Since the war started end of February in Ukraine, millions of refugees have fled the country or are displaced internally in search for a safer place. It is a truly tragic and devastating situation and our hearts go out to the Ukrainian people. The pictures and reports from the war zone and the refugee camps arise compassion, a dedication to act and in some way contribute to support Ukrainian refugees.
