Ukraine Refugee Relief (URR) exists to safely streamline the provision of services to refugees displaced by the Russian invasion of Ukraine. This network of local nonprofits and volunteers is providing food, transportation, and shelter to displaced peoples on both sides of the Ukrainian border.
URR was established in Warsaw by Alexander Prokopyev and Jerry Lai in response the the Ukraine Crisis, and has quickly grown into the leading resource connecting charitable organizations and fully vetted local volunteers with refugees needing assistance.
