Two days after Russia invaded Ukraine, three Ukrainian families fled their homes near Odesa, Ukraine together. All eleven of them crowded into one vehicle and drove through 5 countries until they eventually found temporary shelter in Warsaw, Poland, which is where Whitney met them. Whitney spent a month with these families while volunteering at a hotel in Warsaw. In July we brought them to Bountiful, Utah, under the Uniting for Ukraine program. A month later, we helped two additional Ukrainian families come to Utah.
Uniting for Ukraine is 100% reliant on the Ukrainians having a person in the U.S. who agrees to provide them with financial support for the duration of their stay. Realistically, this is an enormous burden for any one individual or family, so we have reached out to our community for support.

After spending a month with Ukrainian refugees in Poland, these kids decided to surprise Whitney with a Thank You video the night before she left.
Did someone just start chopping onions around here?
