Wise Giving Wednesday: Introduces a Special New Series on Ukraine

BBB Wise Giving Alliance is proud to release the first entry in a new series of posts by Kateryna (Katya) Zhuk. Katya heads a Ukraine charity monitoring organization, Charity Tuner. This organization, along with BBB Wise Giving Alliance, are members of an association of standards-based charity monitors from around the world which recently held its annual meeting in Madrid, Spain.

Katya’s first post discusses her experiences as a Ukraine refugee in Warsaw, Poland and shares information about challenges being faced by Ukrainians that have fled to other nations as well as internally displaced people within Ukraine. Among other things, she describes the trauma and mental health struggles of these displaced populations.

This special series on Ukraine will consist of two new entries each month. To access Katya’s first article, click here.
