On Wednesday evening, Prince William of Wales visited a residence center for refugees from Ukraine in Warsaw. He was accompanied by the mayor of the capital, Rafał Trzaskowski.

In a statement issued by Kensington Palace, it was emphasized that it is a detention center that currently houses about 300 Ukrainian women and children who have fled Ukraine and are still less integrated with the Polish community.

As reported, Prince William “listened to the stories of the residents of the residence point and learned about their experiences of moving to Poland.” “The prince also met volunteers who support displaced people and sort the gifts that the center has received from members of the Polish community for distribution through the free shop,” Kensington Palace said.

“The center previously served as an office building, and then was transformed into a place of accommodation. In the facility, residents are provided with two meals a day and the opportunity to take advantage of a number of services, such as Polish language lessons, assistance in finding a job, a play area for children, psychological support and kickboxing classes conducted by a Ukrainian coach who also fled to Poland.

Monika Beuth, spokeswoman for the capital city hall, also informed about the meeting between Prince William and Rafał Trzaskowski. “The president of Warsaw met with Prince William and together they visited the refugee residence point to meet its residents,” she said.

Earlier on Wednesday, William met in Rzeszów with the Deputy Prime Minister, head of the Ministry of National Defense Mariusz Błaszczak and soldiers of the Polish and British armed forces serving there.

On Thursday, the British heir to the throne will meet with President Andrzej Duda, lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and meet young refugees from Ukraine who, after escaping, settled in Warsaw and found work or continue their education.
