On April 26, Administrator Power met the Mayor of Warsaw, Poland, Rafał Trzaskowski to discuss the ongoing flow of refugees from Ukraine into Poland, now numbering nearly 3 million people. Administrator Power thanked Mayor Trzaskowski and the Polish people for their tremendous generosity and continued assistance for Ukrainian refugees who fled Russia’s brutal invasion and are now living in Warsaw and other Polish cities. The two discussed opportunities for the United States and the international community to further support Polish cities welcoming refugees, especially in providing access to education. The Administrator also noted Poland’s support in hosting USAID staff and operations where teams are continuing work on development programs and humanitarian assistance for Ukraine. The Administrator expressed continued support for the strong ties between the United States and Poland.
