On June 3, 2017 a container of medical supplies to assist wounded and displaced victims of Russian aggression was sent to Ukraine by the UCC-MPC Euromaidan Committee. The bulk of the medical equipment was collected and donated by International Hope Canada. Costs for shipping the container to Ukraine were covered by a $5000 donation from the Ukrainian Catholic Women’s League of Canada branch at St. Anne’s Ukrainian Catholic Church in Winnipeg, as well as from proceeds of the Ukrainian Women in Politics dinner sponsored by the Winnipeg branch of the Ukrainian Canadian Women’s Council. The container will stop in Toronto where additional supplies will be added, and then sent to a hospital in Mariupol, Ukraine. Mariupol is located on the front lines of the current war and is an important strategic center.
UCC-MPC thanks everyone involved in the shipping of the this, the second container of aid it has sent to Ukraine, but especially is grateful UCWLC for their generous gift. UCC-MPC also highly values its close relationship with IHC without which the much needed medical assistance would not be able to reach Ukraine.
