Today on The Current

In the second of two special programs from the Ukraine-Poland border, Matt Galloway talks with refugees still reeling from the shock of war, and meets those trying to help them. 

We hear from a young Canadian who has travelled to the border to help a friend find his sister; and discuss what happens next with Canada's Ambassador to Ukraine, Larisa Galadza, and the UN's High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi. 

Plus, we hear about the racism and discrimination endured by people of colour as they tried to escape the violence; and three rabbis tell us why they've travelled all the way from Montreal to help.

You can listen to part one of our coverage from Poland here.
