World Sauna Aid Moment- Saturday 11th March 2023
Mar 07, 2023
The International Sauna Association (ISA) invites sauna owners across the world to host a sauna party to support Ukrainians- through Sauna Aid.
February 24th marked one year since the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Approximately 40% of Ukraine’s energy infrastructure has been demolished and about six million are displaced within the borders of the country (Eurobserver, Januray 30, 2023). Sauna Aid is a multi-country initiative to provide movable sauna facilities and supportive services to people in countries confronted by natural and man-made disasters. The initiative is sponsored by the International Sauna Association (ISA).
Sauna is an aspect of daily life in Ukraine
Sauna, which is referred to as laznia or banya in Ukraine, is an essential aspect of the daily life. It offers hygiene, stress relief, socialization and psychological comfort. As outlined by ISA, the money collected from the World Sauna Aid Moment will go towards the following initiatives:
- Purchase and deliver ten ready-made tent saunas to local Ukrainian officials, as well as provide standards and blueprints for a “homegrown” Ukrainian tent sauna manufacturing industry.
- Expand the educational sauna training programme.
- Oversee the building and delivery of five ready-to use saunas built into standardised shipping containers, and work with local Ukrainian industry to make their own.
- Sauna International
