AMT managing editor Kathy K. Webster interviews Hubert Sawicki, the AMT representative for Europe, about Poland's tremendous response to aid hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians, mostly women and children, as they seek shelter from their homeland.

"We have a long-shared history," Sawicki says. "We are eager to help in any way we can. With food, rides, places to sleep." He retells how, at the request of friends, he was able to drive hundreds of miles to make contact with three refugees and bring them to Warsaw. Sawicki also recounts the long history of the two countries and their commonalities – giving even greater perspective to the Polish response.

Our hearts go out to the Ukrainians fighting for their homeland and the refugees fleeing.
