  • Personal items such as clothing, mobile phones, bicycles, baby items.
  • Expenses for volunteers or facilities.
  • Integration and settling activities.
  • Language support.
  • Home items.

The primary focus is on Ukrainian refugees, though work supporting Afghan refugees will also be considered.
