What is happening in Ukraine?
Millions of people have been forced to flee their homes in Ukraine. It’s been called Europe’s biggest refugee crisis since the second world war. It’s a tense, dangerous, and distressing situation. The ongoing violence is separating people from their families with some areas going without water, electricity, and phone connectivity. Many people are taking cover from the shelling in basements and bomb shelters and are going without the most basic supplies, like food and water.
What is happening around the world?
Right now, the story in Ukraine is one of great urgency. But even at a time like this, it is important to remember the terrible plight of those fleeing other conflicts. Their stories must not be forgotten. Conflicts in Syria, Yemen, and even Afghanistan where thousands have lost their homes and their loved ones.
