Archive of Student Experiences and Help Resources in Ukraine
IAPSS is gathering information from students who live in Ukraine. Our page will be continuously updated and will serve as the archive of student experiences living in wartime. There are student testimonies, donation links, and a Petition to Educational Institutions To Accept Ukrainian Students that any organization can sign.
