Donate to provide books to Ukrainian refugee children

Dec 01 2022

Thousands of Ukrainian refugee children are about to spend their first Christmas away from home. With its holiday campaign #SuperPowerofBooks, Warsaw-based Fundacja Powszechnego Czytania (Universal Reading Foundation) is making an end-of-year push to ensure that refugee children find access to Ukrainian books for the holidays.

Immediately after the Russian invasion began, Ukrainian refugees—mostly women and children—began to pour into Poland. In just a few days, Universal Reading Foundation sprang into action to create the Books Give Refuge Campaign, providing funds to keep Ukrainian publishers afloat and supply books to refugee children in Poland.

The books have had an impact. One volunteer at the Help Point in Krakow testified to the “immense joy” the books have had for displaced children, adding that finding books in their own language made them feel at home.

Universal Reading Foundation is accepting donations to continue to support Ukrainian publishers and Ukrainian refugee children.
