We urgently need your support to ensure we can welcome and support refugees from Ukraine.

The Together-Razem is a migrant led organization which provides support services to the Polish and Eastern European migrants in Ireland. Our mission is to promote integration and equality, reduce marginalization, and to improve the quality of life of the Eastern European migrants.

We focus on five key areas:

  • Information provision and case work – one-to-one and group information services, online webinars, and individual consultation on welfare, employment, social and legal aspects
  • Mental Health support– free or low cost psychotherapy and addiction counselling in native languages: Polish, Russian, Romanian
  • Language education – one-to-one and group information services, online webinars, and individual consultation on welfare, employment, social and legal aspects
  • Fostering integration– we organise regular intercultural events to facilitate social interaction, and we promote Polish and Eastern European culture amongst the wider society;
  • Advocacy and campaigning- we foster partnerships with key stakeholders to advocate for better protection of migrant rights, and we campaign on issues related to integration and anti-racism. We represent the voices of Polish and Eastern European migrants on local, regional and national level.

We have started to welcome Ukrainian refugees in our Centre on the 8th March 2022 as a quick response to the crisis.

We are currently not funded by the government and relying only on our reservs and need funds to support Ukrainian families here in Ireland and deliver essential services as identified needs i.e:

  • the provision of counselling in Ukrainian language to those suffering from stress of war trauma.
  • funds for emergency purposes for those families ( basic need items when they arrive)
  • cover the costs of our Ukrainian speaking volunteers ( travel expenses, phone calls, stationery)
  • expanding our capacity and services

We aim to become a main national HUB for Ukrainians and to present a strong voice for Ukrainian community in Ireland

.

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR WORK

Ukrainians are going to be the second-biggest minority in this country after Polish community and we are expecting 100,000 of them, so we need to get ready for that.

In our short-time strategy we need to rapidly expand our capacity and need extra resources to respond to the crisis in the best possible way.

‘For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.’

Matthew 25:35-40
