From Dumfries to Poland and Ukraine

This is the story of how communities across Scotland came together to help people affected by the war in Ukraine.

Horrified by the news that millions of Ukrainians had been forced from their homes by the Russian invasion, a concerned group of ordinary people felt compelled to act.

The group, who called themselves Opir (after the river that runs through Ukraine) began collecting supplies for refugees arriving in Poland.

Donations came flooding in, supplies were sorted, lorries were packed and a convoy of vehicles set off for Poland and Ukraine.

MOOL and Opir invite you to join them for a special event where members of the convoy will talk about their experiences, sharing photos and stories they captured at each stage of their incredible journey.

The talk will start at 7:00pm and you can book your tickets at
