War in Ukraine: Ways to Help
Find international relief organizations mobilizing in Ukraine
Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine began just a week ago, the United Nations estimates that more than one million people have fled the country.
"Across the globe, more than 35 million people are dislocated right now, and the Russian invasion of Ukraine will only add to those numbers,” says Eve Duffy, associate vice provost for global affairs at Duke University. “The conflict also threatens to expand into additional regions, which will only lead to further loss of life and disruption.”
