With CARE’s help, they have expanded their capacity to cater specifically to the added Ukrainian population:
- Through our partnership with Federa, CARE is helping pregnant and struggling Ukrainian women find health services in the complicated Polish health system. CARE and Federa are helping Ukrainian refugees with pre- and post-natal care, including the hiring of a Ukrainian gynecologist.
- With Feminoteka, CARE is supporting psychosocial care for victims of sexual violence and corresponding health services. Feminoteka is a Polish women’s organization providing holistic services and support for survivors, especially survivors of sexual violence. Their services and support include psychosocial support (individual and group), trauma counseling, hotline, and legal services including services in Ukrainian and Russian. CARE’s partnership will provide essential support to their rape crisis center, an economic integration program as well as self-care and security activities for Ukrainian women.
