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.

Due to the fact that we’re working in a humanitarian disaster situation, the scope and location of ministry may need to be adjusted without prior notification.

• Flexible, adaptable and focused on serving others;

• Responsible and able to able to work under the authority of the local OM team and government officials (refugee centers are often run by the State);
