First Lady to Travel to Romania and Slovakia

She plans to meet with Ukrainian refugees. 

First Lady Jill Biden will travel later this week to Romania and Slovakia to meet with U.S. service members and Ukrainian refugees, becoming the latest official from President Biden’s administration to visit the region around Ukraine as that nation continues to fight off a Russian military assault. 

She is scheduled to travel on May 5, the White House announced. In addition to service members and refugees, she will meet with embassy personnel, humanitarian aid workers, and government officials from Romania and Slovakia over the course of four days. 

More than 5 million people have fled Ukraine since Russia invaded the country over two months ago. Many of those refugees have entered Poland and other countries, including Romania and Slovakia which have taken in hundreds of thousands of Ukrainian refugees. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For safety for the first lady as she travels to Eastern Europe.
  • For the Lord to comfort the Ukrainian refugees through the first lady’s words and presence.
  • For the first lady to be an encouragement to the U.S. troops.
