As the voice of DMCs worldwide – with members in 32 countries and 5 continents – ADMEI stands in solidarity with all individuals and companies impacted by the unprovoked attacks on the people of Ukraine. The association shares its prayers, concern, and support for the Ukrainian people, DMCs in the region, and the hospitality industry worldwide. They support finding a peaceful resolution to the conflict and hope that all DMCs and those in the travel and tourism sector can once again share the magic of their destinations with visitors from around the world.

For those seeking ways to help SITE Global has a chapter in Poland, led by President Grazyna Grot-Duziak that is actively supporting refugees from Ukraine who has crossed the border into Poland with transport, accommodation, food, medicines, cleaning products, medical and legal assistance, and even making their own homes available for mothers with children. They are routing financial donations through Polish Humanitarian Action, an aid organization that has been responding to human tragedies caused by wars and natural disasters for over 25 years – “seeing in each of these crises the fate of another human being.”
