Photos of a train station in Poland have gone viral on social media, after it was revealed that people were leaving behind strollers and supplies for parents arriving from Ukraine.

The touching sentiment was captured in images taken and shared to Twitter by photojournalist Francesco Malavolta, who captioned his first post [translated]: "Strollers left at the station for women arriving from Ukraine with babies."

The first photo shows a series of strollers lined up on a platform at the Przemyśl Główny train station, near the border crossing between Ukraine and the city of Przemyśl.

Speaking to TODAY about the amazing act of humanity, Malavolta also revealed that he was able to speak to one of the women who left a stroller.

"I spoke to one of them saying she was happy to have left her stroller and some clothes at the nearby school out of solidarity with the incoming people from Ukraine," he recalled.

Malavolta also told Fox Digital that many of the strollers were stuffed with supplies that parents and children may need, such as warm blankets.

But amazingly, this touching story doesn't end there.

When Malavolta visited the Slovakian city of Vyšné, near the Ukraine border, he was welcomed by the exact same sight - a row of strollers and supplies placed there for arriving Ukrainian parents.

In response to the image, one Twitter user wrote: "Poland and its people have really done such an amazing job with its humanitarianism."

On Tuesday, U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi tweeted that 2 million refugees had fled Ukraine following Russia's invasion on February 24.

"Today the outflow of refugees from Ukraine reaches two million people. Two million," Grandi tweeted.

Per Politico, most of those fleeing Ukraine are crossing the borders into neighboring countries, with Polish Health Minister Adam Niedzielski said on Monday that over 100,000 people per day are arriving in Poland.
