The Community across British Columbia is hard at work to provide support to the Ukrainian refugees, and it is inspiring! Along with supporters, Compassionate Resource Warehouse has now shipped two containers to the Poland refugee base. Here at Rick’s Heart Foundation, we feel blessed to be able to help with these containers and provide shipping within the province of donated items. There will be more shipments as the logistics line up. Below you will find photos, news articles, and updates from some of the Organizations working on these projects.
Thank you to every single person who donated, volunteered, and supported these efforts! Remember, welcoming refugees into our Communities with kindness and compassion will help these families with their new start.
Soap For Hope has been providing products (hygiene and linens) weekly to Ukrainian refugee gatherings in Victoria, BC. Some of these families will be transitioning into their own homes this month, and we have provided them the linens (bedding). Laundry detergent, diapers, and make-up will be gifted to Ukrainian families who are relocated to BC. Supporting local Ukrainian families is a joint effort with Salvation Army.
In Vancouver, we donated family hygiene kits for 500 families and will continue to support them whenever needed.
In Nanaimo, we donated family hygiene kits for 20 new refugee families that recently arrived.
