How you can help
Volunteers distribute food in Lviv, Ukraine, to refugees waiting in line to cross the Ukrainian-Polish border at the Shehyni checkpoint due to Russian aggression. Thousands of people have become forced refugees with the car queue to the Shehyni checkpoint stretching for almost 20 kilometers (about 12.5 miles) with some people waiting for five days. As a result, most must cover the 12-plus miles on foot. (Photo by Pavlo Palamarchuk /SOPA Images/Sipa USA)(Sipa via AP Images)
