Hands of Hope delivering aid in Romania

Charity workers from the Isle of Man are assisting refugees at the Ukrainian border with Romania.

On Monday the UN estimated around half-a-million people have fled the fighting in Ukraine into neighbouring countries.

Manx Radio's Lewis Foster spoke with Ruth and Chris Baker, from Douglas, who are in Romania with Manx-based charity Hands of Hope:

The couple will be sending us regular updates from the border as and when they can, and here's the first video diary from Ruth.

Chief Minister Alfred Cannan will make a statement at the start of this morning's House of Keys sitting on the situation in Ukraine.

The sitting starts at 10am, you can listen live on AM1368, online and on smartphone apps.
