Ukraine Relief

Contributions for Ukraine relief have been pouring in from SJC members. Those funds, expected to total almost $40,000 will be sent to The Rotary Foundation Disaster Response Fund that distributes grants to clubs and districts surrounding Ukraine that are helping with refugees. The grants provide for food, water, medical equipment, and shelter for Ukrainian refugees.


The crisis in Ukraine is having devastating consequences on civilians as families flee their homes. According to the United Nations, more than 3 million people, most of them women and children, have sought refuge in neighboring countries and across Europe, while about 1 million more people have been displaced within Ukraine.


Rotary and Rotaract clubs in Europe and around the world have taken swift action and are working with members nearby to provide food, water, medical equipment, and shelter for refugees.


The Rotary Foundation created a funding channel for relief efforts in Ukraine. Donate Now.
