Ukraine’s Refugee Crisis: The Faces of War

The world is witnessing the fastest-growing refugee crisis in Europe since World War II as millions of refugees are streaming from Ukraine into neighboring countries. These refugees are crossing into Poland, Germany, Hungary, Slovakia, Moldova, and Romania. Soon other countries, including the United States, will be receiving these refugees who were forced to leave their homes with very little and few hopes.

This webinar addresses resettlement and many other issues associated with this migration. Most of us have witnessed the painful faces of these women and children on the news. The numbers may be great but each person has an individual story that began with a normal life before the invasion by Russia. The people of Ukraine are demonstrating tremendous courage and we should not lose sight of this. In this webinar, you hear testimonies from leading voices who know of this crisis and who share with you their perspective on this ever-evolving crisis situation.
