Posoka (Direction) House is a support center for people with addictions to drugs and alcohol who have not yet decided to engage in treatment or rehabilitation and are in a phase of active use.
Most of the people who come to the drop-in center sleep on the street or in very poor living conditions. To help them in their path, Posoka House in Sofia offers free shelter from the weather conditions, support in a clean environment, as well as a washing machine and a dryer, food and hot drinks, and upon request – psychiatric, psychological or legal advice.
What you can do to lend them a hand is donate food and essential hygiene materials:
Personal hygiene products
- small deodorants and roll-ons
- hand cream
- disposable razors
Food for direct consumption
- durable packaged foods - pate, lyutenitsa (a vegetable relish), jam, canned food, biscuits, waffles, etc.
- nuts, fresh fruits and vegetables
- juices, coffee, tea
- yoghurt and milk
- vacuumed sausages, cheese, yellow cheese
Donations are welcome all year round. Even a small package will be accepted with great gratitude.

Why do it?
In the trap of addiction, every act of self-care is of paramount importance. Your support will provide the clients of Posoka House with access to resources that are extremely deficient in their lives.
The public stigma these people are burdened with, their marginalization and rejection, deepen the social aspects of the problem. By lending your hand, you also give your personal example and contribute to the growth of society and to overcoming the stigma.
You can bring your donation to Posoka House in Sofia every Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday between 10:00 and 15:00.
Hygiene products and foods that do not require refrigeration can be sent by post or courier. Please cover the delivery fee.
