OM in Poland is providing psychosocial support and psychological first aid after trauma experience, supporting mums and children fleeing Ukraine. Running kids clubs, youth ministry and women’s meetings we are offering comfort, bringing joy and hope and living out Christ’s love to those who need it the most.


Participants will run kids & youth programs and women’s meetings at refugee centers:

- psychological first aid

- community building

- Bible stories

- English lessons

- sports, crafts, music, art


They can also be involved in aid distribution and warehouse logistics at resource centers.

Participants will provide information to prevent human trafficking and other security threats.

When time and language skills permit, they may spend time with refugees offering listening ears and sharing God’s love through words of encouragement and prayer.


The ministry will include everyday chores and meal preparation at the team house, doing shopping and organizing the warehouse. Time spent together in the team house is an opportunity for fellowship and sharing.


Current activities are focused around Warsaw area which received over 400 000 refugees.
