About the event


On this trip Fat Mama’s Travel for a Cause is partnering with multiple Soroptimist International Clubs (including SI of Krakow and SI of Santa Clara Silicon Valley) and the Municipality of Krakow to provide aid for Ukrainian refugees.


At the end of this summer, many Ukrainian women and children will be entering their sixth month as refugees. Having spent half a year away from their homes, loved ones, and routines a new normal is starting to set in and that includes the need to start work and school.

Women make up more than 60% of the refugees who have fled Ukraine, and children another 35%. Providing aid through donations, funds, and supplies will help these women and children dream big dreams again and realize those dreams through education and economic stability.

By helping one child we help a mother. By helping a mother, we help a family. By helping a family, we help a community. By helping a community, we help a nation. Please donate generously to help us lift up not just one woman or one family but an entire nation fighting for their freedom.


As refugees try to create a new sense of normalcy the demand to meet basic daily needs is ever increasing. Without the ability to take care of daily hygiene concerns, no one can be expected to recreate their daily routines around school, higher education, or work. For this reason, to empower women and children to go back to school and work we are focusing our aid efforts on providing care items and school supplies.

We will be raising funds to purchase care products that includes feminine hygiene items (deodorant, pads, tampons, daily panty liners), skin care (Nivea crème, face wash, lotion), hair care (shampoo, conditioner, hairbrushes, styling gel), basic hygiene (toothpaste, body soap, hand sanitizer, toilet paper, diapers, baby wipes), and more.

Additionally, school supplies will also be purchased to empower Ukrainian children to continue working hard on their education. Providing these young Ukrainians, who have already been through unspeakable devastations, with the supplies they need to continue their education will help them to see a brighter future. School supplies will include backpacks, pens, pencils, paper, notebooks, markers, crayons, glue sticks, lunch boxes, and other needed materials.

Once supplies and goods have been obtained our Voluntourists in Krakow, Poland will work to organize, and assemble to the donations. Plans to distribute the donations will be coordinated with our partners. All funds and materials donated will go directly to the benefit of Ukrainian refugees.


Voluntourists can pickup their “Welcome Bags” at the front desk on July 25th starting at 4pm. All events are scheduled between July 26th 10am – August 5th 10am. Events, both aid work and tourist, are considered voluntary but are highly recommended. However, because all events are voluntary, Voluntourists are welcome to come and go as they please.
