The ongoing conflict in Ukraine has displaced over 12 million Ukrainians, with many seeking refuge in neighbouring countries and beyond. The CC&L Foundation has stepped up to provide vital humanitarian aid. Through two successful fundraising campaigns, the Foundation has raised $409,000 in support of eleven organizations such as Help Us Help and the Canada-Ukraine Foundation.

The impact of these funds has been far reaching, including:

  • Delivery of food boxes to almost 1 million people in 21 oblasts
  • Provision of bulletproof vests, food, shelter and assistance in relocating families
  • War Trauma Therapy program started for 9,900 children
  • Purchase of 1,000 new firefighting sets of personal equipment
  • Re-launch of the Canada-Ukraine Surgical Aid Program
  • Delivery of supplies and medicine to 78 hospitals across Ukraine
  • Delivery of 140 metric tons of buckwheat seeds for harvest in October, providing much-needed food security

The Foundation’s efforts have also extended to the Ukrainian-Canadian community, with the Displaced Ukrainians Appeal funding over 1,000 displaced children to attend summer camps in Canada.

Through its various charitable initiatives and the dedication of volunteers, the CC&L Foundation continues to make a positive impact in the lives of Ukrainians affected by the conflict, providing necessary help and hope for a better tomorrow.
