A Fundraising Benefit Concert for Ukraine

We express our deepest gratitude to all the volunteers, businesses, and organizations arranging this fundraising concert. You are the real heroes! Your time and efforts are greatly appreciated, recognized, and valued.

We proudly announce that the total fundraising outcome of both events was $14,090 ($7,507 Port Moody & $6,584 Victoria). All proceeds were allocated to our Ukrainian Displaced Assistance Program (UDAP). Thanks to this program, we were able to help hundreds of Ukrainian families who were forced to seek refuge in Vancouver due to the war.

Whether it is a community night, art exhibition, gala concert, theater play, or intercultural festival, please keep joining, spreading the word about Ukraine, and inviting your local friends.

Now, more than ever, Ukraine needs our support. We know it might be tiring, but we must keep going. By doing so, we will continue to stand united as a nation. So please, keep coming, join most of the events you are available and interested in, spread the word, invite and bring your local network, and let’s keep helping Ukraine. Glory to Ukraine!
