Repatriates. How Gdansk helps Poles from the East

Gdansk is one of the few Polish cities that consistently and independently of the political climate are implementing the repatriation program of our compatriots from the East. Poles from Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Georgia, and Asian parts of Russia, who in the past were exiled from their homeland to these far-away places, now get a chance to return to Poland. In Gdansk they receive housing support, help in refreshing Polish language, finding work and adapting to our local community.
