August 24 will be exactly six months since the beginning of the war in Ukraine. During this time, the Legia Foundation continued to support refugees who arrived in their country and people who decided to stay in Ukraine. 

For the last 6 months, the Legia Foundation, as part of the #GotowiDoPomocy refugee from Ukraine campaign have been involved in numerous. Such projects have helped refugees both inside and outside their country.

Aforesaid projects have involved the creation of a donation point in Warsaw where members of the community could donate all kinds of items. The items were then sent to Ukraine with two humanitarian trips in which the items were distributed where it was most needed. Furthermore, Legia Warsaw was able to provide accommodation to the youth rowing team, in which they showed a superb level of hospitality.

The club also established an international cooperation project in which a segment of the stadium in Lviv was equipped and assigned for people that were affected by the war. Additionally, the club organised a free job counseling point in which the aim was to prepare refugees to find jobs and prepare them for their new possible working life.

A new charity was set up (“Match for Peace”) by the club and all kind of aid targeted at the Ukrainian affectees was welcome. Lastly, the club launched an educational and integration point for children and mothers from Ukraine to help them integrate better into their new respective communities.
