It is a tragic and sad time for the people of Ukraine and the world.
At Rotary, we are deeply concerned by the deteriorating situation in Ukraine and the escalating loss of life and humanitarian hardship there. Continued military action against Ukraine will not only devastate the region, but also risk spreading tragic consequences across Europe and the world.
As one of the world’s largest humanitarian organizations, we have made peace the cornerstone of our global mission. We join the international community in calling for an immediate cease fire, withdrawal of Russian forces, and a restoration of diplomatic efforts to resolve this conflict through dialogue.
In the past decade, Rotary clubs in Ukraine, Russia and nearby countries have transcended national differences and have actively engaged in peace-building projects to promote goodwill and to marshal assistance for the victims of war and violence. Today, our thoughts are with our fellow Rotary members and others in Ukraine coping with these tragic events. Rotary International will do everything in its power to bring aid, support and peace to the region.
Our thoughts are very much with the people of Ukraine, and our fellow Rotary members. Rotary will do everything in its power to bring aid, support and peace to the region.
Ukraine Relief Fund
In order to expedite the delivery of relief supplies, we are establishing a District Interim Ukraine Relief Fund today, to receive donations immediately from Clubs and members. Please get this message to your club members, as we know there are many who may wish to make personal donations.
Both RI and RGB&I are working to establish the most effective way to use relief funds and it is intended that funds raised now in our District will be forwarded to either the RGB&I Disaster Recovery Trust or any Rotary Fund established specifically for use in Ukraine.
Donations can be made immediately by bank transfer to the District Bank a/c, details below, or by posting cheques to the District Treasurer. Cheques should be in favour if Rotary District 1160 with Ukraine Relief written on the back.
Donations by post to: District Treasurer, Cantona, Dunbur Road, Wicklow A67K680
