TAMPA, Fla. — The Tampa-based non-profit Project DYNAMO recently rescued nearly 500 people in Mariupol.
Project DYNAMO started its efforts nearly four months ago after the Russian invasion in Ukraine.
Founder Bryan Stern spoke to ABC Action News Thursday night after rescuing another 60 people.
The non-profit rescued women, children, infants and families from the Russian-occupied territories of Mariupol and Kherson.
Stern takes refugees safely to Poland or Romania.
