The Proszowice Recreation Center is a sports facility owned and managed by the town of Proszowice in the suburbs of Krakow, Poland. The facility has a number of residential units that are used for hosting summer sports camps for kids, and these units have now been converted to create transition housing for Ukrainian refugees entering Poland.
The facility is currently housing 85 refugees with this number fluctuating as families arrive and depart. Generally most families stay for approximately 30 days while they find themselves jobs and permanent accommodation.
The main objective of this project consists of building a full kitchen in an empty room, and converting a large meeting room to a dining area. Currently more than half of the units do not have kitchens, and the units that do have kitchens have insufficient dining areas.
Main Objective Budget: $8,000 USD
The secondary objective consists of purchasing and installing three additional washing machines, two dryers, ten microwaves, additional bunk beds, furniture for the units such as clothes hangers, additional mattresses and bedding, and general support for the facility in their goal of helping Ukrainian refugees.
Secondary Objective Budget: $8,000 USD
The third objective consists of general ongoing support for the facility to assist with buying food, paying for transport from the border to the center, bringing a counsellor to provide counselling, and lastly assistance with general bills such as power and gas.
Third Objective Budget: $9,000 USD
Total budget for the project: $25,000 USD
