According to a statement to Agenzia Fides, the journey will reach the towns of Łomianki-Buraków and Ursus, where some 40 women and children will be sheltered for nearly four months in facilities made available by the Polish Camillians (see Fides, 25/ 5/2022). “Compared to the first visit, which took place between 25 and 29 May, recreational and cultural events have been organized in the affected places,” explains Father Aris, the executive director of CADIS International. A crucial moment will be the visit to Warsaw Central Station. Here it is in fact the Camillians who, through the Camillian Mission of Social Assistance (CMSA), manage the first reception of the arriving refugees. Two weeks ago, distribution of some of the 8,000 prepaid unconditional aid cards began, which could once again increase the influx of people arriving, which has declined significantly in the past month. “Our visit will also be an opportunity to discuss the project’s intervention in Ukraine to help approximately 30,000 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the country. Relief operations began in June,” the note read. On June 20, several medical devices (portable ultrasonic devices, electrocoagulators) arrived in Kiev. From there, they will be taken via Dnipro to the hospital in Krematorsk, where flour and buckwheat are also processed. donated to the inhabitants of Slavyansk, a few kilometers from the front line. The evaluation will include the opportunity to enter Ukraine to coordinate activities in Bucza, Chernihiv and other locations in the east, with the Polish NGO Dobra Fabryka and part of the project team”.
Part of the funds has also been allocated to support the hospitals of Odessa and Krematorks, which have been identified as strategic facilities for the care of the sick and children. The first month of implementation of the project has contributed to improving the conditions of the refugees. The good management of the first reception center has enabled correct reception. Accurate information and personal assistance from the volunteers have reduced the stress and confusion of the refugees upon arrival. The intervention of CADIS is part of a partnership with the Italian NGOs Salute e Sviluppo, Missione Calcutta, Pro.Sa, Madian Orizzonti and Cesmet, which have been mobilized since the beginning of the conflict to cooperate with the Camillian province of Poland. In addition, on April 30, CADIS International and the Tzu Chi Buddhist Foundation of Taiwan entered into a partnership to support ongoing interventions (see Fides, 4/5/2022).
