, the payment of monetary aid to Ukrainian refugees within the program of the German fund Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe has been stopped.

This is stated on the foundation's website.

The program provided for the payment of 700 zlotys (5,769 UAH) per refugee who submitted an application, and 600 zlotys (4,945 UAH) for each member of his family.

Ukrainians who were forced to leave for Poland because of the war received financial assistance from this fund for three months.

"Our financial aid program has ended, you can find out about other aid programs in Poland on the website of the Government of Poland," the website says.

Help was available in the following Polish cities: Wroclaw, Gdańsk, Bielsko-Biała, Ostród, Zgrzeży and Bytom. 

Also, the Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe fund has stopped registering for the payment of a one-time winter preparation aid for refugees who have already received three months' payments under the program.

"Registration for our winter support is closed.

Thank you for your interest," the message reads. 

As reported, only 5% of Ukrainian refugees live in Poland with financial assistance,

most of them pay the rent with their own money.

We will remind you that a special home will be created in Gdansk, Poland,

for Ukrainian children who lost their parents as a result of the invasion of the Russian Federation


Children who lost their parents in the war will be able to live there and receive psychological help.

But such an initiative needs up to 300,000 zlotys, so they are collecting funds now.

Funds are also being collected in Poland

 to buy Christmas presents for children who are experiencing Russian aggression in Ukraine.
