Samadhi is raising money to aid Together-Razem, a County Cork-based Polish charity, which provides support to Ukrainian refugees arriving in Ireland.
 
Together-Razem need funds to support Ukrainian families here in Ireland and deliver essential services such as:
  • The provision of counselling in the Ukrainian/Russian language to those suffering from the stress of war trauma.
  • Funds for emergency purposes for those families (essential need items when they arrive)
  • Cover the costs of volunteers ( travel expenses, phone calls, stationery)
  • Providing reliable, up-to-date information on the regulations for refugees after crossing the border is essential for those Ukrainian families living in Ireland. They can pass this information on to their relatives fleeing Ukraine.
  • Connecting refugees with the non-governmental organisations in Poland that offer shelter and immediate help – many people who cross the Polish border don’t speak Polish or English and are confused, we can help them contact their loved ones who live here in Ireland.
  • Enabling the Ukrainian community in Cork to have a safe gathering spot at the Together-Razem headquarters – tea, conversation, information in a safe space with a Ukrainian-speaking volunteer.
  • Essential translation services – the Ukrainian speaking volunteer is available to assist with the documentation.
 
 
Together-Razem is a charity registered in Ireland No 20075125 & CHY Revenue 19216.
 
Since 2006 Together-Razem has been providing various support services to the Polish and Eastern European migrant communities in Ireland.
