From Marija Jakubowycz

On November 19, 2009 I submitted the declaration of intent on establishment of the Foundation for Ukrainian Migrants in Poland – it was a big positive event in my life and most importantly, well-elaborated over the years decision. On 4 December I submitted a proposal to the National Court for registration of the Foundation in order to gain legal status. An important fact is that this is one of the first organizations formed by Ukrainian immigrants in Poland and acting on their behalf. Intensive Ukrainian migration to Poland began from early 90s and lasts till nowadays. However, the low social status, financial and the housing instability, complex rules under the assumption of non-governmental organizations in Poland for many years prevented the creation of the organization with full legal personality, which would belong to the organization of Ukrainian migrants and would operate for the benefit of their rights. Another organization with a similar specificity is now operating in Gdansk and was organization by my friend Nina Padun under the name “Crossroads – Gulf of Gdansk”, we will support each other in our activities.
