I know we are all closely following the tragic events in Ukraine and feel a need to help. Members of the Polish Association are currently providing medical care in field hospitals at the border, organizing accommodations for the refugees, and providing transportation for refugees from the border to hospitals or housing. The American Association’s Grants Committee authorized the American Association to wire $50,000 from our emergency fund to help support this gallant effort of the Polish Association.
