On the morning of Thursday, February 24th, Russia invaded Ukraine, which changed everything. In one minute, the world stopped, and couldn't believe that the war had just started. Millions of people have been forced to leave the motherland and become refugees. Others decided to stay and fight for the country's freedom risking their lives. Unfortunately, hundreds of people have been killed, and thousands have been injured since the invasion started. However, many people from around the world didn't remain indifferent and gathered together during this difficult time, organizing vigils and collections supporting Ukraine.
One of them is Magda Breitkopf, who decided to do something and, together with Beata Zaborniak and Magdalena Zielinska, organized a vigil "Solidarity with Ukraine" in Birmingham. During the event, they collected two big vans and one small truck of essential items, which with White Eagle Club's help, were delivered to the Poland-Ukraine border. In the podcast, you will hear more about the preparation, how they managed things after the vigil, how you can help, and what else they want to do as a community group called "People for People."
