Helping Ukrainian refugees as best we can …

Since the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the Neratov Association has been trying to help people who have fled the war. We first allocated shelter capacity and then began coordinating comprehensive assistance to refugee families who came to our region. Currently, 41 people are involved in the project. We are providing shelter to 34 of them. We are providing them with basic food and supporting them in integration, education and employment, including those who have found accommodation thanks to the municipality of Bartosovice in O.h. We hope that this will help them and alleviate this terrible situation.

What is our specific assistance?

We continue to try to offer free accommodation in our shelters in Bartošovice O. h. and Neratov, including services. We want them to save up money for a fresh start.

Basic equipment and clothing
We are gradually equipping our shelters with basic electrical appliances, home textiles and other small furniture, thanks mainly to the help of small donors. We have set up a makeshift clothing and toy shop in the basement of our information centre. Here everything is sorted and prepared for distribution and with.

We have offered various job opportunities in our workshops to all newcomers. Before the war, some of the women had their own trades. Therefore, we would like to offer conditions for our own craft production (candles, toys, we will develop cooperation for a joint e-shop), we are identifying other employment opportunities in the region and will recommend others. Currently, jobs have been arranged for waiters and waitresses, unskilled work in the craft workshops on the hill (mainly cutting and preparing other materials), in the nursery and laundry.

Further support and integration
Transport and assistance with registration, with the authorities and the employment office, with visiting the bank, with setting up a bank account, with social benefits, with finding and securing a doctor. Accompanying and transporting to small shopping trips, getting prescription drugs. We offer psychological and psychosocial support. Assistance for people with disabilities from Ukraine.
We help with enrolling children in school and, thanks to our contacts, can arrange with the principals of nearby schools to keep commuting to a minimum. Based on the interest shown, we will offer Czech language courses for adults at the cultural center in Bartošovice. We are looking for teachers.
