On 3/23/2022, we had a very compelling presentation from PDG Sergii Zavadskii of RC Kyiv. This was our largest Zoom meeting ever, with members of our club, and clubs all over the world, adding up to more than 100 people. We had attendees from at least six countries (USA, Ukraine, Canada, Jordan, UK, & Romania). 
 
There are 62 Rotary Clubs in Ukraine, eleven of them in Kyiv alone. During the presentation, Sergii, who is an executive in the chemicals business and has two sons in the military, was not in Kyiv but had taken his grandchildren to a rural, hopefully safer area in western Ukraine near Uzhgorod and zoomed in from there.
 
Thanks in particular to Roland Gagne and Melissa Cilley for arranging the presentation, and to Brian Dallaire for capably managing such a large meeting. 
 
Sergii showed this map of where clubs are vs the fighting, and attempts clubs are putting together to supply food and medicine:

Today at noon, we'll have a follow up meeting, hosted by Melissa Cilley on Zoom.
 
Topic: Conversation with Ukrainian teen and her grandmother who fled to Romania
Time: Mar 24, 2022 12:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
