Harvard students lend an internet-based helping hand to Ukranian refugees

Too often, the internet is mentioned in the context of cybersecurity intrusions, deplorable digital scams, and less than flattering memes. Occasionally though, it’s a place where good things happen too.

A case in point is a website launched in the last several days by students from Harvard University. According to an AP News report, two freshman, Marco Berstein and Avi Schiffman, launched a website designed to help Ukranian refugees find a safe place to relocate due to the ongoing Russian invasion.

Since launch, more than 20,000 people have signed up at Ukraine Take Shelter, demonstrating the overwhelming need for those displaced to find a temporary – if not permanent – place to resettle. This isn’t only a good news story. It’s a potentially good life story. If you can help or know someone who can, please do or pass the opportunity along.
