His Grace, The Rt. Rev. Bishop Illarion (Rudnyk)
Let us unite with all our suffering brothers and sisters at this time and help ease their burdens as much as we can, according to our talents and our abilities by humanitarian aid. Remember the words of St. Apostle Paul: “if one member suffers, all members suffer.: (I Cor 12:26) Let us find a way to do good to dispel at least a fragment of evil.
As proud Ukrainian-Canadian, I stand with the Ukrainian people, and my Ukrainian academic colleagues, who fight for democracy, human rights, and the creativity of the human spirit.

I stand with Ukraine because it is in my heart and soul; my family, friends and artistic colleagues of Ukraine are my heroes. Their passion and strength are like none other. May God grant them the freedom they so deserve!

Ian Burns, President and Chief Executive Officer of Servus Credit Union
Servus stands in solidarity with Ukrainian civilians facing unjustified violence. Our organizations roots are intertwined with the Ukrainian communities here in Alberta and across the Nation. That’s why we donated $50,000 to the Canada-Ukraine Foundation and are working to provide other financial supports for those displaced in the crisis.
The Rotary Club Edmonton West, Alberta
Contributed generous funds for “Alberta Stands with Ukraine”; to support Ukraine’s dire needs caused by an unprovoked war.
Our Club also shipped Covid related equipment and materials to the Rotary Club of Ivano-Frankvsk for their distribution. John Hewko, a Rotarian from the Rotary Club of Kyiv is the Secretary General of Rotary International.
I am motivated to donate and support you due to my family heritage of being Ukrainian decent as both of my grand parents immigrated here to Alberta in the early 1900’s. I continue to embrace all things Ukrainian as this is a very important part of who I am.
I am a second generation Ukrainian Canadian theatre artist in amiskwaciwâskahikan Treaty 6 Territory, and co-Artistic Producer of Pyretic Productions. I believe it is more important than ever to be a Ukrainian artist and to support Ukrainian art. Art can connect through empathy, compassion, and something intangible.
