UKRAINE EMERGENCY #HELPUKRAINE

The war in Ukraine goes on, while refugee families are now integrating to new homes.  AVSI has been there from beginning with campaigns such as #HelpUkraine; walking hand-in-hand with refugees en route and at Refugee Centers (Romania, Poland, and Italy); and now not only staying in Ukraine, but trying to get deeper to areas of fierce fighting to get help to those most in need. Help us continue to #HelpUkraine.
