Besides massive aid from governments and global institutions, millions of individuals rushed to help the war-stricken country.

A recent report by the Polish Economic Institute, a state-run think tank, revealed that, in the first three months of the war, some 70 percent of Poles became involved in helping refugees from Ukraine, donating more than EUR 2 billion in total.
