Polish Peacemaker friend, Orina Krajewska of Małgosia Braunek “Be” Foundation and the Zwiazek Buddyjski/Kanzeon Sangha in Warsaw, as she talks about the work she and her community are doing, bringing medical supplies into Ukraine and supporting Ukrainian refugees in Warsaw. The Małgosia Braunek “Be” Foundation, is a charity organization operating since 2015, actively promoting health education in Poland, inspired by the life philosophy of Małgorzata Braunek and her personal experience of cancer. But Everything changed one week ago when the Russian invasion of Ukraine began. Today, the Be Foundation is focusing on providing medical equipment for two hospitals in Ukraine – a military hospital in Chernivtsi and a war veterans hospital in Kyiv, maintaining constant and direct contact with these hospitals through volunteers of the armed forces of Ukraine. The Foundation has so far managed to send three direct transports of medical supplies into Ukraine. The Foundation’s main challenges are lack of funds for medicines and equipment and that Poland is so short of these much-needed resources. The Foundation is also helping refugees who enter Poland often with just one suitcase. As of March 4, there are over 600 thousand Ukrainians in Poland, estimated to go into the millions. Please join us to learn about this humanitarian work and how you can help.
