We have been working, since the beginning of the war, supporting Ukraine and Ukrainian refugees.
Satya, with her company WORKING WITH SATYA (www.workingwithsatya.com), a company that promotes consciousness, spirituality and inner awareness, has been working in Ukraine for over 10 years, where it has been creating a real community for all this time.
When the conflict started, we received numerous requests for help from our clients and friends, which were extended to their families, acquaintances and strangers. Requests for help arrived every minute and immediately we took action. We started bringing to Portugal all those who wanted to. But conscious of what it means to start a life all over again, we didn't stop there.
Faced with the arrival of many refugee families, it is urgent to gather strength to provide all the support to those who had to leave their land and their homes, leaving everything behind. In this context, we founded HELPING WITH SATYA, a Portuguese non-profit association.
HELPING WITH SATYA, is a non-profitable association that was born from a true willingness to help people. On the 24th of February the war started.
WE WERE BORN IN THE WAR TO BRING TO LIGHT THE BEST OF HUMANITY.
HELPING WITH SATYA is an organisation of people that believe in the power of consciousness and the kindness of the heart. We do our best to sustain what is truly important in humanity. We are driven by our hearts, we are driven by the light of consciousness, we are driven by the dignity, the honour, the respect, that every sensing being deserves!
Our goal is to SUPPORT AS MANY REFUGEES AS POSSIBLE, TRULY SUPPORTING THEM, NOT JUST IN THEIR JOURNEY INTO PORTUGAL, BUT ALSO IN THEIR INTEGRATION.
HELPING WITH SATYA is dedicated to find an accommodation and help integrate refugees from the war in Ukraine. To give them emotional and mental health support is also a priority so that they can overcome the trauma of war and develop internal resources to restart their life.
Also we want to provide them with food, jobs, cars and the INDEPENDENCE TO START A NEW LIFE wherever they are. Treat them with the dignity and care that they deserve.
We want to treat them the way we wished to be treated if it was us or our family.
We have raised and sent 180 TONS OF MEDICINE, FOOD AND ESSENTIAL GOODS to the military in the front line and people in Ukraine and we are supporting more than 80 ORPHANAGES WHITIN UKRAINE.
Together with 3 HUMANITARIAN CARAVANS we have already brought and accommodated more than 300 PEOPLE.
We also accommodated over 100 PEOPLE who came by their own cars fleeing the war zone ·
Along with our partner we chartered an A320 plane and brought another 163 PEOPLE.
Managing and attracting partners to ensure all the necessary cCARE, FOOD, MEDICAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSISTANCE AND JOB SEARCH to rebuild their lives is given on their integration process.
On the third day of the war, together with our clients in the Real Estate area, we developed a software with a database with more than 2000 ACCOMMODATIONS available in PORTUGAL, SPAIN AND ITALY - http://consultoresimobiliariospelaucrania.org/, which is helping hundreds of people to have access to houses for free or at a lower price according to the crisis situation we are experiencing.
We are in the process of creating a platform with our partners FOR JOB OFFERS IN PORTUGAL.
Meanwhile we created a data base to SUPPORT PEOPLE DIRECTLY IN UKRAINE with 200 CONTACTS of people that are in Ukraine, ready to work and support you on your project, so you can pay directly to them and support them, while they support you!
This is a way to help them financially and also a great opportunity to give them more purpose.
We have rented for 12 months an OLD HOUSE that we rebuilt and turned into a COMMUNITY HOUSE. It will accommodate 28 PEOPLE (already allocated to that house) where they will have water, electricity, internet, and food during that period of time. We will also provide support in transporting them, as well as work and support for their children.
All the house was remodelled with the support of amazing people that donated everything from furniture, to painting, to decoration, gardening and much more.
Since the beginning of the war we have create a big movement of collecting national donations of essential goods, clothing, medicine and all sorts of materials necessary to support people who arrive to Portugal and to send whatever is crucial to the borders.
For us sending support to Ukraine or the borders is done with extreme care to make sure that we do not create waste and that things arrive in the proper location and with the right packaging.
We are providing DAILY SUPPORT for a community of almost 300 PEOPLE that couldn’t escape or didn’t want to come out of Ukraine. We keep in touch with them everyday, supporting them with tips on how to deal with their emotions in a situation of war and life threatening.
We have gathered a group of 408 VOLUNTEERS that have been helping us in all this operations.
HELPING WITH SATYA main team, at this stage, is composed by 53 people that from day 1 left their lives, families and jobs to be fully dedicated to this humanitary cause in a total volunteer way.
