The world is witnessing a vast humanitarian crisis unfold in the Ukraine. The crisis in Ukraine is having devastating consequences on civilians as families flee their homes. According to the United Nations, more than 3 million people, most of them women and children, have sought refuge in neighbouring countries and across Europe, while about 2 million more people have been displaced within Ukraine.
Rotarians around the world are responding to the needs of the people of Ukraine. The Rotary Club of Hamilton is responding by immediately releasing funds to support aid through ShelterBox. The Rotary Club of Hamilton’s Board of Directors has allocated $1500 to support ShelterBox in the Ukraine.
ShelterBox is working closely with Rotary and other humanitarian partners on the ground to get aid to those who need it most. ShelterBox is providing lifesaving aid for families in the Ukraine.
As military activities escalate in Ukraine, millions of people are on the move, desperately trying to flee to safety. Innocent civilians are being killed, families and lives are being torn apart.
ShelterBox is responding to the Ukraine crisis. They are working on three projects – two within Ukraine and one to support refugees fleeing the county
