40. Ukraine: Everything you need to know and what you can do to help
Since Russia invaded Ukraine on the 24th February, I think it’s safe to say we’ve all been thinking about the Ukrainian people.

I’ve been honoured to speak to some incredible people both leaving Ukraine and volunteers and NGO’s on the ground supporting those leaving Ukraine. In this episode you will hear from Iryna - who fled Ukraine after finding out she was on the Russian kill list, Cat and James, both volunteers from California, and Elmi Abdi, a Somali refugee in Poland, supporting non-Ukrainian’s leaving Ukraine.
To directly support Elmi Abdi’s incredible work:
