On February 24th, Russia invaded Ukraine, causing millions to flee their homes. While 7 million are thought to be displaced within Ukraine, over 5 million have left for neighboring countries. Without much time to prepare, many Ukrainians had to start their life all over again.
I spoke with Yuliya and Mariia "Masha", two Ukrainian Refugees here in Texas to find out more about what they are going through and how the community can help.
For ways to support Ukrainian Refugees here in the US, look below.
How to help support Ukrainian Refugees:
- Join the Facebook group: Austin Tx Ukrainians
- YMCA International Services
(Ukrainian Parolees program)
