Special Report on the Humanitarian Disaster in Ukraine
It is difficult to do “business as usual” during this time when 24/7 we see people suffering greatly and a major humanitarian disaster is unfolding in Ukraine. This edition of the Continuity eGUIDE will spotlight stories that tell us more about impacts to people. We will not address political or military concerns; rather we will share perspectives, needs and provisions happening on the ground. The lead story will document how one family reached Warsaw after traveling from Ukraine’s capital. They were among the lucky ones.Read the story >>

What It’s Like for Civilians on the Front Lines
The mission of the Risk and Resilience HUB is to consolidate and communicate information related to disaster response/recovery, crisis/emergency management, and business continuity. During times of disaster we must ask, “What do we need to learn and apply to better our organizations and communities? And, more importantly, what can we do to help in this current crisis?” As we began our research, we were given the names of trustworthy news sites in Ukraine where we could learn more about the humanitarian disaster unfolding. It was through these sources that we discovered important stories – about those staying and those evacuating. We are reminded of the basics for survival – safety, security, food, water, power, heat, and communications.Read some of the important stories we discovered >>
