Help Need in Ukraine

It is a tragic and sad time for the people of Ukraine and the world.

At Rotary, we are deeply concerned by the deteriorating situation in Ukraine and the escalating loss of life and humanitarian hardship there. Continued military action against Ukraine will not only devastate the region, but also risk spreading tragic consequences across Europe and the world.

As one of the world’s largest humanitarian organizations, we have made peace the cornerstone of our global mission. We join the international community in calling for an immediate cease fire, withdrawal of Russian forces, and a restoration of diplomatic efforts to resolve this conflict through dialogue.

In the past decade, Rotary clubs in Ukraine, Russia and nearby countries have transcended national differences and have actively engaged in peace-building projects to promote goodwill and to marshal assistance for the victims of war and violence. Today, our thoughts are with our fellow Rotary members and others in Ukraine coping with these tragic events. Rotary International will do everything in its power to bring aid, support and peace to the region.

Rotary International

My name is Jasmine Wong, I am one of the newest members of the Rotary Club of Fraserview, I joined because I want to make a difference.   I am a piano teacher, and sometimes a singer/ performer in Vancouver. 
I am also a single mother of four young daughters, and while things at times can be hard especially during COVID, as it has been for everyone, my daughters and myself are shocked and worried about the families, the people in the Ukraine.  As we watch the news and events unfold, my daughters said to me; "Mom this is awful, those poor people what can we do to help them?"   
So,  I have decided that I would like to help by donating money from this week's lessons, and get it to Rotary so that they can get it to an organization that can get help to the families in need.
Our Rotary club is collecting money and then will donate to ShelterBox Canada who can get help to the people of Ukraine. I will start the donations and to start this effort, I am donating $100 to get the fund started, hopefully later I can do more.  Our membership Chair Nigel has already said he will match or beat the donation.... thank you Nigel, so now we have it started.  
Here are the option amounts that you can donate, we will post this here, and send out emails, perhaps if you don't mind, you could all send the same to your friends, family and business contacts with this simple plea from my 4 daughters and myself, can we please do whatever we can to help those families.  
From Our families in Canada to those families in the Ukraine, from our club members in Fraserview to those club members of Rotary Ukraine, which make up a portion of the displaced.
My hope is that we can make a difference for a few.
Thank you
Jasmine Wong,  Rotarian

Last week our DG Lorne spoke about ShelterBox and the wonderful work they are doing in the Ukraine.
I decided to help out for this cause!   I am selling “I support Ukraine” pins, with net proceeds being donated to ShelterBox Canada —  the pins cost $15 and I am donating $10 — the remainder covers supplies.  Recently I raised $2,500 for the Abbotsford/Merritt flood victims with my BC Strong keychains.
