Polish mothers are helping Ukrainian women and their children who come, empty-handed, to Poland.
The stroller movement began in the Polish border town of Przemyśl. This city was quickly joined by others. Social media became full of pictures of empty strollers left at railway stations. But what’s the story?
Polish moms for Ukrainian moms
“Polish moms left their strollers at the train station for women from Ukraine and their children,” we can read under one photo, which quickly went viral on social media. These abandoned strollers are the idea of Polish mothers to help Ukrainian women and their children. It is also a symbolic way to show solidarity with women and their children fleeing war-stricken Ukraine.
