Jewish community helping those affected by invasion in Ukraine

People around the world who are horrified by Russia's invasion of Ukraine are coming up with creative ways to help. Some of that help is coming from South Florida's Jewish community. 

The pictures speak for themselves. Many people are on buses fleeing Ukraine and sleeping on cots at refugee camps away from the war zones.

"We need to have a situation where the money gets used and evacuates people and saves their lives," said Libby Hikind. Hikind, of Boynton Beach, is the founder of the fundraising website https://www.youhelp.com

They've partnered with Yad Yisroel, a nonprofit organization that works and helps Jews from the former Soviet Union. The organization is rescuing and relocating Ukrainians to other countries.
