As we discussed at last night’s visitation, some of our Lodges were looking for ways to help our Ukrainian Brothers and all the people caught up in the war. Brother Phung mentioned that he works with a doctor at the Fox Chase Hospital who is traveling to the Polish & Ukrainian border to provide medical care to refugees- a majority of whom are women and children.
Donations are currently being collected at the Ukrainian Educational and Cultural Center in Jenkintown until March 18th, at this time. The UECC website will have the information of items they are looking for and other avenues of donations as well. UECC | Ukrainian Educational and Cultural Center | Jenkintown (ueccphila.org)
However, donations are being accepted on the gofundme page of Dr. Laura Bukavina. Fundraiser by Laura Bukavina : Assistance to Ukrainian Refugees (gofundme.com) The gofundme page can provide the funds for Dr. Bukavina to buy whatever supplies that are needed for her next trip back to refugee camps on the Polish-Ukrainian border.
Please pass this information on to your Lodge and your fellow brethren. Thanks.
