Tjada D'Oyen McKenna, the CEO of Mercy Corps, an NGO on the front lines of the Ukrainian crisis, provides an inside look on how they’re helping address the needs of refugees.

She also cautions about potential negative impacts elsewhere, as troubles in Ukraine pull resources from other struggling populations.
