From Horse Tour Operator to Relief Worker


The Ukraine still tops the news and the war is on-going, soon to enter its fourth week. Millions of people are fleeing the bombings and they bring their animals too if they can. Horses sometimes cannot be taken along as roads and bridges are destroyed and fodder is almost unavailable. In today’s episode I am talking to Pawel Jasinski from Poland who normally operates horse trails in different countries including the Ukraine. Poland shares a long border with Ukraine and is the prime spot to get relief aid into the war-torn country as well as welcoming refugees.

Pawel speaks Ukrainian and has a lot of friends there, bringing groups of riders several times a year. When the war started he decided to do something to help the Ukrainian people. He started a fundraiser and personally drives convoys of aid to the border where it is received by his Ukrainian horse riding partner who makes sure it will be distributed to those in need. In today’s episode he tells us about the Ukraine and his views on the war.
