Since war in Ukraine ignited, a significant part of the population has been forced to abandon their homes, and more than 5 million people already fled the country. The majority of those seeking refuge abroad are women, children, and elderly people.
At the same time, people all over the world are looking for meaningful ways to help.
It is precisely at this point that the Just Open Arms project comes into action. As an independent, youth-led and solidarity-geared project, Just Open Arms seeks to catalyze hospitality and bonds of solidarity to support war-induced, forcibly displaced persons.
Just Open Arms’ ultimate goal is to connect kindhearted individuals/families around the world who are willing to open their arms and doors to people that have recently fled Ukraine and are in desperate need of temporary accommodation.
Let's be there for each other, with open arms!
