Tension is quietly building in Polish communities, as the country struggles to provide for an outsized portion of the more than 2.5 million refugees who have fled the war with Russia.
Within a couple of weeks, Duszniki-Zdrój had brought in around 800 Ukrainians, including 72 orphans, who took over the centres. Many of the refugees didn’t stay long, but roughly 600 have remained in town, including all of the orphans. And while the sports hall is no longer serving as a shelter, the beds and supplies have been left in place, in case there’s another wave of arrivals.
