During his recent trip to Poland, John Babiak gave toys and gifts to Ukrainian children displaced by the war with Russia.

John Babiak's parents were displaced from Ukraine during World War II, eventually settling in upstate New York and teaching their children the value of helping others. It's one reason why the photographer from Denver recently made a trip to Eastern Europe to assist those displaced by the war with Russia. Babiak is working with World Central Kitchen, a global humanitarian group, and has shared some of the photos he's taken on his journey with Colorado Public Radio.
