Humanitarian Aid for Ukraine
Tyler Sister Cities is partnering with Jelenia Gora to help to Ukraine.
Below is a letter we received on behalf of Mayor Jerzy Łużniak, from our sister city, Jelenia Gora, Poland. The Jelenia Gora Sister Cities organization is assisting their sister cities in Ukraine, as well as helping refugees arriving in Poland. Please consider donating to this grave humanitarian cause. Thank you.
On behalf of Mayor Jerzy Łużniak, I am asking for your support. Our friendly cities in Ukraine, Siewierodonieck, Tarnopol and Rivne, are in a very bad humanitarian situation. Jelenia Góra has become a centre of assistance for our twin towns in Ukraine, but we are also trying to help people who have come to Jelenia Góra as refugees. Poles and inhabitants of Jelenia Gora have become very involved in helping the Ukrainians, but with the escalation of the conflict, our help is becoming a drop in the ocean.
That is why we are asking for your help. We have prepared two forms of support.
The first is financial assistance. The city has opened an account in PLN, EURO and USD, where you can transfer funds that will be used to buy the most necessary things and sent to Ukraine or needed for refugees.
