Refugees Impacted by the Ukraine & Russia Crisis

With the ongoing violence and escalation of the Russo-Ukrainian War, Ukrainian civilians from all over Eastern Europe have become refugees. Struggling to find refuge, and stability, Ukrainian refugees that are now numbering over 6 million are in desperate need for solutions.  The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), aims to protect and provide for these people that have been forced to leave their homes due to war, and persecution. How will you delegates be able to manage this rapid refugee problem from Ukraine? How will you come together to aid those in need? In this committee, our focus is not on ending the war, but debating the best framework to aid the Ukrainian refugees in resettling and revitalizing their community.
