need to readjust my definition of walkable, seems like in ลšrรณdmieล›cie Poล‚udniowe most roads are 4 lanes wide with no trees
I got used to Palermo Soho in Buenos Aires and itโ€™s just a little jarring how much faster the cars are allowed to drive in the city center
Look into streets like Poznaล„ska, 1 lane in one direction, almost zero cars, every door is a restaurant with an outdoor tables
Yes, you can find a 4 lane road if you walk around, but there is absolutely no need to be any close to such roads for months

๐Ÿ›ฌ niaeztexnnqleure just arrived in ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฑ Krakรณw, #poland
I walked a bit more than 150km since I arrived about 3 weeks ago, and yeah everything is quite walkable (I usually avoid roads with more that 1 or 2 lines when I can).
Hi everyone, heads ๐Ÿ†™ today's is labor day and May 3rd is constitution day here, so apparently don't be surprised if most things will be closed.
There should be some public celebrations events, but I didn't get any info about it so far.
Also, if someone is in the Praga or old town area, and want to hang out, feel free to drop a message in the thread.

Where in Warzaw would you recommend to find an AirBnB for a week stay for a couple looking to both explore the city and do some shopping and find good restaurants?
Hello waveskin-tone-2 I'm thinking about spending August in Warsaw, anybody knows how's the situation right now there?
๐Ÿ›ฌ vyagmujx just arrived in ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฑ Wrocล‚aw, #poland
Thanks! I was planning to go for around two weeks in August. My question was exactly what you replied about, war and covid. Do you have any recommendations on locations in the city to stay/work? Appreciate any advice

Heading to Krakow in a couple weeks, staying for a month, any pro tips?
Or anyone who would like to meet up / hang out ๐Ÿ™‚
don't go to the strip clubs that promoters try to take you to. Supposedly they drug you and steal your money
has anyone stayed in Poznan and Gdansk? Between those two, which would you recommend for a month's stay?
Both are great. Gdansk maybe a lilโ€™ nicer given the access to the woods and beach in summer months.
Stayed in Gdansk in the summer months last year - I can recommend it. Thereโ€™s a lot of cool stuff to do there (the shipyards, etc) and you can take a ferry to the Hel Peninsula/ Jastarnia. You can also get a train to Sopot/ Gdynia
you should come volunteer with the NGOs doing humanitarian work for the Ukrainian refugee crisis
Would love to, I'm in Georgia ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ช at the moment and supporting ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ as much as I can from here
Iโ€™m in Warsaw volunteering and it seems to me that nomads are uniquely positioned to have an impact because we can post up for a couple months and actually learn the ropes (even if only on weekends)
most volunteers are local because you canโ€™t fly in for a two-week vacation and have much impact
๐Ÿ›ฌ eubbqwoa just arrived in ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฑ Krakรณw, #poland
tpavzrmvrwhmso how to find out more?
Most people overseas who inquire about volunteer work never show up so volunteer groups mostly stopped answering emails from people unless they are already in Poland
But once you're here there are a million aid groups and there's always something that needs doing
I mostly help by loading/unloading humanitarian aid, helping with fundraising, and driving people or stuff around
If you rent a car, you're immediately more useful
If you buy a van like I did, you can deliver humanitarian aid across the border which is helpful because the Ukrainian govt is no longer issuing permits to allow Ukrainian men to drive out of the country to collect humanitarian aid
If you have any medical skills or if your speak Russian/Ukrainian/Polish then that unlocks a lot of opportunities but I don't have that so I can't speak to it well
Happy to answer questions if you have them
Thanks very much for the details! I'm still planning so don't want to waste anyone's time until I'm there. My main question is whether you could recommend any humanitarian orgs. Searching so far has shown a lot of donation portals but not a lot of info about volunteering. I'm not planning to email them, just trying to find which organizations are doing work and where they're doing it.
I volunteer with Folkowisko, FPU, August Mission, and SOK Foundation, those are all good, there's also r/volunteersforrefugees at the Medyka border crossing, depends what city you want to volunteer in, Warsaw, Rzeszรณw, Medyka are all big hubs
Awesome, appreciate that. Thank you ๐Ÿ™
๐Ÿ›ฌ bdnlhe just arrived in Bielsk Podlaski, #poland
you should probably ask in #romania for bucharest
in poland you can check
just a heads up for olx, gumtree and even facebook marketplace - it seems Poles have a general distrust towards foreigners which makes renting property harder. If you don't speak Polish, I'd recommend enlisting a Polish friend to help you with the negotiations ๐Ÿ™‚
