WABI reports on UMaine alumnus who volunteered in Ukraine
WABI (Channel 5 in Bangor) interviewed Ryan Warner, a 2011 graduate of the University of Maine and 2016 graduate of UMaine’s School of Policy and International Affairs (SPIA), about his experience providing volunteer medical aid in Ukraine. “Inside of Ukraine right now, it feels a little bit like World War III. … I mean, we were running into, you know, entire families essentially, like groups of women whose husbands were fighting, and they had had set up what was acting as de facto NGOs transporting everything from military, relatively minor military equipment, like body armor to medications for the front lines for the soldiers. It was an inspiring effort,” Warner said.
