Stories from Poland

In Poland our activities range from building new affordable houses to renovating condominium blocks and supporting advocacy initiatives. More recently, Poland scaled up their Empty Spaces projects in order to support refugees that were forced to flee Ukraine for their own safety. This influx of refugees has placed further strain on the country that already has the lowest rate of homes available for its population in Europe.

Poland at a Glance

Habitat for Humanity Poland was the first Habitat for Humanity branch in Europe. The charity now operates in two regions; Warsaw and Gliwice. Our local team responds to poor housing through a number of activities such as the construction of new houses, renovations of apartments, advocacy (promoting social housing policies with the government) as well as microloan programmes.

The renovation programmes in Poland, in particular, have turned into a viable answer to our long search for an efficient way to help more families in need. Renovation projects have been completed throughout the country in partnership with homeowners’ associations.
