Nebraska travel agency launches nonprofit to help Ukrainian refugees in Poland

“Operation Safe Harbor Ukraine” will provide hotels, food and WIFI to refugees in Poland

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Executive Travel is launching “Operation Safe Harbor Ukraine” (OSHU) to help refugees fleeing war.

The program will provide hotel rooms, food, medical supplies and Wi-Fi to refugees in Poland.

Executive Travel will donate 100% of proceeds to help those in need. Board Chairman Steve Glenn explained how Nebraskans are adept at meeting that need.

“Nebraskans have great compassion and they care about people. We have to show Ukraine that we love them, that we care about them, and this puts that into action,” Glenn said.

Executive Travel is also pledging a matching donation of $25,000. All donations are tax-exempt through a partnership with Heartland Bible Church.

Glenn says they can help over 200 Ukrainians in just one week. It also says “It only takes $51 a night for a hotel, food and WIFI and that will cover four people.”

OSHU is partnering with Best Western to provide a hotel in Warsaw for these refugees and their families.

Glenn also explained that this was part “A” of their project. Part “B” is to bring the refugees back to Lincoln.

After President Joe Biden announced that the United States would welcome 100,000 refugees, Executive Travel began working to bring people here and provide them with housing.

OSHU’s goal is to continue to receive donations throughout the year so that we can continue to provide this service and help those in need.
