Dear house supporters! We would like to thank you all for being ready to host Refugies from Ukraine. But please do not expect from us many calls maybe in a very emergency situation. We decided to stop such practice. First of all because we realised how complex the problem we wil face in a couple of weeks and governmental shelters now are going to be open, well equipped and with all needed and professional staff.
We really would like to help, all of us, but lets help with the warm heart and cold head.
It's obviously always is up to you to take or not to take, but we see that most of the people who comes to NL are traumatised and they need a professional help and we cannot provide it in individual houses, thats first. Also Ukrainian people most of the time are very shy in the guest status so, they are feeling themselves not comfortable of eating someones food or using the space and as far as not all laws yet working plus Ukrainians need a time to adjust after the war event and then from cultural shock, we strongly recommend you to help with needed items, transportation, advice, translations, language learning, but not hosting in families.
We hope you will find our position at least logical.
