UNITE FOR UKRAINE Luncheon
May 4 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm
Our sister city in Ukraine needs help.
The tragedy unfolding in Ukraine has touched hearts around the world and the people of Saskatoon have a unique connection. In 1991, Saskatoon and Chernivtsi became “sister cities” because our two communities share much in common, including cultural ties. The two cities are about the same population size. They are both bustling hubs for education, arts, culture and commerce.
A month ago, Chernivtsi had a population of 260,000. Since then, the city has swelled by an estimated 150,000 people in urgent need of food, shelter and medical care. Tragically, the number of displaced individuals coming to Chernivtsi continues to climb as residents and volunteers work 24/7 to provide respite and relief.
The Mayor of Chernivtsi has sent letters requesting equipment and supplies to help with the effort. First responders in Chernivtsi have also requested assistance from Saskatoon’s Firefighters (IAFF Local 80) who are currently gathering emergency and medical supplies,including diesel generators, firefighting gear, radios, large capacity tents, sleeping bags and lifesaving equipment.
You and I can make a difference.
Together, we can purchase, donate and ship what Chernivtsi needs. We can make a difference by providing vital equipment and supplies to those caring for the hurt, hungry and homeless on the front lines.
