@ Americares Distribution Center

Join Americares on Wednesday, June 8, at 5:30 p.m. ET as we assemble personal care kits for refugees from Ukraine.  

Americares will ship the kits to Poland for distribution to refugees as part of Americares response to the Ukraine crisis. Each kit will contain essentials for daily personal care.

Americares Emergency Response Teams on the ground in Poland are meeting health needs and coordinating shipments of medicine and supplies for people caught in the Ukraine crisis. More than 6.5 million people have fled Ukraine since the invasion; more than half have crossed into Poland where the Americares Ukraine Response Team is based. Americares has already shipped more than 110 tons of medicine and relief supplies to Ukraine valued at over $15 million and more shipments are planned. Americares is also supporting dozens of organizations in Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Ukraine providing services to people seeking safety during this crisis.
