Ukraine Refugees: What you can do to help
Thousands of Ukrainian refugees are fleeing their country which was brutally invaded by Russian army on 24th February. Poland, which shares 535 km border with Ukraine, is the main destination for those who have left their homes since the war began. During first week of war nearly 1 million of refugees crossed Polish border and majority of them are staying now in reception hubs, special zones or were already taken to private houses and apartments. Everybody is actively helping, from state government and local authorities to non-governmental organizations, humanitarian aid foundations and what is most impressive – millions of Poles who share their own apartments, clothes, food, toys etc. with people from Ukraine. Many of us are involved in helping also those who still stay in Ukraine and suffer from shortages of essential products.
