Pershore Aid for Ukrainian Refugees

Updated: Mar 16

Pershore Rotary Club have launched an appeal, which we hope will be followed up by street collections this weekend in Pershore, to provide help for the over 900,000 (BBC news 2nd March 2022) refugees now leaving Ukraine for Poland, Romania and many other European Countries.

Rotary International said on Tuesday: "Following a meeting this afternoon with Rotary International General Secretary, John Hewko, which included more than 40 Rotarian leaders from Ukraine and neighbouring countries, plans have been put in place for Rotary to respond and support the horrific and ongoing humanitarian crisis in Ukraine."

All the income from your donations will be sent to help the Rotary backed efforts including the Rotary Action Group for Refugees, Shelterbox and DEC, and will be specified to be used in supporting the Ukrainian Refugees displaced by the Russian invasion of their country.
