Some of Kelowna’s Ukrainian allies have fallen.
Danylo Sora told Capital News that two members of a Ukrainian defence the unit “were killed by Russian occupiers”.
Sora broke the news on the Kelowna Stands With Ukraine facebook page that two men in a Ukrainian defence unit have been pronounced dead.
Supporters from the facebook page have been sending supplies to defence groups across Ukraine over the last month. The last bags sent to Ukraine were delivered to the defence unit before they engaged in the lethal combat.
“I bring the message to our community that their help is really important, but to remember that the war is not over yet,” Sora told Capital News.
He urges people from Kelowna to continue to support the defence efforts in Ukraine. He said that donations of money, medical supplies and tactical gear are still needed. He said that he wants people to “stay with Ukraine till victory comes! It’s really important for our soldiers.”
Denys Seorozhuk is of the organizers of the fundraising and tactical gear initiatives. Seorozhuk said that he is proud of the Kelowna community and their generosity.
Seorozhuk assures anyone looking to donate that the Kelowna Stands With Ukraine fundraising is completely volunteer-run and said that there are no administrative fees. To donate auto-deposits, an account has been set up at firstname.lastname@example.org.
