Humanitarian crisis in Ukraine: Ways to help
The conflict that began on February 24, 2022, between Russia and Ukraine has garnered attention around the globe. The military incursion includes air and missile strikes and ground troops, and the impact on Ukrainian civilians has been devastating.
Some experts fear the war could result in Europe’s largest humanitarian crisis since the Balkans in the 1990s. More than 1 million people have fled from Ukraine, according to the United Nations, with some being displaced within Ukraine and others finding refuge in neighboring countries. Some are also without basic supplies such as food, water, clothing and shelter.
