Meet the Edinburgh volunteers on the frontline as Ukrainian refugees arrive in Scotland

Four Community Taskforce Volunteers spoke exclusively to Edinburgh Live about their experiences on the front lines of the volunteer response on Friday, and the overarching theme was small acts of kindness that ripple outward.

These volunteers are incredibly dedicated. If there’s a delayed flight with refugees on board, most of our volunteers will stay until they know those people are off the plane and safe. There’s no expectation, it’s simply above and beyond the call of duty.
Paul Wilson, Chief Officer of Volunteer Edinburgh.

We stayed overnight in the airport with them so they weren’t alone.
Iryna Shyphat, Community Taskforce Volunteer with Volunteer Edinburgh
