Ukrainian Diaspora Support Canada (formerly Ukraine Support Lanark County) is a non-profit initiative led by Zack Netherly and Mary Mokrushyna that seeks to bring families and individuals fleeing the war in Ukraine to our area. St James’ and other local churches are directly involved in supporting Zack and Mary in their work, which we consider to be God’s work. They are organizing to provide billeted housing, medical, legal and psychological supports and to make sure people feel welcome here as long as they need to stay. Visit their website for more information.
The main need right now is for financial contributions to help cover airfare. We are asking donors to make contribution directly to UADSC at this time rather than contributing through us or any other charity. Visit their website for more information.
