Ukraine in flames
On February 24th, 2022 Ukraine was brutally invaded by Russia, leading to catastrophic results. Entire cities have been wiped out, thousands have been killed and millions have been forced to leave their homes. The entire country is under siege and the unceasing attacks result in continuous fires. At the moment, there is a devastating lack of first responders and equipment to help fight the fires.
