Our Latest Podcast - Humanitarian Crisis for Ukrainians: What to Expect This Winter

European countries are preparing for another wave of Ukrainian refugees, numbering in the hundreds of thousands, as winter approaches and Russia targets Ukraine’s power grid.

Join CAF America President and CEO Ted Hart in conversation with CAF America charity partners who are providing direct relief to Ukrainians throughout Central and Eastern Europe. You will hear firsthand insights from our partners as they share their experience and provide a deeper understanding of the current state of the humanitarian relief and response landscape. This conversation will address what work is currently being done to support Ukrainians, what these organizations see as challenges to providing that relief effectively, and what changes they anticipate seeing in the coming winter months.

CAF America was joined in this conversation by Dr. Wojtek Wilk of the Polish Center for International Aid (PCPM), Beata Dolińska of Polish Humanitarian Action, and Erika Dvořáková of People in Need.
