Support Ukraine

As nearly all clubs in our district D-2231 we are trying to help the refugees from Ukraine. Each of us personally, but we also want to help as a Rotary Club in the grander scale of things.

We are currently cooperating with District 7630 (Maryland and Delaware) – in particular with RC Long Neck Sunrise and RC Easton, as well as District 5580 – in particular RC Duluth Skyline in ensuring the humanitarian aid reaches those that require it the most. Please contact us, if you would like to join in our efforts – the more of us, the better!

Representatives of RC Easton (Frank Gunsallus) is already in Poland, helping out our project efforts and the refugees as much as they can.

At the moment our immediate projects are:

– purchasing prescription and non-prescription medicine for the refugee shelter in Tomice (south of Warsaw) which houses ca. 200 Ukrainian refugees (nearly all women and children) – we have obtained funds for this project from the Rotary Foundation disaster response grant provided to District 2231

– establishing a refugee support and education center for refugees.

If you would like to find out more about the center, please see the briefs prepared below:

Refugee Support and Education Center

Minibus for Refugee Support and Education Center and for the Orphanage in Pęchery

Projects we coordinate with other NGO’s and other organizations:

– organizing parties for Ukrainian children to celebrate their birthdays

– transportation and shelter in other European countries for the refugees
