People for People Foundation (P4P) is a collective of entrepreneurs joining forces to get as many people affected by the Russia-Ukraine war to safety. Here’s what happened last week.
RTL news story about how bunq, P4P and dutch municipalities working together to open bank accounts for all Ukranians
Many Ukrainians in the Netherlands still can’t open their bank account, because they don’t have biometric passports, so they can’t start work and arrange an everyday life.
RTL shared our story of how volunteers from People for People, bunq team, and Dutch municipalities are working together on this problem:
Last month we announced People for People Jobs — a platform for people affected by the Ukrainian war looking for a job. So far 499 people applied looking for a job.
After several matches with our founding partners Picnic, bunq and Messagebird we are now working together with many other screened and trusted companies to hopefully help as many people as possible to get a job. The coming weeks we will announce the latest vacancies and matchmaking events with companies such as Tempoteam, Ron Blaauw, Wagama and Mooie Boules.
After a successful first matchmaking event, we are organizing the next one on July 7th at bunq’s office. This is an ideal opportunity to meet people from bunq and explore if there's a mutual match between applicants and the company, to better understand the company’s culture as well as the open positions. Applications are now closed, but you can still have a look at the job opportunities here.
Ksenia Negrutsa from Odessa and her husband Bas Godska stopped their business to help Ukrainians non-stop. They created the Netherlands for Ukraine fund, collected 800 thousand euros in donations, settled Ukrainians in Dutch families 2-3 days after the application submission, and transported cancer care patients and soldiers from Ukraine for treatment in the Netherlands. How do they manage it all - find out in the interview.
Partner bunq helped open more 11400 bank accounts (during the last three months) after collaborating with several Dutch municipalities.
We are happy to share that member of our team will be in Poland at the orphanage that Movement on the Ground has arranged. This is a safe place for already orphaned minors before the war that are now relocated from Ukraine to Poland. We are really looking forward to understanding better what is needed there as well as seeing firsthand the impact of our partnership.
Last week we organized our first matchmaking event for volunteers. The goal of the event is to meet the foundation, feel the atmosphere, and learn more about what we do and explore if there's a mutual match between the roles at People for People and the applicant’s skills, ambition & availability to join our foundation. We were happy to meet new inspiring people. From the 6 participants all of them were interested to join our organization. Looking forward to making more impact together!
The next People for People virtual date is planned on July 26. You can sign up here if you want meet us to explore a volunteer role: https://peopleforpeople.recruitee.com/o/tuesday-july-26-virtual-date-with-people-for-people
Our partner On My Way Ukraine would really appreciate the help of some volunteers to drive to Poland bringing goods and aid or to support their helpdesk in the same country. Is this something that resonates with you? Do you know anyone? Please, let us know via email at email@example.com
Also, our partner Lifeline Ukraine has shared that with the winter coming, they need winter clothes to bring to Ukraine. Nothing stylish is needed, only useful items, they can also be from previous seasons. They need big amounts, so pallets are the way to go. Are you working in the fashion industry or do you happen to know someone that does? Please, don’t hesitate in contacting us and letting us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
