The Mundo dos Sonhos association is raising the 35 thousand euros left to cover the flight costs of bringing Ukrainian family members of those already safe in Portugal. The EuroAtlantic flight will take 262 refugees from the city of Lublin in Poland to Lisbon.
The plane to Poland will not go empty, containing over 50 tons of donations, including food and health products. The founder of Mundo dos Sonhos, Carina Freire told CNN Portugal that with the number of requests for refuge in Portugal, she could fill a second plane.
The association has also sorted out accommodation in an inactive hotel for the arrival of the 262 Ukrainian refugees, as many family members do not have the conditions to house them. This project is in collaboration with the Ukrainian Association in Portugal, the Ukrainian embassy in Portugal, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs who will deal with the necessary documents.
