Please join us for a live emergency update on CRS’s response to the ongoing war in Ukraine and worsening refugee crisis in Europe.
Jennifer Poidatz, Vice President of Humanitarian Response, who is leading the overall CRS response in Europe, will join us live from Poland. She will be joined by Erik Heinonen in Romania, where he is managing CRS’s scale-up and support to local partner organizations. Our speakers will report on the critical assistance they and our Caritas partners are providing to Ukrainians fleeing the war and will provide a firsthand look at how the conflict is affecting individuals and families.
In this gathering, we will hear about the latest developments on the ground, how CRS is adjusting and expanding our response to meet the ever-evolving needs and get an up-close view of how global events impact individual lives. We will have time for questions and conversation with Jennifer and Erik. Their moving and insightful accounts will offer a ray of hope in the midst of this terrible crisis and will paint a striking picture of how your support to CRS is making an immediate impact on the lives of families fleeing the fighting.
