In Ukraine, we are also supporting those individuals who have stayed, by partnering with local restaurants to provide meals in five cities and two border crossings.”Timelapse video filmed in Medyka, Poland, shows a large group of people receiving food and hot drinks. “The team has served close to 1,000 meals to families near the border, and we’ll continue through the night. We have 2 different partners serving hot soup and paninis as well as serving fresh plates of pasta” WCK wrote in a Twitter post.On March 3 the United Nations’ refugee agency reported more than 875,000 people from Ukraine had fled to neighboring countries, including Poland, as a result of the conflict.
