On Tuesday, March 15, 2022, Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Mary of Denmark met with the Secretary-General of the DRC Danish Refugee Council, Ms. Charlotte Slente, at Amalienborg Slot in Copenhagen.
According to the Danish royal court, the Crown Princess:
“…received a briefing on the refugee situation in Ukraine. The DRC Danish Refugee Council is working closely with authorities and local organizations to help the many people who cross the border to Ukraine’s neighboring countries every day. The Secretary-General has just returned from Poland which has received approximately 1.7 million refugees from Ukraine. Secretary-General Slente was to tell the Crown Princess at today’s briefing about the organization’s work in contributing to providing safety and protection for the many refugees who are often women and children. It is a special challenge in Ukraine to secure the humanitarian corridors so that emergency aid can reach to the needy and people can be helped out.”
