Jill Biden to meet with Ukrainian refugees
First lady, Jill Biden, will use her second solo overseas trip to get an up-close look at the Ukrainian refugee crisis by visiting Romania and Slovakia.
There, she will spend Mother’s Day meeting with displaced families in a small Slovakian village on the border with Ukraine.
“Its so important to the president and to me that the Ukrainian people know that we stand with them,” Jill Biden told reporters traveling with her Thursday night.
“I can only imagine the grief families are feeling,” Jill Biden said this week.
“I know that we might not share a language, but I hope that I can convey, in ways so much greater than words, that their resilience inspires me, that they are not forgotten, and that all Americans stand with them still.”
The first lady also will meet during the trip with humanitarian aid workers, educators, government officials and US embassy personnel, the White House said.
