This fund will continue to provide scholarship support for one student from Ukraine to complete a two-year baccalaureate diploma program. Since 1996 eighteen students from Ukraine have graduated from Pearson College. UKRAINIAN LIBRARY FUND
It is with great pride that we announce the re-opening of the Ukrainian Library in Victoria on October 29, 2022. Additionally our newly hired librarian, Svitlana Burlaka, is actively creating story time for children, book reviews and promotion, and is searching for new materials by contemporary authors to add to our current book collection. To keep up to date on library activities take a look at the Ukrainian library Facebook account. https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100087310630459
Although we have made great progress we still require additional shelving and workstations. We also want to add new books and materials to support our growing Ukrainian community including the many displaced persons from Ukraine, particularly the children. SEND HUMANITARIAN AID TO UKRAINE
As the war in Ukraine continues on into the winter months, and key infrastructure is being destroyed, it is as important as ever to provide support to Ukraine. If that is your intention I encourage you to consider making your financial donation to the Canada Ukraine Foundation (CUF), which in partnership with the national office of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress, has undertaken an expensive fundraising campaign to provide humanitarian aid in support of Ukraine. Donation options are provided on the CUF website https://www.cufoundation.ca
All three streams are worthy causes, we encourage you to provide support to any one or all of them.
