INFO: How You Can Support Ukraine
The images coming out of Ukraine over the past month have been horrific – kids huddled together in bomb shelters, hospitals and apartments getting shelled by Russia’s military and Putin’s attack on a nuclear power plant to name a few.
Understandably, Canadians want to help.
Our Executive Secretary, Melanie Harvie, received some correspondence recently from a contact in Ukraine. During a work trip to Ukraine a decade ago, Melanie met Oksana Tkachuk (from Kyiv, Ukraine) at the World Taxpayers Conference. A few days ago, Oksana wrote to Melanie to ask if she would help spread the word about one initiative that is supporting people and families in Ukraine:
My name is Oksana Tkachuk and I hope you remember me. We got acquainted with you during the World Taxpayers Conference that was held in Ukraine in 2012 .
I was among the organizers of this event and hosted you in our peaceful city of Kyiv at that time together with the Taxpayers Association of Ukraine. I do not work with the Taxpayers Association now but address you as a Ukrainian.
Today, Ukraine suffers from Russian invasion and every Ukrainian struggles for peace, freedom and truth. We use every opportunity to support our army and people who bravely defend our motherland. That is why I kindly address you to support our country at this crucial period.
After the Russian invasion into Ukraine in February 2022, we have been receiving a lot of messages connected with the following questions: “How can I help Ukraine?”, “Where can I send humanitarian aid?”, “What kind of help is relevant right now?”.
Please find information about the platform that aggregates official resources for providing humanitarian and other aid to Ukraine. I would be also thankful if you could spread this info among your partner companies or organizations in Canada and the world.
