The Rotary Club of Westmount has partnered with 5 Rotary clubs in Iași, Romania, where thousands of Ukrainian refugees are pouring across the Romanian border in urgent need of services and support. Most of the refugees fleeing to safety are women and children.
Rotarians on the front lines are providing:
medical assistance
food, water
food for children with special requirements
mattresses, pillows, sheets, blankets
transport to accommodation and services
legal assistance
translation services
personal hygiene products
toys, vitamins, diapers
prepaid SIM cards and battery chargers
and so much more
Scenes from Iași, Romania in March 2022. All of the proceeds collected from the donation page on our website, through our profile on Canada Helps, or sent directly by cheque or eTransfer are directed to Rotary clubs on the ground providing support and services to Ukrainian refugees day and night, as they serve to change lives.
Our 'Sunday at the Pub for Ukraine' event was an incredible success!
We raised more than $7,000 for Rotary initiatives to provide urgent relief, resources, and support to Ukrainian refugees in Romania through our partner clubs in Iași, Romania.
A huge thank you to Mike Uzan and White Dawg Project for being a part of such a fun way to make a difference!
If you would like to be a part of these efforts, we are always accepting donations made through our website (our CanadaHelps profile) or made via etransfer! Check back for more updates on this important project.
