Like many, I have been glued to my TV, Facebook, IG, and TikTok for the last two weeks, watching the events in Ukraine unfold with shock and sadness. From the beginning, I started asking myself ‘What can I do?’
After much prayer and contemplation, I made the bold leap to apply as a volunteer aide for refugees. I have been placed in Brussels, Belgium and I will leave to offer my help at the end of April. While I understand the gravity of the situation, I can’t help but be hopeful that I might make a small difference and help the refugees of Ukraine. I will be working with food and community outreach in Brussels which includes offering help to those outside immigration offices and other displaced persons. I ask for your good thoughts for myself as I make this journey but mostly for the people of Ukraine.
