More than half a million people have fled Ukraine since the Russian attack last week, the UN said on Monday.
The exodus towards countries bordering the war-torn nation continues apace, with governments and volunteers on hand to welcome those displaced by the fighting.
Although men of fighting age are required to remain in Ukraine, many women, children and older men have made the perilous journey to seek sanctuary.
Families have been torn apart, although others have regrouped with no sign of a let-up in the conflict.
Volunteers have provided children’s toys in addition to other humanitarian aid but while making the journey those fleeing have had to rely on their own resourcefulness, making fires to keep warm and getting rest when they can.
Poland has made extensive plans to host the displaced people while many have also made the journey to Romania.
Although exploratory peace talks have been held near the Belarus border, the numbers are only likely to increase as the conflict continues.
