Responding to Global Crisis

Our community is deeply concerned by the growing humanitarian crisis caused by the invasion of Ukraine. British Columbia is expected to receive approximately 17 to 20 percent of the 106,000 Ukrainians headed to Canada – that is just over 21,000 people – mostly women and children. They have limited access to resources, and exhibit signs of PTSD. They need our help! We have established a Ukraine Crisis Fund, and invite you to join us in solidarity with those who have been displaced due to the invasion of Ukraine. Join us as we help Ukrainian women and children find community in Canada.
