We are appalled by the news of the full-scale invasion of sovereign Ukraine territory.
We extend our deepest and most heartfelt sympathies to our Ukrainian friends and family, whether in Ukraine or in New Zealand and to all who are worrying about family and friends who are caught up in this conflict.
We are pleased that Poland and Polish people provide assistance to Ukrainian refugees who head towards the West. Please find a list of organisations you can send your donations to help these afford. The list was provided by the Polish Embassy in Wellington.
