Geoff and Ian
Ukrainian refugee support
Rotary Alexandra project to help a group of Ukrainian refugees staying in Carlton. The idea was initiated by Rotarian Geoff Proctor. On Thursday 18th August Sharon Fox and Ian and Helen Gibb drove to Melbourne with two carloads of groceries,potatoes and food vouchers. The group is being mentored by Ukrainian speaker Lesia Bugryn who assisted us. They were very pleased that our small community had sourced so much produce especially from Foodworks and Dobsons. Rotary has financed vouchers for local supermarkets.
The group changes as time goes on, but there are always about 150 mostly women and children.
Thanks to all those who donated goods and their time.
