When Sarah Ferguson Inundated With Support After Sharing Emotional Update

Sarah Ferguson has endured a
heartbreaking few days as she journeyed to Ukraine and Poland to see first-hand
the effect of Russia’s invasion.

The Duchess of York has been in Ukraine and Poland and on Friday met
with refugees who had fled to towns in Poland like Rudy and Kuznia Raciborska,
areas that she admitted she’d “known and loved” since the founding of
her charity, Sarah’s Trust. Sarah shared several photos of her meeting
women and children who fled the country, and she sweetly embraced some of the
children in the snaps.

“It’s important to remember the people and the places who have been
such a big part of my life,” she explained. “I also wanted to honour
the smaller towns and villages who haven’t hesitated in opening their doors to
the Ukrainian people.”

Sharing emotional stories from her time there, she penned: “I spent
time with Ukrainian families given refuge at the Old Abbey. Fr Jan Rosiek runs
the Foundation ‘Stare Opactwo Rudach’. They have fled from different parts of
Ukraine, walking for days with their children.”

In one very moving part, she highlighted: “I spoke with Oksana who
is 6 months pregnant and made the journey to Rudy with her 7-year-old son
Goran. And also Olga, and her children Jan (4) and Paulina (5).

“Crying, they tell me how grateful they are for the kindness of the
Polish people, and they say they will try their hardest to do their best whilst
here. But they see their stay as temporary as, more than anything, they long to
return home to their country, to their husbands who are fighting for the
survival of Ukraine. We talked about always believing in hope, the smile of a
child.”

Sarah’s followers sent dozens of messages of support for the work she
was doing, as one wrote: “You have the sweetest soul. The world is lucky
to have you.”

A second added: “How special you are,” and a third posted:
“I’m so happy you could be there when most of the rest of us aren’t able,
just having someone to listen and tell their truth to is what is giving them
hope, I’m sure I’d [love] it (not least your wonderful hugs!)”

In an official statement released earlier this week,
Sarah said: “I want to do my bit through my charity, Sarah’s Trust, and am
here to hear more about what is needed on the ground. So far, we have organized
for three articulated lorries with supplies designed to help refugees from
Ukraine in Poland.

“These include clothes for women, children, nappies, hand sanitizers,
toiletries, torches, and non-perishable food like porridge oats. All of these
items have been provided by kind-hearted donors in the UK who I can’t thank
enough.”

Explaining her motivation to help others, the Duchess continued: “I
think those of us in countries further away have a duty to help the Polish
people respond to this crisis. Two of our lorries have gone to Rudy and
Czeladz, and the third one will go to the Silesia region. I feel a duty to help
Poland because I feel such a connection to this country, which I first visited
in 1992.”
