Poland

Number of people served: 202 

In 2017 more than 5,000 people applied for asylum in Poland, but the country has generally been wary of accepting refugees. Its government stood in opposition of relocating refugees from Greece and Italy, however, some parts of the country, like the city of Gdansk, have been recognised as leaders in Europe for the welcome and integration of refugess into the local community.

Our work in Poland

JRS Poland focuses on cultural integration and education. JRS offers Polish language course, computer skills workshops, and special workshops for children, like art, sculpture, and science. JRS also started a Polish cooking class to help refugees join the local community.
