A group of local volunteers recently put themselves in the line of fire to help the people of Ukraine. The group, called Guardians of Hope, does relief work across the globe, often providing water, increasing access to medical care, and building schools for children.

Representatives from the group recently took two trips to Ukraine. They say during one trip, bombs hit the place where they were staying; they grappled with the reality of the situation as they cleaned up pieces of the weapons.

This hour, we hear about their work on the ground in Ukraine, and we discuss the day-to-day struggles Ukrainians are facing. Our guests:
