The IRC offers lifesaving care and life-changing assistance to refugees forced to flee from war or disaster. The IRC is on the ground in Poland, working through partners to provide some of the more than 2 million newly arrived refugees from Ukraine with psychosocial and legal support, cultural assistance, and translation services. They are also providing medical equipment for health teams operating at refugee reception centers and border crossing points and procuring other essential items such as sleeping bags and blankets for distribution at reception centers on the Ukrainian/Polish border.
