Solidarity Fund PL in Ukraine

The Klymentiy Sheptytsky Charity Fund

Since July 2022, the Solidarity Fund PL has been implementing the Programme to support Ukrainian children and women in the war in Ukraine. The programme is the result of close cooperation between Polish and Ukrainian government agencies. It was initiated and donated by the Chancellery of the Prime Minister of the Republic of Poland. Assistance for children and women is provided within the framework of a specially established Foundation of the holy blessed martyr Klimentiy Sheptytsky.

The holy blessed martyr Klimentiy Sheptytsky is a Polish earl, Ukrainian monk and a student, Patron Saint of the People of the World, a priest killed by the Soviets. Father Clement devoted himself to Christian service, and caring for orphaned children during World War I was one of his core priorities. This bright personality, considered a symbol of Polish-Ukrainian unity, became the patron saint of the Fund.

Financial aid from Foundation of the holy blessed martyr Klimentiy Sheptytsky will be provided to children under 18 who lost one or both parents as the result of the war in Ukraine. Women who were in Russian captivity will be provided with financial and psychological assistance, as well as the opportunity to participate in a recreation and rehabilitation trip to Poland.
